5.1 SECTION 5.2
5.1 . This is the cdf of the Pareto distribution. The pdf is .
5.2 After three years, values are inflated by 1.331. Let X be the 1995 variable and Y = 1.331X be the 1998 variable. We want
Pr(Y > 500) = Pr(X > 500/1.331) = Pr(X > 376).
From the given information we have Pr(X > 350) = 0.55 and Pr(X > 400) = 0.50. Therefore, the desired probability must be between these two values.
This is the inverse Pareto distribution with τ = α and θ = 1/θ. Transformed: . This is the Burr distribution with α = α, γ = τ, and θ = θ1/τ. Inverse transformed:
This is the inverse Burr distribution with τ = α, γ = τ and θ = θ−1/τ.
This is the loglogistic distribution with γ unchanged and θ = 1/θ.
