    probability = (length of RU)/(length of NT)

    distance is positive, so 14-10 = 4 now find the distance between N and T

    right, now we can go back to our original equation probability = (length of RU)/(length of NT) = ?

    right, depending on how they want the answer, you can put in 0.2 or 20%
