Rough explanation of where the expression in b comes from:

 

 Continuous mean 1,

 continuous mean 2.

 

I should have noted that wk goes to w(x)dx in passing from the discrete to the continuous (so "mass" goes to "mass per unit length"*"(infinitesimal) length"; with "mass per unit length" being "density").

Hi Alan,

I have not seen probability dealt with like this before.

I can understand part A and it sort of makes sense to me I think.

 

I am trying to work out the mathematical logic of what you have done it part b.

I get a glimmer of understanding but then it goes again.  Can you help me to understand this?

Thank you.

Thanks Alan, I will really have to think about this one.
