    Probability that bus arrives to station ?




    Hello!

    I have a problem....

    A bus arives to station 07.15 but is often late. Uniform distribution!
    Bus is late between 0 and 7 minutes!
    a
    a) What is probability that buss arrives 07.18?
    b) What is probability that buss arrives between 07.17 and 07.18?


    should i begin with 0<3<=7(minutes) and 0<2<7 ???

    Thanks

    I guess you are assuming continuous Uniform distribution.
    In that case, any of 0<3<=7 or 0<3<7 can consider.
    In the long run, we're all dead.
