For the hierarchical model Y |Λ ∼ Poisson(Λ) and Λ ∼ Gamma(α,
β), find the marginal distribution, mean, and variance of Y . Show
that the marginal distribution of Y is a negative binomial if α is
an integer. (b) Show that the three-stage model Y|N∼Binomial(N,p),
N|Λ∼Poisson(Λ), andΛ∼Gamma(α,β) leads to the same marginal
distribution of Y .

Let X ∼ Beta(α, β).
(a) Show that EX 2 = (α + 1)α (α + β + 1)(α + β) .
(b) Use the fact that EX = α/(α + β) and your answer to the
previous part to show that Var X = αβ (α + β) 2 (α + β + 1).
(c) Suppose X is the proportion of free-throws made over the
lifetime of a randomly sampled kid, and assume that X ∼ Beta(2,

Please need correct answer for a test.

Suppose that Y has a gamma distribution with α = n/2 for some
positive integer n and β equal to some specified value. Use the
method of moment-generating functions to show that W = 2Y/β has a
χ2 distribution with n degrees of freedom. (Please show all work,
proof used, and logic to justify the answer. Thank, you)

The lifespan of a system component follows a Weibull
distribution with α (unknown) and β=1. (hint: start with confidence
interval for μ)
f(x)=αβX^(β-1) exp(-αX^β)
a. Derive 92% large sample confidence interval for α.
b. Find maximum likelihood estimator of α.

The lifetime of a part follows a gamma distribution with a mean
lifetime of 2 years and a variance of 5 years squared. what is the
probability that a random part dies within the first 3 years?

The special case of the gamma distribution in which α is a
positive integer n is called an Erlang distribution. If we replace
β by 1 λ in the expression below, f(x; α, β) = 1 βαΓ(α) xα − 1e−x/β
x ≥ 0 0 otherwise the Erlang pdf is as follows. f(x; λ, n) = λ(λx)n
− 1e−λx (n − 1)! x ≥ 0 0 x < 0 It can be shown that if the times
between successive events are...
