Chebyshev's theorem problemFor the exponential density f(x) = 3e^3x, compute the actual probability for k=3 and k=4. Last edited by genericname (20121105 05:27:59) #2 20121105 05:34:32

Re: Chebyshev's theorem problemHi genericname; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #4 20121105 05:49:45
Re: Chebyshev's theorem problemThe example for when k=2 said that you have to integrate f(x) from something to something to compute p( _ < X < _ ) so I assumed that I had to. It was listed as an Exponential distribution problem and it said to do the same with k= 3 and 4. #5 20121105 05:55:49

Re: Chebyshev's theorem problemThe next part of the problem wanted us to compare the answers to the predictions of Chebyshev's theorem. #7 20121105 06:03:20

Re: Chebyshev's theorem problemThe question does ask for the 'actual' probability. You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei
