STAT 430/510 Lecture 11 Example If X is uniformly distributed over (0,10), calculate the probability that (a) X < 3 (b) X > 6 (c) 3 < X < 8 P ( X < 3 ) = R 3 0 1 10 dx = 3 10 P ( X > 6 ) = R 10 6 1 10 dx = 2 5 P ( 3 < X < 8 ) = R 8 3 1 10 dx = 1 2

STAT 430/510 Lecture 11 Example Buses arrive at a specific stop at 15-minute interval starting at 7 A.M. That is, they arrive at 7, 7:15, 7:30, 7:45, and so on. If a passenger arrives at the stop at a time that is uniformly distributed between 7 and 7:30, find the probability that he waits (a) less than 5 minutes for a bus (b) more than 10 minutes for a bus
