MA206 Suggested Problems Cumulative Distribution Functions 1. Answer the following questions based on the CDF below: a. What does the probability density function (PDF) for the following cumulative distribution function (CDF) look like and why? Sketch the PDF on the CDF above. b. Approximately 50% of the observations will be less than what x- value? c. Approximately 75% of the observations will be less than what x- value? 2. What can you say about the probability mass over the domain of the PDF (what is it equal to and why)? 3. What is the range for all CDFs? Why?

    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.
