# Finding a Probability In Exercises 19-26, sketch the graph of the probability density function over the indicated interval and find each probability. See Example 3. f ( x ) = 1 50 x ,        [ 0 , 10 ] (a) P ( 0 < x < 6 ) (b) P ( 4 < x < 6 ) (c) P ( 8 < x < 10 ) (d) P ( x ≥ 2 )

(a)

To determine

To calculate: The probability P(0<x<6) over the interval [0,10], where the probability density function is f(x)=150x.

Explanation

Given Information:

The probability density function is f(x)=150x and the interval is [0,10].

Formula used:

A function f is a probability density function when it is non-negative and continuous on the interval [a,b] and when abf(x)dx=1 and the probability,

P(a<x<b)=abf(x)dx

Calculation:

Consider the function,

f(x)=150x

Now, the probability that x lies between 0 and 6 is computed as

P(0<x<6)=06f(x)dx=06150xdx=150

(b)

To determine

To calculate: The probability P(4<x<6) over the interval [0,10], where the probability density function is f(x)=150x.

(c)

To determine

To calculate: The probability P(8<x<10) over the interval [0,10], where the probability density function is f(x)=150x.

(d)

To determine

To calculate: The probability P(x2) over the interval [0,10], where the probability density function is f(x)=150x.
