Weightloss science question

  1. Aug 1, 2006 #1
    I'm not sure which forum to ask this statistic question.

    Here it is:

    Assume that the weight loss for the first month of a diet program varies between 6 pounds and 17 pounds, and is spread evenly over the range of possibilities, so that there is a uniform distribution. Find the probability of the given range of pounds lost.
    .
    Between 10.5 pounds and 12 pounds?

    which is the answer to this question.

    A) 1/3

    B) 1/2

    C) 1/4

    D) 3/4


    Thanks!
