To get strict inequalityfor somex, let (a,b] be an interval of length1-2withP(a < Zb) =F(b)-F(a)>0.Letx=a+1. ThenF(x|1)=F(x-1) =F(a+1-1) =F(a)< F(b) =F(a+1-2) =F(x-2) =F(x|2).b. Let1> 2. LetX1f(x/1) andX2f(x/2). LetF(z) be the cdf corresponding tof(z) and letZf(z). Then, forx >0,F(x|1)=P(X1x) =P(1Zx) =P(Zx/1) =F(x/1)F(x/2) =P(Zx/2) =P(2Zx) =P(X2x)=F(x|2).The inequality is becausex/2> x/1(becausex >0 and1> 2>0), andFisnondecreasing. Forx0,F(x|1) =P(X1x) = 0 =P(X2x) =F(x|2). Toget strict inequality for somex, let (a,b] be an interval such thata >0,b/a=1/2andP(a < Zb) =F(b)-F(a)>0. Letx=a1.
