Perhaps you could provide the functional form/parameterisation of the Rice distribution that you are using. There are almost always multiple versions around ...

comment What is the distribution of 'max of some normaldistributions'?
This is a duplicate of: math.stackexchange.com/questions/382237/… ... While the question here is a bit more general, the answer to the latter ... in particular, the references to the papers by Nadarajah and Kotz, provide the answer you seek.

comment For each of the following, determine the constant c so that f(x) satisfies the conditions for being a p.m.f
You really should not do other people's homework for them. At best, it is morally corrupt. At worst, it is unfair on the student by denying them the very learning process of doing it by themselves, and unfair on the university whose task it is to assess.

comment $X_1, \dots, X_n$ are independent random variables. Suppose $M = \min(X_1, X_2, \dots, X_n)$
What is the intent of the conditioning that the sample minimum $M = X_i$, and what do you intend it to mean? Because as it stands, I suspect this is a question that some well-meaning person is going to go to a lot of trouble to solve, only to find out that you intended something quite different.
