Question

The arrival time of an elevator in a 12-story dormitory is equally likely at any time range during the next 4.6 minutes. a. Calculate the expected arrival time. (Round your answer to 2 decimal place.) b. What is the probability that an elevator arrives in less than 3.5 minutes? (Round intermediate calculations to at least 4 decimal places and final answer to 3 decimal places.) c. What is the probability that the wait for an elevator is more than 3.5 minutes? (Round intermediate calculations to at least 4

a. 2.30 minutes

b. 0.761

c. 0.239

Step-by-step explanation:

Since this is a uniform distribution, the probability distribution function for any given time between 0 and 4.6 minutes is: a. The expected arrival time is the average waiting time, at an uniform distribution, the average is: b. The probability for X ≤ 3.5 is: c. The probability for X ≥ 3.5 is:
