Expert Answer

Step 1

Note:

Hey there! Thank you for the question. As you have posted a question with more than 3 sub-parts, as per our policy, we have solved the first 3 sub-parts for you. If you need help with the other one, please re-post the question and mention it.

Step 2

(a)

The random variable (X ­– 5.5) is a 2-parameter Weibull distribution, with parameters α = 2, and β = 1.5. Thus, the random variable X is a 3-parameter Weibull distribution, with parameters α = 2, β = 1.5, and γ = 5.5.

The probability distribution function (pdf) and cumulative distribution function (cdf) of this distribution are given below:

Step 3

(b)

The expectation and variance for the 2-parameter Weibull distribution are:
