Step 1 (a)

Consider a random variable X which represent time taken by mechanic to replace the clutch

The probability that the car will be ready in two hours can be calculated as:

Thus, the required probability is 0.97725.

Step 2 (b)

The probability that the car will be not be ready after 80 minutes can be calculated as:

Thus, the required probability is 0.7475.

Step 3

The probability that the car will be ready in 85 to 95 minutes can be calculated as:

So the probability is 0.2609.
