Go back and revise the basic definitions.Hi could I please get some urgent help with the following?
1) Let X be a continuous random variable with probability density function given by:
fX(x) = 2x^(−3) for x>=1
(a) Show that fX(x) is a valid density function.
Mr F says: Show that and for .
(b) Explain why fX(1) = 2 is an acceptable value for the density function when probabilities must be less than 1. Mr F says: does not represent a probability.
(c) Find the distribution function for X. Mr F says: Use the definition you will have in your class notes or textbook.
(f) Solve the equation FX(x) = 0.5 for x. What importance does this value have? Mr F says: Equate your answer to (c) to 0.5 and solve for x. This value of x is the median of X.
