Unformatted text preview: University of Illinois Fall 2009 ECE 313: Problem Set 12: Solutions Joint Distributions of Random Variables 1. [Joint pmfs] (a) The marginal pmfs p X ( u ) and p Y ( v ) are column and row sums as shown in the table below. u → v ↓ 1 3 5 Row sum 4 1/12 1/6 1/12 1/3 3 1/6 1/12 1/12 1/3-1 1/12 1/6 1/12 1/3 Column sum 1/4 1/3 1/4 1/6 1 (b) The eyeball test tells us that X and Y are dependent random variables. Less optically, p X , Y (0 , 4) = 6 = p X (0) p Y (4) = 1 4 × 1 3 = 1 12 and so X and Y are not independent random variables. (c) P { X ≤ Y } = p X , Y (0 , 3) + p X , Y (0 , 4) + p X , Y (1 , 3) + p X , Y (1 , 4) + p X , Y (3 , 4) = 1 2 . P { X + Y ≤ 4 } = p X (0) + p X , Y (1 , 3) + p X , Y (1 ,- 1) + p X , Y (3 ,- 1) + p X , Y (5 ,- 1) = 7 12 . (d) p X | Y ( u | 3) = p X , Y ( u, 3) p Y (3) = 1 / 2 , 1 / 4 , 1 / 4 respectively for u = 0 , 1 , 5. E [ X | Y = 3] = 0 × 1 2 + 1 × 1 4 + 5 × 1 4 = 3 2 . var ( X | Y = 3) = E [ X 2 | Y = 3]- ( E [ X | Y = 3]) 2 = 1 × 1 4 + 5 2 × 1 4- 3 2 2 = 26 4- 9 4 = 17 4 . 2.
