## Homework Statement

i'm having trouble coming up with an equation for this problem

[/B]

Mulder and Scully agree to meet at the FBI lobby sometime within a period of N minutes (e.g. 40 minutes).

Each of them may show up anytime during that period (with a uniform distribution).

If Scully arrives and Mulder isn't there, she will wait for X minutes and then leave.

If Mulder arrives and Scully isn't there, he will wait for Y minutes and then leave.

Neither of them waits beyond the end of the N minutes period.

Write a function that gets , N X and Y and computes the probability that Alice and Bob meet. The

function's inputs will be:...

Plot your result for X=5, Y=7, 10<=N<=60.

## Homework Equations

that is the question

## The Attempt at a Solution

p =time^2-(1-t1)^2/2-(1-t2)^2/2[/B]

as time goes up exponentially the probability increases. as it does if their individual times increase.
