a random variable X has a distribution ae^(-ax), Let [x] denote the greatest integer function applied to the real number ?, that is, the largest integer among those not exceeding ?.
What is the correct expression for the expected value of ? =[x]? the answer should involve a
- The questioner was satisfied and accepted the answer, or
- The answer was disputed, but the judge evaluated it as 100% correct.
how did you get (e^(a) -1)e^(-a(w+1)) actually?
It's the derivative of 1−e ^(−a(w+1)). Chain rule.
if you simplify 1-e^(-aw-a) to 1-(e^-aw)(e^-a) then the derivative with respect to w is (ae^(-aw))(e^-a) right? says the same thing on symbolab https://www.symbolab.com/solver/step-by-step/%5Cfrac%7B%5Cpartial%7D%7B%5Cpartial%20x%7D%5Cleft(1-e%5E%7B-ax-a%7D%5Cright)?or=input
You’re right. I realized you can just find the PMF directly with an integral. I’ve edited my answer.
