Consider a continuous random variable X with the following pdf f X ( x ): f X ( x ) = ( 3 e - 3 x if x [0 , ) 0 otherwise A discrete “quantizer” Y of X is as follows. For any X , if 1 . 5 k X < 1 . 5( k + 1), then Y = k . For example, if the X value is π , then Y = 2 since 1 . 5 × 2 π < 1 . 5 × 3. If the X value is - 1 . 1, then Y = - 1. Find the pmf of the discrete variable Y . Namely, find P ( Y = k ). What type of random variables is Y ? Question 2: What is the sample space of a geometric distribution? Plot the generalized pdf of a geometric distribution with parameters p = 2 / 3. (The range of your horizontal
