ST561: Study problems for Quiz #4 1. Let Y 1 and Y 2 have joint density function f Y 1 ,Y 2 ( y 1 ,y 2 ) = 8 y 1 y 2 , 0 < y 1 < y 2 < 1 . and U 1 = Y 1 /Y 2 and U 2 = Y 2 . Derive the joint density of ( U 1 ,U 2 ). Show that U 1 and U 2 are independent. 2. Let X follow a gamma distribution with parameters α > 0 and β > 0. Let Y = e X , which is called log-gamma distribution. The log-gamma distribution is used by actuaries as part of an important model for the distribution of insurance claims. Find the pdf of Y . If β < 1, show that E ( Y ) = (1 - β ) - α . If β < 0 . 5, show that V ( Y ) = (1
