Unformatted text preview: H s? What is the probability that exactly four H s are obtained? (ii) (6 pts.) Suppose that the number N of homework problems assigned during a semester is a random variable with geometric pmf P [ N = n ] = 2-n , n 1 Given N = n , the total time T (e.g., in hours) spent on homework has conditional pdf f ( t ) = 3 n t n-1 ( n-1)! e-3 t , t Determine E [ T | N = n ] (a known integral, already encountered in this class) and hence E [ T ]. (iii) (7 pts.) Let X be Gaussian with E [ X ] =-2 and Var[ X ] = 9. Let the conditional distribution of Y given X = x also be Gaussian with mean E [ Y | X = x ] =-2 x + 1 and variance E [ Y 2 | X = x ]-( E [ Y | X = x ]) 2 = 4 Determine E [ Y ], Var[ Y ] and E [ XY ]....
