C3_W1_Assignment Ex 4 - Uniform PDF

I was getting an error in the Ex. 6, but it was due to a partial error in the uniform distribution. Not sure why this happened… It took me a while to figure it out the reason.


when evalutaing the scipy.stats module against the implemented formula

Any ideias why this happens?

PDF of uniform distribution is the same for all values in [a, b].
In this case, the pdf of 5.4 falls in [2, 10] and so the value is .125.
Odds are good that you’re considering a=2 and b=10 which is wrong.

Please look here where the parameters loc and scale are used to create uniform distribution of form [loc, loc + scale]. So, the parameter b should be fixed accordingly.

Thanks for the explanation! I did not see that.
