This is (perhaps) a tricky question regarding the moment of normal distribution.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Let f(x) be the pdf of normal distribution with mean (-σ^2/b) and variance σ^2, where b is just a constant. The goal is to solve the integral

∫ x^3 f(x) dx

integrating from 0 to ∞.

I am stuck. Any suggestions?
