# How are the mean and variance of an exponential random variable related? *requires integration by parts? More information is given in the picture but this is the question i am trying to answer. I really would appreciate clean handwriting in the answer as a lot of answers and variables are too difficult for me to follow help_outlineImage Transcriptionclosewhere 0 x < oo and 0> 0. e is a parameter of the exponential distribution, a fixed constant that controls the shape and variability of the probability density function. Note that each value of e generates a distinct exponential distribution The mean of a probability density function is referred to as its expected value. We can use the integral to calculate the expected value, denoted E(f) E(f)xf(x)dx The variance of a probability density function describes the variability of the distribution. The variance, denoted V(f), can also be calculated using the integral v) Ef2)-E) fullscreen
