Step 1

A uniform distribution has an equal probability for all the outcomes of the random variable, that is, it has a constant probability. A continuous uniform distribution is defined over the range (a, b) where a is the smallest value and b is the largest value of the distribution. The values (a, b), are the parameters of the uniform distribution.

Consider, X be the random variable that represents the passengers waiting time is uniformly distributed with the parameters a= 0 and b = 9.
