What you did gives you the probability of a sample with value less than a.I guess I just had to integrate the probability density function between 1 and a.
Can anyone confirm?
Forget this post: the thing I integrated was x * dF(x) and moreover the result I gave here is wrong.Ok. It seems I got all the way to the finish line and stopped just before :
I guess I just had to integrate the probability density function between 1 and a (it's defined between 1 and +oo).
It gives : (a ^(1 - k) - 1) * k / (1 - k)
Can anyone confirm?
Thank you so much.Try the following instead: First calculate the conditional distribution function[itex]\mathbb{P}(X\leqx| X \leq a)[/itex].
[...]
I suggest you try them both and check if they really are the same
