Name:_______________ Practice Exam 3 Math 3334 Fall, 2007 1. Let X be an exponential random variable with λ =1. Find the density function of Y = X 2 . 2. The scores on an achievement test given to 100,000 students annually are normally distributed with mean 500 and standard deviation 100. What should the score of a student be to place him among the top 10% of all students? You may use Tables 1 and 2 from the Appendix of the textbook. 3. Suppose a coin has probability 1/3 of landing heads and probability 2/3 of landing tails. Suppose a die has probability i/21 that i spots will show on the upturned face when the die is rolled, i = 1,2,. ..,6. An experiment consists of flipping the coin and then rolling the die. Let X be the number of heads showing on the coin and let Y be the number showing on the die. (a) Write the joint probability mass function of X and Y in tabular form. (b) Evaluate E[XY] and E[X+Y].
