    Let Y be a random variable with p.d.f. ce^-6s for s > 0. (a) Determine c. (b) What is the mean, variance, and squared coefficient of variation of Y where the squared coefficient of variation of Y is defined as Var[Y]/(E[Y]^2)? (c) Compute Pr{Y > 6}. (d) Compute Pr{Y > 8 | Y > 2}. (e) What is the point x* such that Pr{Y > x*} = 1/3?
