Question 1 (12 points) The joint probability distribution of the annual pre-tax labour (work) income Y (\$ 000) and annual pre-tax asset income X (\$ 000) of adult individuals is as follows: Income from assets (X) Income from work (Y) 4 6 8 10 40 0.01 0.01 0 0 60 0.07 0.15 0 0.07 80 0.03 0.17 0.10 0.08 100 0 0.20 0.10 0.01 a. What are the probabilities that an individual would earn (i) \$80 thousand from work and \$8 thousand of asset income, and (ii) \$40 thousand from work given that he/she earns \$6 thousand from assets, and (iii) \$10 thousand from assets. (2 points) b. Find means and variances of X and Y. Then find the covariance between them. (4 points ) c. What is the mean and variance of total, pre-tax income S = X +Y. (3 points) d.
