ACTIVITY G: Continuous Probability Distributions
1. The data records the length of stay of engineering students in the university. We will assume a uniform distribution between 5 to 7 years, inclusive. What is the probability that a randomly chosen engineering student will stay at most 6 years?

Step 1
Given:
The range of uniform distribution is between 5 to 7 years.
The objective is to find the probability of randomly chosen student who will stay at most 6 years.
Step 2 The formula to find the required probability is,
\(\displaystyle{P}{\left({X}\leq{6}\right)}={\frac{{{x}-{a}}}{{{b}-{a}}}}\)
Here, a, b stands for lower limit and upper limit.
From the given data, \(\displaystyle{a}={5}\) and \(\displaystyle{b}={7}\)
Now substitute the obtained values in the formula of probability.
\(\displaystyle{P}{\left({X}\leq{6}\right)}={\frac{{{6}-{5}}}{{{7}-{5}}}}\)
\(\displaystyle={\frac{{{1}}}{{{2}}}}\)
\(\displaystyle={0.5}\)
Hence, the probability of randomly chosen student who will stay at most 6 years is 0.5.
