    Let's break this down more.

    1) You have a PDF, call it f(x), it is (2.5(200^2.5))/x^3.5 defined on range [200, infinity)

    2) To calculate your CDF, call it F(x), you would take the integral of...
  3. What function are you taking the derivative of?...

    What function are you taking the derivative of? Is your function

    1) (2.5(200^2.5))/t^3.5

    2) Integral[ (2.5(200^2.5))/t^3.5 dt from 200 to x ]


    Those are 2 different functions.
  4. I have no idea what you are actually asking or...

    I have no idea what you are actually asking or trying to do. But why do you think plugging in 200 should give you -1. Also when you say between 200 and x, are you saying the integral is FROM 200 TO...

    Y1 = X1 + X2 and Y2 = X1/X2.

    Then 2nd equation implied that X1 = Y2X2.

    Plug that into first equation to get

    Y1 = Y2X2 + X2 = X2(Y2+1) i.e. X2 = Y1/(Y2+1)

    You know that X1 = Y2X2 =...

    Is the answer \sqrt{\pi}/4? If so you might have to get it in form of the standard normal and then see which factor is missing and use the symmetry of standard normal random variable.
