Since 10 observations are independent and are identically distributed from the chisquare(df =19), the random variable W (the number out of 10 observations that exceed 30.14) is Bin(n=10,p=.05). Therefore, P(W = 2) = .9885  .9139 = .0746. 2. 3.5 9 (9 points 3 points for each part) (a) If we set 1 = 0 or 2 = 1, < < = = x e e x f and e x F x x e x e , ) ( 1 ) ( y = e x so y > 0 and x = g(y) = lny. g(y) = 1/y < < = = = y e y ye y e e y f y y e y y , 1 1 ) ( ln ln Therefore Y has an exponential distribution with the parameter = 1.
