To nd the probability P ( Y y ) the command in R is pbeta(y,alpha,beta) 1 To fnd the value oF y so that P ( Y y ) = p the command in R is qbeta(p,alpha,beta) To generate observations From a beta distribution the command in R is rbeta(numobs,alpha,beta) where numobs is the number oF observations you would like to generate. 2...
