Consider the following exponential probability density function.

f ( x ) = 1 3 e x / 3       f o r   x 0

  1. a. Write the formula for P(xx0).
  2. b. Find P(x ≤ 2).
  3. c. Find P(x ≥ 3).
  4. d. Find P(x ≤ 5).
  5. e. Find P(2 ≤ x ≤ 5).

a.

To determine

Find the formula for P(xx0).

Explanation of Solution

Calculation:

The variable x follows exponential probability distribution. The exponential probability density function is,

f(x)=13ex/3  for x0.

The cumulative probability density function is,

P(xx0)

b.

To determine

Compute the value of P(x2).

c.

To determine

Compute the value of P(x3).

d.

To determine

Compute the value of P(x5).

e.

To determine

Compute the value of P(2x5).
