    Exclamation Show X~Exponential has a Weibull distribution.

    Show X~Exponential has a Weibull distribution.

    I've been working on the problem since Friday and get nowhere fast. Can someone please show me how to do this without using any moments? (We have not covered moments in class.) This is the last problem on my assignment and I have to turn it in today.

    Thanks!

    Read this: Weibull distribution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. What do you get when k = 1?

    I'm not sure what the question is (once again).
    If you let k=1, in the Weibull from wiki you obtain the exponential distribution.
