# Math Help - non central t distribution

1. ## non central t distribution

I have been very stuck with this problem.

tv(d) is non central t distribution with v degrees of freedom and non centrality parameter d

show for fixed x, P[|tv(d)|>x] is strictly increasing in |d|

2. Hi,

Chernoff's (or maybe Chebychev's) inequality will help you here.

3. yes, this looks a little bit like a chebychev's inequality but I don't see putting a bound on the function is gong to help proving it is increasing in |d|.
