11.You arrive at a bus stop at 10 o’clock, knowing that the bus will arrive at some time uniformly distributed between 10 and 10:30. => ?𝑋(?) =30for 10: 00 < ? < 10: 30a.What is the probability that you will have to wait longer than 10 minutes? ?[? > 10: 10] = 20 ∙1
b.If, at 10:15, the bus has not yet arrived, what is the probability that you will have to wait at least an additional 10 minutes?
12.If a parachutist lands at a random point on a line between markers A and B, find the probability that she is closer to A than to B. Find the probability that her distance to A is more than three times her distance to B.
