Verify that f X satisfies the normalization condition, and evaluate the mean and variance of X . 2. Consider a traingle and a point chosen within the triangle according to the uniform probability law. Let X be the distance from the point to the base of the triangle. Given the height of the triangle, find the CDF and the PDF of X . 3. Consider two continuous random variables Y and Z , and a random variable X that is equal to Y with probability p and Z with probability 1 p . (a) Show that the PDF of X is given by f X ( x ) = pf Y ( x ) + (1 p ) f Z ( x ) . (b) Calculate the CDF of the twosided exponential random variable that has PDF given by f X ( x ) = braceleftBigg pe x , if x < , (1 p ) e x , if x , where > 0 an 0 < p < 1. 4. Let X be a random variable with probability density function f ( x ) = braceleftBigg c ( 1 x 2 ) 1 < x < 1 otherwise ....
