Answer:1/3

Step-by-step explanation:Range of data set: 12 – 6 = 6

Given that there is a uniform distribution:

P(6<x<7) = 1/6

P(7<x<8) = 1/6

P(8<x<9) = 1/6

P(9<x<10) = 1/6

P(10<x<11) = 1/6

P(11<x<12) = 1/6

where x is weight loss

Probability that weight loss is more than 10 pounds:

P(10<x<11) + P(11<x<12) = 1/6 + 1/6 = 1/3
