Step 1

Hey there! Thank you for posting the question. Since your question has more than 3 parts, we are solving the first 3 parts for you, according to our policy. If you need help with any of the other parts, please re-post the question and mention the part you want answered.

Let X be random variable uniformly distributed between 0 and 5.6 seconds.

Denote X as the time from a person arrives at the shoreline until a crashing wave is observed.

Thus, the probability density function of X is shown below:

Step 2

1)

The mean of the distribution is obtained as follows:

Step 3

2)

The standard deviation of the distrib...
