Question

Martian potatoes begin to sprout very quickly after planting. Suppose X is the number of days after planting until a Martian potato sprouts. Then X has the following probability density function: f(x)=

2/7e^{−x} |

3/14e^{−x/2} |

1/14e^{−x/4} |

for

0 ≤ x ≤ ∞

and 0 otherwise.

a)What is the probability that a Martian potato takes no more than 4 days to sprout?

b) What is the probability that X >4?

c) What is the probability that 2< X < 4?

d) What is the expected value of X (E(X))?

e) What is the expected value of

X^{2}

?

f) What is the variance of X?

g) What is the standard deviation of X?

h) What is the probability that X is more than 2 standard deviations above its expected value?

i) What is the expected value of

X^{4}

?

j) What is the probability that X is within 1 standard deviation of its expected value?

k) What is the probability that X = .6?
