4. Consider a tray with 8 lemonades and 3 raspberry juices. Alice and Bob each take 1 drink from the tray, without replacement. Assume that all of their choices are equally likely. Let X 1 and X 2 indicate (respectively) if Alice and Bob (respectively) get lemonade. In other words, X 1 = 1 if Alice gets lemonade, or X 1 = 0 otherwise; and X 2 = 1 if Bob gets lemonade, or X 2 = 0 otherwise. a. Find E ( X 1 | X 2 = 1).

Unformatted text preview: b. Find E ( X 1 | X 2 = 0). 4 5. Sally and David each pick 10 owers from the case without paying attention to what type of owers they are picking. There are a large quantity of owers available, 20% of which are roses. Let X be the number of roses that Sally picks, and let Y be the number of roses that the couple picks altogether. Find the number of roses that we expect Sally to pick if the total number of roses picked is Y = 12. 5 6. Design your own problem and solution. Create your own problem about conditional expectation. Design your problem in such a way that you would nd it enjoyable and also interesting (i.e., not completely trivial) if you found this problem in a probability book. Please provide the answer for your problem too. 6...
