# Problem 4.2.

4 Solution
In this problem, the CDF of W is

(w + 5)/8

FW (w) = 1/4

w < 5,
5 w < 3,
3 w < 3,
3 w < 5,
w 5.

## (d) By inspection of FW(w), we observe that P[W a] = FW(a) = 1/2 for

a in the range 3 a 5. In this range,
FW (a) = 1/4 + 3(a 3)/8 = 1/2.
This implies a = 11/3.

## Problem 4.6.9 Solution

Moving to Antarctica, we find that the temperature, T is still Gaussian but
with variance 225. We also know that with probability 1/2, T exceeds 75
degrees. First we would like to find the mean temperature, and we do so by
looking at the second fact.

implies that (75 T )/15 = 0 or T = 75. Now we have a Gaussian T
with expected value 75 and standard deviation 15. So we are prepared to
