Upper bound of random variable

  1. Feb 21, 2012 #1

    If a random variable is generated with the pdf of p(f) = 1/(f^x),
    how can I derive the upper bound or lower bound of the random variable?

    Use the properties:
    p(f) \ge 0

    \int_{f_\mathrm{min}}^{f_\mathrm{max}}{p(f) \, df} = 1
