Q:
# A statistics professor plans classes so carefully that the lengths of her classes are uniformly distributed between 45.0 and 55.0 minutes.A) Find the probability that a given class period runs between 51.5 and 51.75 minutes.B) Find the probability of selecting a class that runs between 51.5 and 51.75 minutes. (Round to three decimal places as needed.)

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:0.025Step-by-step explanation:Hello!Given that the classes are uniformly distributed between 45.0 and 55.0 minutes, the propability distribution will be:[tex]P(x)=\frac{1}{55-45} = \frac{1}{10}[/tex]Now, we are looking for a probability P(51.5<x<51.75) which can be computed as:[tex]P(51.5<x<51.75) = \int\limits^{51.75}_{51.5} {P(x)} \, dx =\frac{1}{10}\int\limits^{51.75}_{51.5} {} \ dx\\\\P(51.5<x<51.75) = \frac{51.75-51.5}{10}=\frac{0.25}{10}[/tex]Therefore: P(51.5<x<51.75) = 0.025orP(51.5<x<51.75) = 2.5%I strongly believe that the answer for both questions have the same answer, I believe this because there is no additional info for a given class or selecting a class. I think both probabilities are the same.
