In this paper we characterize the distribution functions $F$ for which $\lambda _1=c\lambda $ and we estimate $F$ when it is only known that $\lambda _1 /\lambda $ or $\lambda _1 - c\lambda $ is bounded.},

AB - Let $\lambda $ denote the failure rate function of the $d,f$. $F$ and let $\lambda _1$ denote the failure rate function of the mean residual life distribution. In this paper we characterize the distribution functions $F$ for which $\lambda _1=c\lambda $ and we estimate $F$ when it is only known that $\lambda _1 /\lambda $ or $\lambda _1 - c\lambda $ is bounded.
