The p.d.f of a continuous r.v X is given by < < - = . , 0 , 2 3 , 5 / 1 ) ( elsewhere x x f X Find (a) ( 29 1 2 X P (b) (29 . 0 ) sin( X P π 2. The probability of heads p of a random variable is itself a random variable X (i.e., X = p ). Further X is uniform in the interval (0,1). (a) Find the probability that at the next tossing the coin will show tails. (b) The coin is tossed 10 times and heads showed 6 times (observation). Find the a posteriori probability that X is between 0.35 and 0.75 (i.e., we need ), | 75 . 0 35 . 0 ( B X P < < where B is the given observation). 3. Let X have p.d.f ).
