The average time between incoming calls at a switchboard is 4.5 minutes. The probability of waiting less than t minutes for next incoming call is approximated by the model F(t) = 1 −e^-t/4.5 If a call has just come in, find the probability that the next call will come within a) .51minutes So do I just plug in .51 minutes in to t? If I do so I get a decimal and it doesn't seem right. Please help explain this.

as long as you get a number between zero and 1 it is a probability, and you would imagine that this one would not be too large because the average is 4.5
