(a) (b) ( ) 1 , a U ( ) a U , 0 3. (a) From the definition of , we know that 1 F ( ) ( ) u u F F 1 for all . Since F is a non-decreasing function, we have ( 1 , 0 u ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) x F u x F u F F x u F 1 1 (as ( ) ( ) u u F F 1 ) On the other hand, since ( ) u F 1 is the minimum x such that , therefore if then ( ) u x F ( ) u x F x must be greater than or equal to ( ) u F 1 , i.e. ( ) ( ) u F x F 1 x u . (b) The distribution function of X is given by ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) x F x F U P x U F P x X P x F X = = = = 1 . (c) Distribution function of ( ) λ Exp is ( ) x e x F λ = 1 , . Therefore 0 > x ( ) { } ( ) ( ) u u x x u e x u F x x x = = = 1 log 1 1 log 1 : min 1 : min 1 λ λ λ Procedure to generate a random variable from ( ) λ Exp : [1] Generate ( ) . 1 , 0 ~ U U [2] Compute ( ) U X = 1 log 1 λ . 4. 97 5. 0.1719 6. 5 . 0 > p 7.
