Question 1: Consider the following functions. F ( x ) = Z x f ( s ) ds g ( x ) = F ( h ( x )) = Z h ( x ) f ( s ) ds Express d dx F ( x ) and d dx g ( x ) using f ( x ) and h ( x ). Question 2: [Intermediate/Exam Level] (Compare it with HW4Q1). Consider a continu- ous random variable X with the following pdf f X ( x ): f X ( x ) = 1 . 5 e- 3 | x | for all x (1) Consider a discrete “quantizer” Y of the magnitude of X as follows. For any X , if k ≤ | X | < k + 1, then Y = k . For example, if the X value is- π , then Y = 3 since 3 ≤ | - π | < 4. If the X value is 1 . 25, then Y = 1. Find the pmf of the discrete variable Y . Namely, find P ( Y = k ) for k = 0 , 1 , 2 ··· . What type of random variables is Y ? Question 3: [Intermediate/Exam Level] Let X = Y 1 + Y 2 + ··· + Y n be a binomial random variable that results from the summation of n independent Bernoulli random variables Y 1 to Y n . The success probability of Y i is p for i...
