Fx(x)= 0 , x<1 Fx(x)= (x^2-2x+2)/2 , 1<= x <2 Fx(x)=1, x>=2 calcualtae the variance of x. I drew the graph of this function. it is a mixed distribution with a point-mass at 1. But i dont know how to solve it.....

Almost (certainly, not). You're slipping, moo, you need the square. Originally Posted by Moo Hello, Find the pdf f of this function, by differentiating Then the variance is : This is the short cut formula for the variance. The definition is
