Step 1

Continuous uniform distribution:

A random variable X is said to have the rectangular distribution or the continuous distribution with parameters (a, b), if a and b are the minimum and maximum possible values of X respectively, such that the probabilities of getting X in all equal intervals within (a, b) are equal. The probability density function (PDF) of the uniformly distributed random variable with parameters (a, b) is:

Step 2

Let X be the uniformly distributed variable between 4.92 and 5.7.

Denote X as the age of the children in kindergarten.

Thus, the probability density function of X is:

Step 3

1.

Mean:

The mean is obtained a...
