Please see the attached file for the fully formatted problems.

1. A particle is distributed along the positive x axis with a probability density
P(x) = C x2 exp(-(x/a)2). Determine it's average coordinate <x>, and the fluctuation <&#61508;x2> ; where <&#61508;x>= x-<x>

2. The coordinate of a particle is distributed along the WHOLE x-axis with a probability density
P(x) = C /(x2 +a2)3/2.
Determine C, <x>, and the fluctuation <&#61508;x2>
