What is the probability that this person is from Arizona if you know that (s)he voted for Bush? 3. (12 points) Let X and Y have joint density 8 xy x y 1 , otherwise . (a) Find f Y ( y ). (b) Find Cov ( X,Y ). (c) Are X and Y independent? Explain. 4. (22 points) Suppose X U (0 , 1) and Y U (0 , 1) are independent....
