**Transportation** Repeat Exercise 41 for a bus that arrives between 10:00

**Transportation** The arrival time *t* (in minutes) of a bus at a bus stop is uniformly distributed between 10:00

(a) Find the probability density function for the random variable *t.*

(b) Find the mean and standard deviation of the arrival time.

(c) What is the probability that you will miss the bus if you arrive at the bus stop at 10:03

**(a)**

To determine

**To calculate:** The probability density function for the random variable *t*, if the time of arrival is *t* (in minutes) of a bus stop is uniformly distributed between 10:00 A.M. and 10:05 A.M.

Explanation

**Given information:**

The time of arrival is *t* (in minutes) of a bus stop is uniformly distributed between 10:00 A.M. and 10:05 A.M.

**Formula used:**

The uniform probability density function is,

**Calculation:**

The arrival time is *t*,

Consider a function as *f* with respect to *t*, and the time distributed as uniformly between 10:00 A.M. and 10:05 A.M.

The time distributed as uniformly between 10:00 A.M. and 10:05 A.M.

For time 10:00 A.M.

**(b)**

To determine

**To calculate:** The mean and standard deviation of the arrival time *t* of a bus stop is uniformly distributed between 10:00 A.M. and 10:05 A.M.

**(c)**

To determine

**To calculate:** The probability that to miss the bus if your arrival time at the bus stop is 10:03 A.M.
