I'm stucked in two problems:
- Suppose that a 1-meter glass rod falls onto the floor and is broken into two pieces. Assume that the breaking point is uniform between 0 and 1 meter. What is the probability that the longer piece has length at least 0.6 meter?
I have solved this one but I don't think it's correct Please look at the picture. I draw a line x+y=1 and then find the area of where x>=6. And then solve the area of the trangle which is 1/2*0.4*0.4=0.08
- I solved i) but have no idea for ii). Please see picture attached. Question image
Thank you so much ahead!
