ST561 Fall 2010 Homework 3 Due: Monday, Oct. 18th, 2010 1. Text Page 57, 1.6.3 2. Let f ( x ) be a p.d.f and let a be a number such that, for all ε > 0, f ( a + ε ) = f ( a - ε ). Such a p.d.f. is said to be symmetric about the point a . Show that if a random variable X has a p.d.f. which is symmetric about a , then the median of X equals to a . 3. Let X be distributed N ( μ,σ 2 ). Suppose the median of X is 50 and P ( X > 100) = 0 . 025. Can μ and σ be evaluated uniquely? If yes, find the values of μ
