 A random variable Y is said to have a gamma
distribution with parameters α>0 and β>0 if and only
if the density function of Y is

Chi-Square Distribution
 Let v be a positive integer. A random variable Y is said
to have a chi-square distribution with v degrees of
freedom if and only if Y is a gamma-distributed
random variable with parameters α=v/2 and β=2
Exponential Distribution
 A random variable Y is said to have an exponential
distribution with parameter β>0, α=1 if only if the
density function of Y is

Example
The magnitude of earthquakes recorded in a region of
Norh America can be modeled as having an exponetial
distribution with mean 2.4, as measured on the Richter
scale. Find the probability that an earthquake striking
the region will
(a) exceed 3.0 on the Richter scale
(b) fall between 2.0 and 3.0 on the Richter scale
(a)
1-pgamma(3,1,1/2.4)
(b)
1-pgamma(2,1,1/2.4)-(1-pgamma(3,1,1/2.4))

Practice
The operator of a pumping station has observed that
demand for water during early afternoon hours an
approximately exponential distribution with mean 100
cfs(cubic feet per second).
(a) Find the probability that the demand will exceed 200
cfs during the early afternoon on a randomly selected
day
(b) What water-pumping capacity should the station
maintain during early afternoon so that the probability
that demand will exceed capacity on a randomly
selected day is only .01?
