For each of them you have to wait at the bus stop some time $\displaystyle$\tau_{i}$=1,2,...,n$. In each case, the probability that a bus arrives in a time interval [t, t + dt) is equal to rdt, independently for each interval of time. Let T be the total time you have to wait for buses. What is the probability density function (pdf) of T?
