Suppose the random variables X, Y, Z have the following joint p.d.f.: Determine the univariate marginal p.d.f. for each of X, Y, and Z. (25) 3. Consider two random variables X and Y, where X = price and Y = quantity. Researcher A predicts quantity given price with E*(YX), making prediction error U = Y  E*(YX). Researcher B predicts price given quantity with E*(XY), making prediction error V = X  E*(XY). Find Cov(U, V) and express it in terms of the correlation D XY between price and quantity. (13) 4.
