Can somebody give me advice on how to find variance and the expected value; when one considers the function f(Y) = 1/9 is when 0 <= y <= 9 and the probability is 0 everywhere else when y is not in that interval(0-9). please note that this is a uniform distribution function and Y is continous. Im struggling with the integrals. How can you find an expected value for Y, when all values in the interval [0,9] have the same probability? thanks for your help!

\[E(X) = \int\limits_{0}^{9}p(y)*y = \int\limits_{0}^{9}\frac{y}{9} dy\]

Variance is E(X^2) - E(X)^2

But when I put in 9 for Y: 1/9*9 = 1. But I think the answer is 4.5. Note that I am having trouble with integrals, even basic ones. Is the expected value equal to the average value in this case?

yes it is same as average value since it is uniformly distributed. E(X) = 4.5
