In this paper, we introduce a general method for obtaining more flexible new distributions by compounding the extended Weibull and power series distributions on a latent complementary risk problem base. The properties of the proposed class are discussed, including a formal proof of an expension for its density function and explicit formulae for its hazard rate function, quantiles, ordinary and incomplete moments and generating function. The method of maximum likelihood is used for estimating… CONTINUE READING
