Unformatted text preview: Show directly (by computing the indicated partial derivative) that ∂ 2 ∂x∂y F X,Y ( x, y ) = f X ( x ) f Y ( y ) . Is this surprising? Why or why not? (c) If Z ∼ N (0 , 1) is independent of X and Y , determine the joint density of ( X, Y, Z ). 3. * On the top of page 10, Gut writes: “The joint distribution function can be expressed in terms of the joint probability function and the joint density function, respectively, in the obvious way.” Write down these two (obvious) expressions for the joint distribution function....
