11/12 p. 2 Obviously Y has the same marginal distribution as X . Therefore () 4 1 = Y E . For the variance, consider () () 10 1 5 3 2 3 3 6 3 1 3 1 0 5 4 3 1 0 4 3 2 1 0 2 2 2 = + = + = = x x x dx x x x dx x x X E 80 3 4 1 10 1 2 = = = Y Var X Var Now for the covariance, () ( ) ∫∫ = = 1 0 1 0 1 6 , y dxdy y x xy dxdy y x xyf XY E [] = 1 0 1 0 3 2 2 1 3 dy y x y y x y = 1 0 3 1 dy y y 20 1 5 4 1 1 0 5 4 1 0 3 = = = y y dy y y ( ) ( ) 80 1 4 1 4 1 20 1 = × = = Y E X E XY E XY Cov Therefore the correlation coefficient between X and Y is ( ) 3 1 80 3 80 3 80 1 , , = × = = Y Var X Var Y X Cov Y X Corr .
