1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Given the function F(x) = 1 - e^(-ax) - axe^(-ax) for x>=0 and 0 elsewhere, for which values of 'a' does the function constitute a CDF? 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I started with saying for that to occur, provided x1>x2 -> F(x1) > F(x2) Though I've only managed to say for x1=0 and x2=1 -> a>0 but I'm not sure if it's an unequivocal answer. How can I prove it decisively?
