Suppose that (θ1,...,θK) has the (singular) DirichletK(α1,...,αK) distribution, withα1,...,αK>0. Focusing on the caseK= 3, prove the following results.(a) The marginal distribution ofθ1is Beta(α1,α2+α3).(b) The distribution ofθ1+θ2is Beta(α1+α2,α3).(c) Conditional distribution ofθ2/(1−θ1) givenθ1is Beta(α2,α3).(d) The covariance ofθ1andθ2isCov(θ1,θ2) =−α1α2α20(α0+ 1)whereα0=3∑j=1α


Rules: You must unite your name and the East .5 digits of your student ID on the
submitted work. If you consult anybody other than the instructor or the teaching assistants
regarding the assignment, or used any resources other than the reference books listed in the
syllabus, you must report that in your submission. 1. Suppose that heights of individuals in a population follow the Normal{p, oz) distribu—
