number of shoes in the dumpster so Pr[X=9]=0.
To do these last parts we need to know what you know(b.) Find an expression in terms of Y for each of the following:
(i) Pr[X=40] (ii) Pr[X<40] (iii) Pr[X>36]
(c.) If Pr[Y>21] = 1-Pr[X<k], what is the value of k?
about the description of probabilities of continuous random variables.
Are you familiar with the distribution function (aka the cumulative distribution)?
Or the probability density function?
