Problem 24E

Let the random variable X be equal to the number of days that it takes a high-risk driver to have an accident. Assume that X has an exponential distribution. If P(X < 50) = 0.25, compute P(X > 100 |X > 50).

Step-by-Step Solution:

Given P(X<50)=0.25

Here we have to compute the value of P(X>100/X>50)

The pmf of exponential distribution is P(x)=,    0x<

Step 1 of 2

P(X>100/X>50)=

=

=

=

=

=e(-100+50)/

=e-50/

=P(X> 50)
