Let X and Y be the two coordinates of a point uniformly chosen in the triangle with vertices (0 , 0), (1 , 1) and ( - 1 , 1). (In other words: the point ( X, Y ) is uniformly chosen in the set { ( x, y ) : 0 y 1 , - y x y } .) Compute (a) (15 points) E ( X ), E ( Y ), (b) (15 points) the correlation of X and Y , (c) (15 points) the conditional expectations E ( X | Y = y ) and E ( Y | X = x ). If you solve this by integration, make sure you take into account the appropriate limits of the
