Section 9 of the Actex manual, the distribution for each of the order statistics Y1-Yn is given as a formula, then an example (9-11) is given to illustrate its use, in which three exponentially distributed (with mean 1) variables are used to find the expectation of the second flight arriving, which is calculated at 5/6. I also did the first and third at 1/3 and 11/6 respectively.

I noted that 1/3 = mean/number of variables

5/6 = (2*mean-1/3)/2

11/6= (3*mean-1/3-5/6)/1

Is this a real pattern that can be generalized?
