  • so E(5X)=5X? X has a uniform distribution. why we don't compute expectation of X?

  • That would be E(E(Y|X=x))....Which is unconditional expectation..Here we are asked to compute the conditional distribution..Which means I have the knowlendge that X=x....Now I want to compute the expected value of Y given this information

  • And by the way, E(5X) is not 5X... E(5X)=0 when X has Unif(-1,1) distribution
