Today, the waves are crashing onto the beach every 5.8 seconds. The times from when a person arrives at the shoreline until a crashing wave is observed follows a Uniform distribution from 0 to 5.8 seconds. Round to 4 decimal places where possible.

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) =

Find the minimum for the upper quartile. seconds
