IE 336 Spring 2011 1. From HW1, we know that f X ( x ) = 2 e x - 2 e - 2 x , 0 x < and f Y ( y ) = 2 e - 2 y , 0 y < . Determine E ( Y ): Y exp (2). Therefore, E ( Y ) = 1 λ = 1 2 . Determine E ( X ): E ( X ) = Z x xf X ( x ) dx = Z 0 x ( 2 e - x - 2 e - 2 x ) dx = Z 0 2 xe - x dx - Z 0 2 xe - 2 x dx = 2 ± ² ² - xe - x ² ² 0 + Z 0 e - x dx ³ - 2 ±² ² ² ² - 1 2 xe - 2 x ² ² ² ² 0 + Z 0 1 2 e - 2 x dx ³ = 2 ´ 0 + e 0 µ - 2 ± 0 + 1 4 e 0 ³ E ( X ) = 3 2 Since the interval [ y, ) was used to find f X ( x ), it may be tempting to use the same interval to find E ( X ). However, this interval was used to integrate away the y values from the joint pdf, f ( x,y ). As a result, f X ( x ) is defined for x [0 , ). Determine E ( Y | x ): From HW1, f ( y | x ) = e - y 1 - e - x , 0 y x < . E ( Y | x ) = Z y yf ( y | x ) dy = Z x 0 y e - y 1 - e - x dy = 1 1 - e - x Z x 0 ye - y dy = 1 1 - e - x ± ² ² - ye - y ² ² x 0 + Z x 0 e - y dy ³ = - xe - x - e - x + 1 1 - e - x E ( Y | x ) = 1 - x e x - 1 Again, be careful with the bounds for integration.
