Quiz 6. October 13, 2010 Seat # _________ Name: _________________________ Closed book and notes. No calculator. Consider the probability density function f X ( y ) = 0.1 for 0 y c and zero elsewhere. 1. (2 pt) Show that c = 10. ____________________________________________________________ Set 1 = −∞ f X ( y ) dy = 0 c (0.1) dy = 0.1 c and solve for c . ____________________________________________________________ 2. (2 pt) Determine the value of f X (5.6). ____________________________________________________________ Because 0 5.6 c , immediately f X (5.6) = 0.1 ____________________________________________________________ 3. (2 pt) Determine the value of E( X ). ____________________________________________________________ E( X ) = −∞ y f X ( y ) dy = 0 10 y (0.1) dy = 5 ____________________________________________________________ 4.
