    Probability of video server transmitting

    A youtube server transmits video at an average rate of 1.5 Mbps and at a peak rate of 4.5 Mbps. What is the probability that at a particular instance it is transmitting?

    Would greatly appreciate advise.

    As a follow-up to my question above, I have obtained the following pointer in the direction of the answer:

    Pr(server is transmitting) = Average rate of transmission / Peak rate of transmission
    => 1.5 / 4.5
    = .33 or 33 per cent

    If someone could attempt to reason the above, I'd greatly appreciate it.

    Look forward to a response.
