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?

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.

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.
