1. Suppose that a variable x has the following distribution function:
f(x) = 0.0800x for x between 0 and 5.0
What is the population mean?

2. Suppose that a variable x has the following distribution function:
f(x) = 0.3200x for x between 0 and 2.5
What is the population variance?

3. Suppose that a variable x has the following distribution function:
f(x) = 0.02000x for x between 0 and 10
What is the value of the cumulative distribution function (F(x))at x = 6?
