use the complement, let M be the min
now if the min exceeds the value, y, they all do...
using independence
now differentiate and you have
finally plug in your density/distribution.
show your work and we can better answer your question
y goes from zero to infinity, x is a fixed constant.
NEVERMIND
this is NOT a valid density
MY guess is that y is bounded below by x, clearly it is not bounded below by 0.
Ok, so when I integrate (2*x^2*y^(-3)) with respect to y I get -(x^2/y^2) and plugging in the bounds of x to infinity, I get 0 - (-1) = 1. But this can't be right because then the entire pdf for the order statistic ends up equaling 0. Would I just use the indefinite integral of the pdf -(x^2/y^2) as my cdf and plug that in for the cdf found in the equation for the first order statistic that you listed above?
