Refer to the probability distribution given in the previous exercise. Put the following probabilities in order, from smallest to largest:

*P*(2 < *x* < 3), *P*(2 ≤ *x* ≤ 3), *P*(*x* ＜ 2), *P*(*x* > 7)

Explain your reasoning.

7.24 A particular professor never dismisses class early. Let *x* denote the amount of time past the class end time (in minutes) that passes before the professor dismisses class. Suppose that *x* has a uniform distribution on the interval from 0 to 10 minutes. The density curve is shown in the following figure:

- a. What is the probability that at most 5 minutes pass before dismissal? (Hint: See Example 7.8.)
- b. What is the probability that between 3 and 5 minutes pass before dismissal?
