Gamma distribution

  1. Feb 28, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    so, I'm given some sample data: electricity consumption on randomly selected n days, and asked to model the problem using Gamma distribution, then the question is to estimate percentage of days on which consumption was > 10 by using moment estimates.

    So, I can find the moment estimates for the two parameters: alpha number of exponentially distributed RVs each with mean lambda.
    But I do not know how to relate the estimates of the parameters to the question I am asked!
    could someone explain, please?

    Really, you have to give the relevant formulas here to get more people (such as me) to try to help.
