For a and b below, state the distribution, state the limits, and draw a small chart of the distribution. a. [8] Find the marginal distribution of Y. g(y) = dx x y 1 3 = 1.5(1-y 2 ) for 0<y< 1 = 0 elsewhere b. [10] Find the conditional distribution of (X | Y = 0.6) h (X|Y = 0.6) = [3x / 1.5(1-y 2 ] (for y= 0.6) = 3.125 x for 0.6<x<1 = 0 elsewhere c.
