STAT 408 Spring 2009 Homework #9 (due Friday, April 3, by 3:00 p.m.) 1. Suppose that the random variables X and Y have joint p.d.f. f ( x , y ) given by f ( x , y ) = C x 2 y , 0 < x < y , x + y < 2. a) Sketch the support of ( X , Y ). That is, sketch { 0 < x < y , x + y < 2 }. b) What must the value of C be so that f ( x , y ) is a valid joint p.d.f.? Must have ( 29 ∫ ∫ - - dy dx y x f , = 1. - 1 0 2 2 dx dy y x x x C = = - = 1 0 2 2 2 2 dx y x x y x y C = ( 29 [ ] - - 1 0 2 2 2 2 2 dx x x x C = ( 29 - 1 0 3 2 2 2 dx x x C C = 0 1 4 3 2 3 2 - x x C C = 6 C = 1. C = 6 .
