Problem 5E

There are times when a shifted exponential model is appropriate. That is, let the pdf of X be (a) Define the cdf of X.

(b) Calculate the mean and variance of X.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 5E

Step1 of 3:

We have A Exponential random variable X with pdf We need to find,

(a) Define the cdf of X.

(b) Calculate the mean and variance of X.

Step2 of 3:

Let “X” be random variable which follows Exponential distribution with parameters .

That is X Exp( )

The probability mass function of binomial distribution is given below Where,

X = random variable = parameter = parameter

e = a constant it is approximately 2.7182.

a).

Consider,  To get a cdf of X we need to integrate above function with respect to x.

1).If X < then, = = 0.

2).If X then, = =  = [  = = = Hence, the cdf is given by Step3 of 3:

b).

Consider, To get mean and variance of X we need to integrate above function with respect to x. = = [ ]

= = = / = Hence,  . = = = -[0 - ]+ = + E(X)

= + [ ]

= +  Hence,  + Therefore, the variance of X is given by:

V(X) = - = + - = = Hence, V(X) = .

Conclusion:

a).The cdf is given by b).Variance Step 2 of 3

Step 3 of 3
