HARD WAY: Compute marginal pdfs f x ( X ) = R f x,y ( X, Y ) dY and f y ( Y ) = R f x,y ( X, Y ) dX and show that f x,y ( X, Y ) 6 = f x ( X ) f y ( Y ). 1c. f x ( X ) = R X 0 dY 8 XY = 4 XY 2 | X 0 = 4 X 3 , 0 < X < 1; 0, otherwise. 1d. f y | x ( Y | X ) = 8 XY 4 X 3 = 2 Y/X 2 , 0 < Y < X < 1 = 8 Y, 0 < Y < 1 / 2. 1e. F z ( Z ) = Pr [ z Z ] = Pr [( y x ) Z ] = Pr [ y xZ ] = 8 R 1 0 dX X R XZ 0 dY Y = 4 R 1 0 dX X ( XZ ) 2 = Z 2 , 0 < Z < 1 f z ( Z ) = dF z dZ = 2 Z, 0 < Z < 1. Note if Z > 1 then upper integral limit changes to X and F z ( Z ) = 1. This makes sense: y x z = y/x 1 Pr [ z Z > 1] = 1. 1f. Pr [( x + y ) < 1] = 8 R 1 / 2 0 dY Y R 1 - Y Y dX X = 4 R 1 / 2 0 dY Y ((1 - Y ) 2 - Y 2 ) = 4( Y 2 2 - 2 Y 3 3 ) | 1 / 2 0 = 1 / 6. 2a. Pr[second coin heads]=( 2 3 )( 3 4 ) + ( 1 3 )( 4 5 ) = 23 / 30. 2b. Pr[A heads | second coin heads]= P r [ coin A heads coin B heads ] P r [2 nd coin heads ] = (2 / 3)(3 / 4) 23 / 30 = 15 / 23. 2c.

Unformatted text preview: | n ﬂips of 2 nd coin heads]= ( 2 3 )( 3 4 ) n / [( 2 3 )( 3 4 ) n + ( 1 3 )( 4 5 ) n ]. 2e. LIM n →∞ [answer to (d)]=0 since ( 4 5 ) n dominates ( 3 4 ) n . 2f. Coin C is more likely than coin B to land heads indeﬁnitely. 2g. Pr [ E ] = Pr [ E ∩ F ] + Pr [ E ∩ F ] → Pr [ E ∩ F ] = Pr [ E ]-Pr [ E ∩ F ] = Pr [ E ]-Pr [ E ] Pr [ F ] = Pr [ E ](1-Pr [ F ]) = Pr [ E ] Pr [ F ] → E,F are independent. Q.E.D.

### 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.
