    Easy question is driving me crazy.

    The time that the customers at a self serve check out stations at the Bi-Mo grocery store spend checking out ranges from 0 to 3 minutes. Waiting 3 minutes is jut as likely as waiting 0 minutes. What is the probability that customers will wait less than 1 percent.

    I have no idea why i cant find the answer.
