Math 310-1 (Fall 2010) Name: Quiz #7 Time: 25 minutes 1. A continuous random variable X taking values in [ - 1 , 2] has a density function given by f X ( x ) = ( Cx 2 for x [ - 1 , 2] 0 otherwise where C is some constant. (a) Compute the constant C . (b) Find the distribution function F X . (c) Compute P (0 < X 1). (d) If Y = 2 X , find the distribution function F Y .
