Fx(x) = (1+4x)/3 for 0<x<1
= 0 for x=<0; x>=1.
(a) Determine the joint p.d.f of Y1 and Y6 where Y1<Y2<...Y6 are the order statistics.
(b) Let R= Y6Y1 and Z=Y1 in the joint p.d.f in (a).

probability density
function of R and Z.
(iv) Write down the integral you
would have to solve to
determine the p.d.f of R.
Do not solve the integral.
