Suppose the proportion X of surface area in a randomly selected quadrat that is covered by a certain plant has a standard beta distribution with α = 5 and β = 4.
(a) Compute E(X) and V(X). (Round your answers to four decimal places.)
E(X) = | |
V(X) = |
(b) Compute P(X ≤ 0.4). (Round your answer to
four decimal places.)
(c) Compute P(0.4 ≤ X ≤ 0.8). (Round your answer
to four decimal places.)
(d) What is the expected proportion of the sampling region not
covered by the plant? (Round your answer to four decimal
places.)
Answer:
a)
Given,
f(x) = 1/() *x^-1 (1-x)^-1
Mean = / (+)
substitute values
= 5 / (5+4)
= 5/9
= 0.5555
Variance = / (+)^2*( + + 1)
= 20 / (9^2*(10))
= 0.0247
d)
Now the expected proportion of the sampling region not covered by the plant = 1 - E(X)
= 1 - 5/9
= 0.4444
Post the remaining two bits as separate post. Thank you.
