Unformatted text preview: X 2 ) E ( Y 2 ) (1) (Hint: Use the fact that for any real a , E (( X + aY ) 2 ) ≥ 0.) 5. Two continuous random variables X and Y are described by the pdf f XY ( x,y ) = c, if | x | + | y |≤ 1 √ 2 , otherwise (2) where c is a constant. a) Find c . b) Find f X ( x ) and f X | Y ( x | y ) . c) Are X and Y independent random variables? Justify your answer. Problem d is an optional question, those who solve it will get extra credits. d) De±ne the random variable Z = ( | X | + | Y | ). Find the pdf f Z ( z ). 2...
