Question

**John and Jane are working on a project, and all of their
project meetings are scheduled to start at 9:00. John always
arrives promptly at 9:00. Jane is highly disorganized and arrives
at a time that is uniformly distributed between 8:45 and 10:28. The
time (measured in minutes, a real number that can take fractional
values) between 8:45 and the time Jane arrives is thus a
continuous, uniformly distributed random variable.**

**If Jane arrives before 9:00, their project meeting will
last exactly 197 minutes. If Jane arrives after 9:00, their project
meeting will last for a time (measured in minutes, a real number
that can take fractional values, i.e., a continuous random
variable) that is uniformly distributed between 0 and 197 minutes.
The meeting starts at the time they meet.**

**What is the expected duration of any particular project
meeting?**

Answer #1

**SOLUTION:**

GIVEN THAT

John and Jane are working on a project, and all of their
project meetings are scheduled to start at 9:00. John always
arrives promptly at 9:00. Jane is highly disorganized and arrives
at a time that is uniformly distributed between 8:49 and 10:22. The
time (measured in minutes, a real number that can take fractional
values) between 8:49 and the time Jane arrives is thus a
continuous, uniformly distributed random variable.
If Jane arrives before 9:00, their project meeting will...

John and Jane are working on a project, and all of their
project meetings are scheduled to start at 9:05. John always
arrives promptly at 9:05. Jane is highly disorganized and arrives
at a time that is uniformly distributed between 8:33 and 10:31. The
time (measured in minutes, a real number that can take fractional
values) between 8:33 and the time Jane arrives is thus a
continuous, uniformly distributed random variable.

A worker leaves for work between 9:00am and 9:30am and takes
between 45 and 55 minutes to arrive. Let the random variable Y
denote this workerâ€™s time of departure, and the random variable X
the travel time. Assuming that Y and X are independent and
uniformly distributed, find the probability that the worker arrives
at work before 10:00am.

Arrival times. Imagine you live in ancient times, before
telephones. In each of the following, you plan to meet a friend,
and your arrival times are independent random variables. For each
situation, compute the probability you end up meeting each other.
(a) Each of you arrives at your meeting spot at an independent
uniformly distributed time between 8 and 9 pm, and wait for 20
minutes. (b) Each of you arrives at an independent exponentially
distributed time (with rate1/hour) after...
