The life X, in hours, of a certain kind of radio tube has a probability density function given by fX(y) = 0 for y <100 and 100/y2 for y100.

3. The life X, in hours, of a certain kind of radio tube has a probability density function given by
fX(y) = 0 for y <100 and 100/y2 for y≥100.
a) What is the probability that a tube will survive 250 hours of operation?
b) Find the expected value of the random variable.

2. Let X be a discrete random variable, with probability distribution P(X = x1) = 0.25 and P(X = x2) = 0.75. Determine x1 and x2 such that E(X) = 10 and Var (X) = 48.
