Since when x-> +∞, F(x)=1, we have C=1, Hence, ²(G) = { 0 G ≤ 0 1 − ± −G G > 0 4-36 The probability density function of the weight of packages delivered by a post office is g(G) = 70/(69G ¾ ) for 1 < G < 70 pounds. (a) Determine the mean and the variance of weight. (b) If the shipping cost is \$2.50 per pound, what is the average shipping cost of a package? (c) Determine the probability that the weight of a package exceeds 50 pounds. (a)
