No credit for answers with no explanation. 2-1. Suppose we have a PMF f X with domain S (the original sample space), and we have a map g : S T that induces a probability model with PMF f Y with domain T (the new sample space) given by the formula on slide 82. Prove that for any real-valued function h on T X y T h ( y ) f Y ( y ) = X x S h ( g ( x ) ) f X ( x ) 2-2. Suppose we have the uniform distribution on S = {- 2 ,- 1 , , 1 , 2 } and the random variable X defined by X ( s ) = s 2 , s S. Determine the PMF of the random variable X . 2-3. Suppose X = ( X 1 ,X 2 ) has the uniform distribution on { 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 5 , 6 } 2 . (a) Show that the components of X are independent. (b) Determine the PMF of the distribution of the random variable Y = X 1 + X 2 ....
