We have that p ( x,y ) = braceleftbigg 1 25 ( x 2 + y 2 ) if x = 1 , 2 , y = 0 , 1 , 2 else . We want, p X  Y ( x  y ) = p ( x,y ) p Y ( y ) . So we need to find p Y ( y ) for y ∈ { , 1 , 2 } . p Y ( y ) = 2 summationdisplay x =1 1 25 ( x 2 + y 2 ) = 1 25 (5 + 2 y 2 ) . Thus, for x ∈ { 1 , 2 } , y ∈ { , 1 , 2 } , p X  Y ( x  y ) = 1 25 ( x 2 + y 2 ) * 25 5 + 2 y 2 = x 2 + y 2 5 + 2 y 2 . To find P ( X = 2  Y = 1) is now simple: P ( X = 2  Y = 1) = p X  Y (2 , 1) = 2 2 + 1 2 5 + 2 * 1 2 = 5 7 . Similarly, the expectation is given via E [ X  Y = 1] = 2 summationdisplay x =1 xp X  Y ( x  1) = 1 * 1 + 1 7 + 2 * 5 7 = 12 7 . 3. Let X be the number of flips needed until the 6th head appears. Let Z be the number of flips needed to get the third head. We know that Z = 5. Let Y be the number of flips after the fifth until the 3rd head appears. Then, because we know that the third head occurs onuntil the 3rd head appears....
