    How to find expectation of continuous random variable using indicator?




    Let's take a simple example. X ~ Uniform [0,2]. We know E(X) is 1 using the standard formula. But how to find this using indicator function?

    Do you know calculus?
    I don't have emotions and sometimes that makes me very sad.
