(a) Note that this is the pdf of a Beta(3 , 5) distribution, so that c = 1 B (3 , 5) = Γ(8) Γ(3)Γ(5) = 105. You can also find it by integrating the pdf as in problem 18(a). (b) Again, you can find it by integrating like in problem 22, but we know that for a Beta(3 , 5) distribution, E ( Y ) = 3 3+5 = 3 8 . 375. 32.
