Stat 400 Lecture 10 Spring 2012 Uniform distribution X has a uniform distribution on the interval [ a, b ] if X is equally likely to fall anywhere in the interval [ a, b ] . We write X U ( a, b ) . The p.d.f of X is f X ( x ) = 1 b - a if a x b 0 otherwise Distribution function F X ( x ) : F X ( x ) = 0 , if x < a, x - a b - a , if a x b, 1 , if x > b. Plot of f X ( x ) and F X ( x ) : 2 of 9

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
