Let X denote the distance (m) that an animal moves fromits birth site to the first territorial vacancy it encounters.Suppose that for banner-tailed kangaroo rats, X has anexponential distribution with parameter l 5 .01386 (assuggested in the article Competition and Dispersalfrom Multiple Nests, Ecology, 1997: 873883).a. What is the probability that the distance is at most100m? At most 200 m? Between 100 and 200 m?b. What is the probability that distance exceeds themean distance by more than 2 standard deviations?c. What is the value of the median distance?
