Unformatted text preview: COMER April 19, 2010 ECE 302 Exam 3 1. Enter your name and signature in the space provided below. Your signature certifies that you will not engage in any act of academic dishonesty during the taking of this exam. 2. You may not use a calculator or any other reference materials. 3. This exam consists of three types of problems. For the multiple choice problems, no partial credit will be given. Each fill-in—the-bank answer will be scored either 0, 3, or 5 points. For the final two problems, partial credit will be given at the discretion of the instructor. Name: SOLUTio/ """" Signature: No Partial Credit You must CLEARLY select one answer for each problem. 1. (5 points) Which of the following statements about continuous random variables X and Y, with joint probability density function f Xy(111', y), is NOT true in general? (a) If X and Y are independent, then X and Y are uncorrelated. @‘Elf X and Y are uncorrelated, then X and Y are independent. (c) If X and Y are independent, then ny($, y) = f X (:c) fy(y). (d) If X and Y are jointly Gaussian and uncorrelated, then X and Y are independent. 2. (5 points) Which of the following properties does NOT necessarily hold if X and Y are uncorrelated?
