Question

suppose that x is a continuos randoms variable with pdf given by
f(x) = x^{3} / 4 for 0 less than or equal to x less than or
equal to 2. Consider random variables defined by function Y= square
root of x

1) what is the support of y?

2) graph y as a function of x

3) give pdf of y

4) what is expected value of y

Answer #1

**1)**

The support of x is [0,2]

Thus, the support of y is the interval :

**2)**

The graph of y as a function of x is given by:

**3)**

The cdf of y is given by:

Thus, the pdf is given by:

**4)**

The expected value of y is :
