3. Are
X

independent?
2. If

are independent Poisson distribution having the same parameter 1. Cal
culate the conditional distribution of

3. Let

verify the answer. The idea is a follows. Suppose a coin having probability
p
of coming
up heads is continuously ﬂipped. If a second hear occurs on ﬂip number
n
, what is the
conditional probability that the ﬁrst head was on ﬂip number
