Unformatted text preview: Problem 3 (45 points) Let X and Y be two jointly continuous random variables with pdf __ C D<x+y£1,ﬂ<r—y£1 fx.y(r,y}—{O otherwise where C is a positive constant. Sketch the region where fxy(1‘,y) is nonzero. (5 points) Now, in each question given below and on the next page‘ only one of the given four answers is correct. In each case. circle the letter corresponding to the correct answer. Here each correct choice counts +4 points. whereas an incorrect choice receives —1 point. You. can use the space provided at the bottom of each page as well as the facing pages for scratch work.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
