Suppose Y_1,..., Y_n is a random sample where the density of each random variable Y_i is f(y) = 2*x^2*y^(-3), y >= 0 for some parameter x > 1. Find the first order statistic, Y_(1).
show your work and we can better answer your question
y goes from zero to infinity, x is a fixed constant.
this is NOT a valid density
MY guess is that y is bounded below by x, clearly it is not bounded below by 0.
