Unformatted text preview: 27 Conditional Distributions - Recall Section 1.7. Let A and B be any events in 8. Suppose A depends on B7 knowing B adds information about A. The conditional probability of A given B is denoted P(AjBi Pom B) P(A P(B‘) 3) a Let X and Y be continuous random variables with joint pdf fXJ-(Jr, y). The conditional distribution of X given Y : y is defined by fX,1"(:L-i y) f3" (y) for which the rules about mean and variance apply. it (IY :y) : o The conditional expected value of X given Y : y is “XI?” : E[XfY=yl : ] :zfxifi’:y)dr XEX o The conditional variance of X given 1’ :_ y is “in? : vai'lXiYZEl =/ (inﬂxiyfﬁii .rEX Y:y)d;t and can be found by vm-gxly : y] : E [my : MEE my : y] - Example: A soft drink machine has a random amount X in supply (meeeured in hundreds of gallons) at the beginning of a given day and dispenses a random amount Y during the day (measured in hundreds of gallons).

### 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.
