To Fnd the probability P ( Y y ), the command in R is 1 punif(y,a,b) To fnd the value oF y so that P ( Y y ) = p , the command in R is qunif(p,a,b) To generate observed values From a uniForm distribution, the command in R is runif(numobs,a,b) where numobs is the number oF observed values you would like to generate. 2...
