Question

The waiting times between a subway departure schedule and the arrival of a passenger are uniformly distributed between

0

and

8

minutes. Find the probability that a randomly selected passenger has a waiting time greater than 3.25 minutes.

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

The distribution in this case:

Let X denotes waiting times between a subway departure schedule and the arrival of a passenger. Here, the random variable X is ...
