the probability density fucntion (pdf) of X is
The cumulative distribution fucntion (cdf) of X is
1.Find P(x<10 | x<22).
ans: P(x<10 | x<22) = 3/7 (or 0.4286)
2.Find the 60th percentile.
Let q be the 60th percentile. That is, 60% of the observations are below q. This means that the probability of X<q is 0.60
ans: The 60th percentile is 18.4
