Hey guys, here's a problem I'm stuck on:
The lifetime of X (years) has pdf:
f(x) = 2x/(theta²) *e^ -(x/theta)² , when... 0<x<infinity
If P(X>5) = 0.01, determine theta.
--------------
So I thought, P(x>5) = 1-P(x<5)
so, 1- integral (from 0-->5) f(x) = 0.01
Is this the right logic? If so, the problem becomes evaluating that integral.
Can someone help me? It's been two years since Calculus, and I'd appreciate it.
