Hello every body I have an arena simulation HW and I got stuck on this part:
"Since each driver fills different amount of gas, therefore the net profit is not fixed, it has continuous values between 10 \$ to 30\$. it follows a probability distribution that is 10\$ for 40% of the cars, the other 40% is 25\$. and the last 20% is 30\$"
The question is how to make a continuous values between 10 and 30.
Plz help.

What do you mean "make"? Do you want to pick a random number? what distribution? what's the problem? Language, platform? libraries you use, other relevant detail? —SA

The problem is contradictory. The problem states that 40% have the value 10\$, 40% have the value 25\$ and 20% have the value 40\$ -- that's a total of 100%. There aren't any other values in the problem except those three discrete values. The value is not "continuous". It has only 1 of 3 discrete values. Do you know how to represent that int your simulation system?

This is the problem I know how to represent one value but representing 3 values is the problem.

Without knowing anything about your simulation system, that's kind of hard for us to answer. Is this simulation software something you've written yourself, or are you using an existing simulation library/package of some kind? This is a pretty basic thing and ought to be covered in the documentation of the library/package you are using.
