Unformatted text preview: Exercise 1. Let X; Y be two discrete random variables with their joint mass function f ( x; y ) tabulated below: Y p(X,Y) 1 2 3 4 1 0.11 0.11 0.05 0.10 2 0.11 0.1 0.06 0.10 X 3 0.04 0.07 0.08 0.07 a) Calculate the means of X and Y respectively. b) Calculate the variances of X and Y respectively. c) Calculate the covariance and correlation coefficient between X and Y . 2. In 2006 a hospital sent each surgical patient a bill consisting of X for the services of the hospital and Y for the services of the surgeon. The distributions of X and Y were such that, In 2007 it is expected that the cost of the hospital’s portion of the bill will rise by 10% and the cost of surgical service will rise by 5%. In addition, a service charge of $200 will be added onto the bill for each surgical patient. Calculate the mean and standard deviation for the bill sent to surgical patients in 2007....
