    thanks, but are you sure it's not x-po(0.25)

    and 1-(x>0)

    because they both give similar answers (difference of 0.005 i think)

    yes, it is supposed to be poisson... i dont know if your method is right but you do get the right answer.

    for sure, you will get the A1 mark. you will lose a mark for coverting into 0.25 and another for using x=0

    got 94. i know what i got wrong, there was a question where it tries to trick you by making a P(A|B) thing but i should have remembered that results are independent in a poisson.

    I checked. But only found a very poor version of it, which will not allow me to do the questions.

    Can someone help me with Question 3 on the June 2005 paper:

    A rod of length 2L was broken into 2 parts. The point at which the rod broke is equally likely to be anywhere along the rod. The length of the shorter piece of rod is represented by the random variable X.

    (a) Write down the name of the probability density function of X, and specify it fully.


    In the mark scheme it says Uniform Rectangular and I understood that.

    But then why does it say

    f(x) = { 1/L 0< X <= L
    0 otherwise

    Why are they saying 1/L? Where are they getting this from???
