Question: two people trying to meet arrive at times independently and...

Question details

Two people, trying to meet, arrive at times independently and uniformly distributed between noon and 1pm. Find the expected length of time that the first waits for the second.Apply the bottom formula on P2.8. If we measure time in hours starting from noon, then each arrival time is uniformly distributed in [0,1], so the joint density of the two arrival times (X,Y) is f(x,y) = 1 for 0 sx S1,0 sys 1. How to express the waiting time g(x, y) in terms of x and yi?Here is the "bottom formula"

If (X, Y) are continuous with density f then CX) Eg(X, Y) g(x, y)f(x, y)drdy CO
