# Verifying a Probability Density Function In Exercises 1-6, show that the function is a probability density function over the given interval. See Examples 1 and 2. f ( x ) = 2 x ,    [ 0 , 1 ]

To determine

To prove: The function, f(x)=2x is a probability density function over the interval [0,1].

Explanation

Given Information:

The function, f(x)=2x over the interval [0,1].

Proof:

Consider the function, f(x)=2x.

A function f of a continuous random variables x whose set of values is the interval [a,b]. The function is a probability density function when it is non-negative and continuous on the interval [a,b] and when

abf(x)dx=1

f(x)=2x being the linear function is non-negative and continuous over the interval [0,1]

Now, evaluate abf(x)dx as,
