You are given a fair die, i.e. the outcomes of any throw are contained in the sample space Let the event A be that an even number is thrown and the event B that a multiple of three is thrown. Now consider the two random variables X and Y. X takes on a value of 1 if the event A has occurred and the value 0 if A has not occurred. The random variable Y takes on the value of 1 if the event B has occurred and the value zero if B has not occurred.
(a) Derive the joint pdf of X and Y. Provide this in the form of a table
b) What is the marginal probability distribution of Y?(c) What is the conditional probability distribution of X, given that Y = 1?(d) What is E (X|Y = 1)?(e) What is Cov (X, Y )?(f) Are X and Y independent random variables?
the _______ of a discrete random variable represents the mean value of the outcomes.
If x has a normal distribution with μ =1 and σ =4, we denote y=4*x+8. Then, the mean of the random variable y is
