# A distribution that has been used to model tolerance levels in bioassays is the logisticdistribution with parameters a and ß. The cumulative distribution function of the logisticdistribution isF(x) = [1+e--a)/The parameter a may be any real number; the parameter B may be any positive number. LetX be a random variable with this distribution.Find the probability density function fx(x).a.Show that fx(x) is symmetric around a, that is, fy(« – x) = f;(a +x) forall x.b.Explain why the symmetry described in part (b) shows that µx = a. You may assumeC.that µy exists.
