To nd the probability P ( Y y ) the command in R is pgamma(y, shape = alpha, scale = beta) 1 To fnd the value oF y such that P ( Y y ) = p the command in R is qgamma(p, shape = alpha, scale = beta) To generate observations From a gamma distribution the command in R is rgamma(numobs, shape = alpha, scale = beta) where numobs is the number oF observed values you would like to generate. 2...
