Need help with Uniform probability distribution

#1
Hey guys...

I'm sort of confused about these two problems. If you guys can help me out that would be great.

Problem: Suppose X is a random variable best describe by a uniform probability distribution with c=3 and d=5 . Find the following probabilities.

a) p(x<4)
b) p(x>2)

Thanks,

Hi! :welcome: We are glad that you posted here! This looks like a homework question though. Our homework help policy can be found here. We mainly just want to see what you have tried so far and that you have put some effort into the problem. I would also suggest checking out this thread for some guidelines on smart posting behavior that can help you get answers that are better much more quickly.

Also - I can make a guess that c is supposed to be the lower end of the support of the distribution and d is supposed to be the upper end but it would best if you clarified what your parameters mean.

for the a) i tried the following to get answer. Please do let me know if i'm correct.

a) (x<4)

P(4<x<5)
P(3<x<5)

(5-4)/(5-3)

ans: 1/2 or .5
