1) (4 mark) Let X be a Poisson random variable with a certain parameter A > 0 such that P(X = 2) = P(X = 3). Find P(X > 2). Hint: use the complement rule. Show all the steps. Circle the final answer.

2) (3 marks) A continuous random variable X has the following probability density function f„(x) = k e-x2/4, —co < x < 00. Find the value of the constant k. Hint: compare with the density of normal distribution. Show all the steps. Circle the final answer.

3) (4 marks) A continuous random variable X has the following probability density function
