SHORT ANSWER: Each part is a separate problem.
(a)
Y
is a Gaussian
(μ
=
5
, σ
=
10
)
random variable. Calculate
P
[
Y
>
20].
(b)
X
is a Gaussian
(μ
=
0
, σ
=
1
)
random variable.
Z
is a Gaussian
(
0
,
4
)
random variable.
X
and
Z
are
independent. Let
Y
=
X
+
Z
. Find the correlation coefﬁcient
ρ
of
X
and
Y
. Are
X
and
Y
independent?
