Unformatted text preview: niformly distributed in [0, 1]. Define the
new random variables Y = 3 X 1.5, Z = X5 and W = u(X  0.2), where u is the unitstep
function.
a) Determine and plot the pdf of Y. b) Determine the pdf of Z. c) Determine and plot the cumulative distribution function of W. 6 5. A random variable Y has the cumulative distribution function shown below. It is known
that P{Y=2}= 0.6. Plot the pdf of Y and calculate the
FY(y)
variance of Y.
1.0 0 y 2 6. Let N(t) represent the number of hits that a website receives in the interval [0,t], where t ,
in the units of minutes, is measured starting at 6 AM (namely, 6AM corresponds to t=0).
Assume that N(t) is Poisson process with a mean arrival rate of 3 hits/minute.
a) Find the correlation coefficient between N(2) and N(3). b) Give an example of another physical phenomenon that can be effectively modeled by a
Poisson random variable or Poisson process. 7 7. A pair of random variables, X and Y, have a joint pdf given by fXY(x,y)=x+y, for 0≤x≤1,
0≤y≤1, and fXY(x,y)=0 otherwise. Calculate P{0 < X < 0.1  Y=0.5}. Show all yo...
