We would like to point out that the formula for the cumulative distribution given in Coelho-Barros et al. (2017) and a similar version of it given in Usman et al. (2021) are not cumulative distribution functions as these functions do not satisfy the one or more necessary and sufﬁcient conditions for a function to be a cumulative distribution function. We would also like to mention that formulas for the cumulative distribution functions of product and ratio of two independent Pareto and Exponential random variables given by Obeid and Kadry (2022) are not cumulative distribution functions either. We do not believe that these formulas can be ﬁxed to be cumulative distribution functions. In this short article, we provide mathematical justiﬁcation in support of these claims.
