    Probability Question

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm looking to calculate the probability of the time taken for a specific event.

    I have:

    The best case scenario which normally takes 30 seconds and happens 90% of the time.

    The worst case scenario which normally takes 3 hours and happen the remaining 10% of the time.

    What would the calculation be to calculate the average time for these?

    Thanks in advance!

    Find the total time for 90 cases at 30 s and 10 cases at 3 hrs. Then average over the 100 cases.
