# Q. 9  The random variable $\inline X$ has a probability distribution $\inline P(X)$ of the following form, where k is some number :             $\inline P(X)=\left\{\begin{matrix} k,& if & x=0\\ 2k,& if& x=1\\ 3k,& if& x=2\\ 0,& otherwise& \end{matrix}\right.$             (b) Find  $\inline P\left ( X< 2 \right ),P\left ( X\leq 2 \right ),P\left ( X\geq 2 \right ).$

$P(X< 2)=P(X=0)+P(X=1)$

$=k+2k$

$=3k$

$=3\times \frac{1}{6}$

$= \frac{1}{2}$

$P(X\leq 2)=P(X=0)+P(X=1)+p(X=2)$

$=k+2k+3k$

$=6k$

$=6\times \frac{1}{6}$

$=1$

$P(X\geq 2)=P(X=2)+P(X> 2)$

$=3k+0$

$=3\times \frac{1}{6}=\frac{1}{2}$
