Pg 228 Question #2 We first need to determine the value of c in the density of X. 1 0 2 = - dx xe c x (1) To solve the above integral we need to employ “integration by parts”: 2 2 2 4 2 x x x e xe dx xe - - - - - = (2) So from (1) and (2), we get that c = 0.25. P{X > 5} = 0.25 + = - - - 2 5 2 5 5 2 4 10 4 1 4 1 e e dx xe x = 14/4 * exp{-5/2} ≈ 0.2873. 2

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
