k/32 (x^2) x is less than or equal to 0 and x<2

3/32 (6-x) x is less than or equal to 2 and x is greater or equal to 6.

The question is what is the value of k? - April 30th 2013, 02:12 PMHallsofIvyRe: Can anyone help?
If you are serious then you have real problems. There is no reason why "k" cannot have any value at all or even "no" value.

Now if the problem were to "find the value of k such that the function defined is continuous" then there would be one unique value for k.

Does the problem say anything about "cotinuous"? Do you know what "continuous" means? - April 30th 2013, 02:27 PMwrexlive1Re: Can anyone help?
yes this is a continuous random variable
