# Hazard rate of the Pareto distribution

I need to calculate the hazard rate of the Pareto distribution.

I know that the residual life distribution looks at the remaining waiting time given that you have already waited for a certain amount of time x, and the hazard rate can be thought of as the likelihood of the wait time ending now, given that you have waited x time already

But I don't quite see how to use that in order to compute it.
