Therefore, E ( X ) = Z ∞-∞ xf X ( x ) dx = Z 1 1 5 (4 x 2 + 3 x ) dx = 1 5 4 3 x 3 + 3 2 x 2 1 = 17 30 and E ( Y ) = Z ∞-∞ yf Y ( y ) dy = Z 2 1 10 (2 y 2 + 3 y ) dy = 1 10 2 3 y 3 + 3 2 y 2 2 = 17 15 . Also, E ( XY ) = Z ∞-∞ Z ∞-∞ xyf X,Y ( x,y ) dxdy = Z 2 Z 1 1 10 (4 x 2 y + 2 xy 2 + xy ) dxdy = Z 2 1 10 4 3 x 3 y + x 2 y 2 + 1 2 x 2 y 1 dy = Z 2 1 10 y 2 + 11 6 y dy = 1 10 1 3 y 3 + 11 12 y 2 2 = 19 30 . 1 ORIE 3500/5500, Fall ’10 Solutions for Practice Problems Therefore, Cov( X,Y ) = E ( XY )- E ( X ) E ( Y ) = 19 30- 17 30...
