Solving Task Using Exponential DistributionSolving Task Using Exponential Distribution


The average waiting time for a passing car on a rural road is 10 minutes. What is the probability of waiting more than 15 minutes for the next car if you have just seen another car?

We can solve this task using an exponential distribution. You have to:

  1. Calculate the probability of waiting less than 15 minutes
  2. Calculate the probability of waiting for the car for more than 15 minutes, taking into account the fact that the sum of the probabilities of all elementary outcomes is always equal to 1

Everything was clear?
