I'm rubbish at probability, well, probably!

It looks like you've done all the calculations. What is the total probability of arriving late in London? There are two paths that lead to that, so I'd add those probabilities.

The question is: How many cars are under £4000 in Peter's garage?

If you look at the box plot, you'll see that £4000 corresponds to the lower-end of the box. What does that tell you?

If you need some help on reading box plots, this looks good.

Does that mean John's garage has more cars than Peters or something along those lines?

Part (d) is just about Peter's garage.

The box in the box plot encloses the middle 50% of the population. The £4000 value corresponds to the lower side of the box, so what proportion of the cars are below that value? Once you know that, you can calculate the number of cars below £4000.

LQ- £4000
The proportion of the cars that are below £4000 are 8.

What fraction of the cars are in the (price) lower quartile? It's quartile, as in quarter.

4000/4*1 = 1000

£4000 is the price - Peter has 240 cars, with a quarter of them below £4000, as that's the lower quartile price.

We're told that Peter has 240 cars. From the box plot, a quarter are under £4000, so that's 240/4 = 60 cars under £4000.
