ORIE 3500/5500 Fall Term 2008 Assignment 7 Note that the due date is Monday, November 3 , at 1:00 pm you need to mention your section number on the top of your answer script. 1. [5 + 5 = 10 pts] Suppose X has PDF f X ( x ) = λe - λx , x 0 , and Y = min( X, 1). Find (a) the transform associated to Y and (b) use it to find the mean of Y . 2. [2 + 3 + 2 + 3 = 10 pts] Let X be a discrete random variables that takes nonnegative integer values, and is associated with a transform of the form M X ( s ) = c 1 + 2 e 3 s 3 - e s , where c is some constant. Find (a) p X (3) (b) E ( X ) (c) p X (1) and (d) E ( X | X 6 = 0). 3. [5 + 5 = 10 pts] Suppose X 1 , X 2 , X 3 , X 4 are independent Uniform (0 , 1) random vari-
