Fix $n\geq 4.$ Suppose there is a particle that moves randomly on the number line, but never leaves the set $\{1,2,\dots,n\}.$ Let the initial probability distribution of the particle be denoted by $\overrightarrow{\pi}.$ In the first step, if the particle is at position $i,$ it moves to one ... $i\neq 1$ $\overrightarrow{\pi}(n) = 1$ and $\overrightarrow{\pi}(i) = 0$ for $i\neq n$

After your complaint about their service, a representative of an insurance company promised to call you "between $7$ and $9$ this evening." Assume that this means that the time $T$ of the call is uniformly distributed in the specified interval. (c) Assume that you know in advance ... . Let $M$ be the amount of time of the show that you miss because of th call. Compute the expected value of $M$.

Two friends agree to meet at a park with the following conditions. Each will reach the park between 4:00 pm and 5:00 pm and will see if the other has already arrived. If not, they will wait for 10 minutes or the end of the hour whichever is earlier and leave. What is the probability that the two will not meet?
