1. A stick of length 1 is cut into three pieces of lengths X, Y , and Z , with X Y Z . First, the stick of length 1 is cut into two pieces at a randomly chosen point uniformly distributed along its length. Then the smaller of these two sticks is also cut into two pieces at a randomly chosen point uniformly distributed along its length. These two cuts are conducted independently. Find Cov( X,Y ).

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
