Question about distribution

  1. Mar 21, 2009 #1
    Hello all, I have a question about distribution. Can you help me? Thank you!

    Here is the problem:

    X1,X2,... are continuous and independent, with marginal pdf f(x). Xi represents the of sunny day of the ith year. How to derive the distribution of the number of years until the first year's sunny days, X1, is exceeded for the first time?

    This looks like homework to me. Either way, you need to show some working or point out what you struggle with. No one is going to hand a solution to you.
