2. The standard deviation is
3. The probability that wave will crash onto the beach exactly 3.1 seconds after the person arrives is P(x = 3.1) =
4. The probability that the wave will crash onto the beach between 0.9 and 3.4 seconds after the person arrives is P(0.9 < x < 3.4) =
5. The probability that it will take longer than 1.96 seconds for the wave to crash onto the beach after the person arrives is P(x ≥≥ 1.96) =
6. Find the minimum for the upper quartile.  seconds.

Hey there! Thank you for posting the question. However, since your question has more than 3 subparts, according to our policy, we have solved the first 3 sub parts for you. If you need help with any other sub part, please re-post the question and mention the part you need help with.

Step 2

The probability density function of a uniform distribution over the interval from ‘a’ and ‘b’ is defined below:

It is given that the time from when a person arrives at the shoreline until a crashing wave is observed follow a uniform distribution from 0 to 5.8 seconds.

Step 3

1.

The mean of the distribution can be obtained as shown below:

Therefore, the...
