0 1 2 Find P ( X 1 > X 2 + X 3 + 2 ).
Hint: Find the vector a so that a X = X 1 – X 2 – X 3 and make use of Theorem 3.5.1.
Suppose X has a N n ( , ) distribution. Let Y = A X + b, where A
is an m n matrix and b Rm. Then Y has a N m ( A + b, A A' ) distribution. Theorem 3.5.1. 12. If the price of gasoline goes up, the prices of the other goods tend to go up too.
Suppose the price of a gallon of gas ( X ) and the price of a gallon of milk ( Y )
at Anytown follow a bivariate normal distribution with X = $3.45,
a) X = $0.15, Y = $3.27, Y = $0.09, = 0.60. Find the probability that the price of a gallon of milk is below $3.45, if the price
of a gallon of gas is $3.70. That is, find P ( Y < 3.45  X = 3.70 ). b) Find the probability that a gallon of gas costs more than a gallon of milk. That is,
find P ( X > Y ). c) Alex buys 5 gallons of gas and 2 gallons of milk. What is the probability that he
paid more than $25? That is, find P ( 5 X + 2 Y > 25 ). ____________________________________________________________________________
