    that one got me too.

    ok for part
    (a) its uniform rectangular distribution and since its to the nearest cm its between (-0.5, 0.5). its error. remember an error difference to nearest measurment is between (-.5 and .5)

    i think that should help u for the rest. its the usual pdf. from there on.
    cheers
    all the best
