## Abstract

In this paper, the differential calculus was used to obtain some classes of ordinary differential equations (ODE) for the probability density function, quantile function, survival function, inverse survival function and hazard function of the Harris extended exponential distribution. The case of reversed hazard function was excluded because of its complexity. The stated necessary conditions required for the existence of the ODEs are consistent with the various parameters that defined the distribution. Solutions of these ODEs by using numerous available methods are new ways of understanding the nature of the probability functions that characterize the distribution. The method can be extended to other probability distributions, functions and can serve an alternative to estimation and approximation.
