# Question: Find the probabilities that the value of a random variable

Find the probabilities that the value of a random variable will exceed 4 if it has a gamma distribution with

(a) α = 2 and β = 3;

(b) α = 3 and β = 4.

(a) α = 2 and β = 3;

(b) α = 3 and β = 4.

Show that a gamma distribution with α > 1 has a relative maximum at x = β(α – 1). What happens when 0 < α < 1 and when α = 1? Show that if v > 2, the chi-square distribution has a relative maximum at x = v – 2. What happens when v = 2 or 0 < v < 2? Verify the expression given for µ'2 in the proof of Theorem 6.5. If X is a random variable having a normal distribution with the mean µ and the standard deviation s, use the third part of Theorem 4.10 on page 128 and Theorem 6.6 to show that the moment– generating function of Z = X ...If the exponent of e of a bivariate normal density is –1/54 (x2 + 4y2 + 2xy+ 2x+ 8y+ 4) Find σ1, σ2, and ρ, given that µ1 = 0 and µ2 = –1.Post your question
