Describe in Detail

Let X have the continuous c. d. f. F (x). Define U = F (x). Show that both - log U arid -log (1 - U) are exponential random variables:

Explanation

Let U = F (x), then the distribution function of G of U is given by

Since F is non-increasing and its continuous.

G (u) =F (F -1 (u) ) implies G (u) =u

Then the p. d. f is

Since F is a distribution function takes value in range [0,1]. Hence

This is a uniform distribution on [

Describe in Detail

You arc given the following information:

(i) In random testing, you test positive for a disease.

(ii) In 5 % of cases, the test shows positive even when the subject does not have the disease.

(iii) In the population at large, one person in 1000 has the disease. What is the conditional probability that you have the disease given that you have been tested positive, assuming that if someone has the disease, he will test positive with probability 1?

Explanation

Let X denotes the test is positive and Y denotes the person has disease. Given that 5 % of cases, the test shows positive even when the subject does not have the disease that is

where denotes the person has no disease. Also given the test positive with probability 1

Then the conditional probability that you have the dis
