1. Let X and Y be independent random variables with means μ x and μ y and variances σ 2 x and σ 2 y . Show that Var( XY ) = σ 2 x σ 2 y + μ 2 y σ 2 x + μ 2 x σ 2 y . 2. Let X and Y be independent normal random variables, each having mean μ and variance σ 2 . Calculate Cov( X + Y,X - Y ). 3. The joint density of X and Y is f ( x,y ) = y 2 - x 2 8 e - y , 0 < y < , - y x y. Show that E [ X | y = y ] = 0. 4. We start with a stick of length = 1 . We break it at a point which is chosen according to a uniform distribution and keep the piece, of length Y , that contains the left end of the stick. We then repeat the same process on the piece that we were left with, and let X be the length of the remaining piece after breaking for the second time. Find the joint PDF of Y and X , and the marginal PDF of X . 5. A total of 11 people, including you, are invited to a party. The time at which peo-
