Im confused ive been looking for the kurtosis for the Laplace Distribution and im finding different values for it.Wikipedia states kurtosis is 3 then another site is saying its kurtosis is 6 and the kurtosis excess is 3,which one is correct?

Please define the pdf of the Laplace distribution.

Now give the definition of kurtosis.

Now .... can you calculate it?

(The definitions I use give 6).
