I really doubt that anybody would help me out on this...because by experience, nobody ever replies to the stats stuff on this forum...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

But i'll try anyway

Question

the hazard rate function is:

h(t) = lamda > 0 ...................... for 0 =< t =< 50

h(t) = lamda + alpha(t - 50) ....... for t> 50

Find the surviovr function S'/S = -h.

Answer

So far...all i know is that S = e^-(lamda)t for 0 =< t =< 50

I'm not sure what to do from here...

Can somebody give me a boost please?
