I have come across two forum about expected distance between two points and found seemingly conflicting results. Which one is correct? If they are two different ways of saying the same thing, can anyone help to explain?
These two discussions are:
What is the expected distance between these two points? --> The result is L/4 (means 1/4 if the length is 1).
Average Distance Between Random Points on a Line Segment --> The result is 1/3 because the discussion is focus on [0,1].
