(c) What can be said about the probability that at least 550 widgets are made, assuming the mean is 500 and variance is 100? 3. Let X follow the exponential ( α,β ) distribution with pdf f ( x ) = 1 β e-( x-α ) /β for α < x < ∞ . Let Y = bX + a for some constants a and b with b > 0. Find the pdf of Y 1...
