In Excel, CTRL‘ key combination can be used to display the formulas ( key is located at the top left corner of the keyboard). Do not forget to indicate a recitation session on your homework. This is the session during which you can collect your graded work. 1. a) Assume that we generate N points { ( X n , Y n ) : n = 1 , . . . , N } uniformly distributed over the square [0 , 1] × [0 , 1]. This is the square that ranges from 0 to 1 on the x -axis and also from 0 to 1 on the y -axis. On the average, what fraction of the points would fall under the curve f ( x ) = 1 x 2 ? (Hint: The set of points ( x, y ) ∈ ℜ 2 that satisfy x 2 + y 2 = 1 form a circle with radius 1 and centered at point (0 , 0).)
