Question

Let X be an exponential random variable with parameter λ > 0. Find the probabilities P( X > 2/ λ ) and P(| X − 1 /λ | < 2/ λ) .

Answer #1

Suppose that X|λ is an exponential random variable with
parameter λ and that λ|p is geometric with parameter p. Further
suppose that p is uniform between zero and one. Determine the pdf
for the random variable X and compute E(X).

A random variable XX with distribution
Exponential(λ)Exponential(λ) has the memory-less
property, i.e.,
P(X>r+t|X>r)=P(X>t) for all r≥0 and
t≥0.P(X>r+t|X>r)=P(X>t) for all r≥0 and t≥0.

exponential distribution with a mean of 3 min3 min. Suppose a
customer has spent 2.5 min2.5 min with a postal clerk. What is the
probability that he or she will spend at least an additional 2 min2
min with the postal clerk?
