Consider the general reaction 
aA+bBcC 
and the following data on average rates for a particular time frame 
At=0.0080 mol L1s1 
Bt=0.0120 mol L1s1 
Ct=0.0160 mol L1s1 
To balance this overall reaction, identify a range of potential coefficients.

1aAt=1bBt=1cCt
1a×0.0080 molL1s1=1b×0.0120 molL1s1=1c×0.0160 molL1s1
b=0.01200.0080=1.5
c=0.01600.0080=2
After that we have to multiply everything by 2 due to the fact reaction coefficients must be whole numbers.
a=1×2=2
b=1.5×2=3
c=2×2=4

Jones figures that the total number of thousands of miles that a used auto can be driven before it would need to be junked is an exponential random variable with parameter 120.
Smith has a used car that he claims has been driven only 10,000 miles.
If Jones purchases the car, what is the probability that she would get at least 20,000 additional miles out of it?
Repeat under the assumption that the lifetime mileage of the car is not exponentially distributed but rather is (in thousands of miles) uniformly distributed over (0, 40).
