1) Verify f(x) = (2x)/(k(k+1)) for x = 1,2,3,...,k can serve as the probability distribution function of a random variable with the given range.
I know this has to satisfy two parts. I got the first part, where for each value in the domain, f(x) >= 0. I am having trouble with the part where the sum has to equal 1. How do I show this?
