Do not square that number. Double it!
Goodmorning MHF!
New day, new questions...
Thanks in advance for all the help you are giving me.
Now the question:
There is a stretch of river 4 miles long. Uniform continuos distribution.
X denotes the distance in miles of an emergency from the point zero of this stretch of river. The density function is
.25 for 0<x<4
0 otherwise
The rescue team base is at the midpoint of this stretch of river. Find the probability that a given emergency arises more than 1.5 miles away from this base.
-----
I did F(4)- F(3.5) and then I thought I could square becasue the emergency can happen from one side or the other independently. But the result is not that on the book.
Thank you a lot.
