Let X1, X2, X3 be a random sample of size n = 3 from the exponential distribution with pdf f(x) = e−x, 0 < x < ∞. Find

P(1 < min Xi) = P(1 < X1, 1 < X2, 1 < X3)

P(1 < min Xi) = P(1 < X1, 1 < X2, 1 < X3)

Let X1, X2, X3 be independent random variables that represent lifetimes (in hours) of three key components of a device. Say their respective distributions are exponential with means 1000, 1500, and 2000. Let Y be the minimum ...Let X1 and X2 be a random sample of size n = 2 from the exponential distribution with pdf f(x) = 2e−2x, 0 < x < ∞. Find (a) P(0.5 < X1 < 1.0, 0.7 < X2 < 1.2). (b) E[X1(X2 − 0.5)2]. Let X1 and X2 have independent distributions b(n1, p) and b(n2, p). Find the mgf of Y = X1 + X2. How is Y distributed? Let T have a t distribution with r degrees of freedom. Show that E(T) = 0 provided that r ≥ 2, and Var(T) = r/(r − 2) provided that r ≥ 3, by first finding E(Z), E(1/√U), E(Z2), and E(1/U). Let Y = X1 + X2 + · · · + X15 be the sum of a random sample of size 15 from the distribution whose pdf is f(x) = (3/2)X2, −1 < x < 1. Using the pdf of Y, we find that P(−0.3 ≤ Y ≤ 1.5) = 0.22788.
