## Identifying Probability Density Functions In Exercises 25-30, use a graphing utility to graph the function. Then determine whether the function f represents a probability density function over the given interval. If f is not a probability density function, identify the condition(s) that is (are) not satisfied. f ( x ) = 1 14 ,        [ 1 , 14 ]

To determine

To graph: The function f(x)=114 using a graphing utility and determine whether the function f(x)=114 represents a probability density function over the interval [1,14].

### Explanation of Solution

Given Information:

The function f(x)=114 over the interval [1,14].

Graph:

Consider the provided function f(x)=114.

Use the ti-83 graphing calculator to construct the graph of the function.

Step 1: Open the ti-83 graphing calculator.

Step 2: Press [y=] and enter the function Y1=114.

Step 3: Press the [window] key and adjust the scale.

Xmin=0Xmax=14Xscl=1

And,

Ymin=0Ymax=214Yscl=0.01

Step 4: Press the [graph] key.

The bar graph of the function f(x)=114 is obtained as,

Consider the provided function f(x)=114 over the interval [1,14].

A function f of a continuous random variable x in the interval [a,b] is a probability density function if it is nonnegative and continuous on the interval [a,b].

And,

abf(x) dx=1

The provided function is a constant function and so the function f is continuous and nonnegative for all values on the interval [1,14].

Now, show that abf(x) dx=1
