    Answer: 0.75

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given : Interval for uniform distribution : [0 minute, 5 minutes]

    The probability density function will be :-

    f(x)=\dfrac{1}{5-0}=\dfrac{1}{5}=0.2\ \ ,\ 0<x<5

    The probability that a given class period runs between 50.75 and 51.25 minutes is given by :-

    P(x>1.25)=\int^{5}_{1.25}f(x)\ dx\\\\=(0.2)[x]^{5}_{1.25}\\\\=(0.2)(5-1.25)=0.75

    Hence,  the probability that a randomly selected passenger has a waiting time greater than 1.25 minutes = 0.75
