Question

Suppose the wait time for dino nuggets to be microwaved is uniformly distributed from 5 minutes to 12 minutes.

(a) Is the wait time for dino nuggets to be done in the microwave a discrete or a continuous random variable?

(b) What is the probability we have to wait between 8 to 10 minutes for the nuggets to be done?

(c) what is the probability that we have to wait exactly 6 minutes?

I'm having a hard time understanding how to calculate this type of question.

Answer #1

Suppose the wait time for bus is uniformly distributed from 0 to
20 minutes.
If you look at the average wait times for 50 person samples,
what type of distribution would the sample means follow
approximately?
What would be the mean of the sample means?
What would be the standard deviation of the sample
means?

The amount of time, in minutes, that a person must wait
for a bus is uniformly distributed between 0 and 15 minutes,
inclusive.
1. What is the average time a person must wait for a
bus?
2. What is the probability that a person waits 12.5
minutes or less?

The amount of time, in minutes, that a person must wait for a
taxi is uniformly distributed between 1 and 30 minutes,
inclusive.

2.Find the mean.
3.Find the standard deviation.
4.What is the probability that a person waits fewer than 5
minutes.
5.What is the probability that a person waits more than 21
minutes.
6.What is the probability that a person waits exactly 5
minutes.

The amount of time, in minutes, that a person must wait for a
bus is uniformly distributed between zero and 20 minutes,
inclusive.
What is the probability that a person waits fewer than 13.5
minutes?
On the average, how long must a person wait? Find the mean, μ,
and the standard deviation, σ.
Find the 40th percentile. Draw a graph.

The average wait time at a McDonald's drive-through window is
about three minutes ("The Doctor Will See You Eventually," The
Wall Street Journal, October 18, 2010). Suppose the wait time
is exponentially distributed. What is the probability that a
randomly selected customer will have to wait no more than five
minutes?

1. Assume the waiting time at the BMV is uniformly distributed
from 10 to 60 minutes, i.e. X ∼ U ( 10 , 60 )X ∼ U ( 10 , 60 )
What is the expected time waited (mean), and standard deviation
for the above uniform variable?
1B) What is the probability that a person at the BMV waits
longer than 45 minutes?
1C) What is the probability that an individual waits between 15
and 20 minutes, OR 35 and...

3. the time required for a student to complete the exam is
uniformly distributed with a minimum time of 85 minutes and a
maximum time of 125 minutes.
Is this an example of discrete or a continuous uniform
probability distribution? Please explain
Please depict this probability distribution in some appropriate
manner
Please determine the probability that a randomly selected
student requires less than 112 minutes to complete the exam. Show
work
Please determine the probability that a randomly selected
student...

The wait time for phone calls to the IRS is exponentially
distributed with an average of 15 minutes. What is the probability
that when you call in, you have to wait more than 8 minutes? Round
to the nearest tenth of a percent.

Time T to complete a quiz in class is uniformly distributed from
7 minutes to 14 minutes. (a) Write the pdf and sketch it f(t) =
Graph of pdf f(t) What is the probability that a randomly
selected student takes (b) no more than 9 minutes? (c) between 10
to 14 minutes? (d) Find the mean time µT = (e) Find the variance σ

Assume that you have a continuous random variable which is
uniformly distributed in the range: [3,8] . What is the probability
that the random variable takes on a value less than or equal to
7?
