550.420 Introduction to Probability Fall 2011 Homework 9 Due Thursday November 3, 2011 1. (2 points) Suppose X and Y have joint density f X,Y ( x,y ) = 1 2 e - y I (0 , ) ( y ) I ( - y,y ) ( x ) . Compute P [ X 1 | Y = 3]. 2. (2 points) Suppose X and Y have joint density f ( x,y ) = 1 2 (3 x 2 + 4 xy ) I (0 , 1) ( x ) I (0 , 1) ( y ) . Find the marginal density of X and the conditional density of Y given X = x . 3. (2 points) First a point Y is selected at random from the interval (0,1), then another point is selected at random from the interval ( Y ,1). Find the probability density of X . 4. (2 points) A fair coin is flipped until the sixth head is obtained. If the third head occurs on the

Unformatted text preview: ²fth ±ip, what is the frequency function of number of ±ips? 5. (2 points) Let-1 / 9 < c < 1 / 9 be a constant. Let p X,Y ( x, y ) be given by the following table: Y X-1 1-1 1 9 1 9-c 1 9 + c 1 9 + c 1 9 1 9-c 1 1 9-c 1 9 + c 1 9 (a) Show that the frequency function of X + Y is the convolution of the frequency functions of X and Y for all c . (b) Show that X and Y are independent if and only if c = 0. 1...

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
