STAT 400 Examples for 10/06/2011 (1) Fall 2011 Multivariate Distributions Let X and Y be two discrete random variables. The joint probability mass function p ( x , y ) is defined for each pair of numbers ( x , y ) by p ( x , y ) = P( X = x and Y = y ). Let A be any set consisting of pairs of ( x , y ) values. Then P ( ( X, Y ) A ) = ( ) ( ) ∑ ∑ y x A y x p , , . Let X and Y be two continuous random variables. Then f ( x , y ) is the joint probability density function for X and Y if for any two-dimensional set A P ( ( X, Y ) A ) = ( ) ∫∫ A dy dx y x f , . 1. Consider the following joint probability distribution p ( x , y ) of two random variables X and Y: x \ y 0 1 2 1 0.15 0.10 0 2 0.25 0.30 0.20 a) Find P ( X + Y = 2 ). b) Find P ( X > Y ).
