Unformatted text preview: X takes on certain values, we use a probability density function , f ( x ) , satisfying the following conditions: 1. f ( x ) 0 for all real x . 2. The area under the graph of f ( x ) over ( , ) is exactly 1. 3. If [ c , d ] is a subset of ( , ) , then P ( c X d ) = Example 2: A manufacturer guarantees a product for one year. The time to failure of a product after it is sold is given by the probability density function f ( t ) = ( . 01 e. 01 t if t otherwise where t is in months. What is the probability that a buyer chosen at random will have a product failure: a) During the warranty period? b) During the second year after purchase?
