# 代写180C帮做Python实验

Math 180C MIDTERM 2 DUE 05/22/20, 11:00pm
Write your name and PID on the top of EVERY PAGE.
Write the solutions to each problem on separate pages.
CLEARLY INDICATE on the top of each page the number of
the corresponding problem.
Remember this exam is graded by a human being. Write your
solutions NEATLY AND COHERENTLY, or they risk not re-
ceiving full credit.
You may assume that all transition probability functions are
STATIONARY.
You are allowed to use the textbook, lecture notes and your
personal notes. You are not allowed to use the electronic devices
(except for accessing the online version of the textbook) or outside
assistance. Outside assistance includes but is not limited to other
people, the internet and unauthorized notes.

1. (25 points) Let Y > 0 be a random variable having Gamma distribution with parameters
2 and λ, i.e., the p.d.f. of Y is given by
fY (y) = λ
2ye−λy, y > 0, (1)
and let X ∼ Unif[0, Y ] be a random variable uniformly distributed on [0, Y ].
It is given that E(X) = 1.
(a) (10 points) Determine the unknown parameter λ. [Hint. Compute E(X) with
unknown parameter λ.]
We see that X has exponential distribution with rate 1.
2. (25 points) Certain device consists of two components, A and B. Whenever one of the
components fails, the whole device is immideately replaced by a new one. Components
A and B are the only components that can fail.
Suppose that the lifetimes of components A and B (in days) are independent random
variables both having exponential distributions with rate λ. Let N(t) be the renewal
process counting the number of the replacements of the device on the time interval [0, t].
(a) (10 points) Express the interrenewal times in terms of the lifetimes of components
A and B (hint: this is not a sum) and compute the distribution of the interrenewal
times.
(b) (10 points) Determine an asymptotic expression for the mean age of the device at
time t in the long run.
(c) (5 points) What is the long run probability that the device will fail within next 24
hours?
Solution. Denote by Xi and Yi, i ≥ 1, the random variables describing the lifetimes
of the components A and B correspondingly. Then all Xi and Yi, i ≥ 1, are i.i.d. with
exponential distribution with rate λ.
(a) Denote by Zi the lifetime of the i-th device. Then Zi = min{Xi, Yi} is the in-
terrenewal time of the process that counts the number of the replacement of the
device. Since Xi and Yi are independent exponentially distributed random vari-
ables, Zi ∼ Exp(2λ).
(b) Let δt denote the age of the device at time t. Then, using the limit theorem for the
average age, we have
