4. Let the pair (X, Y ) have joint PDF
fX,Y (x, y) = c, x
2 + y2 ≤ 1.
(a) Find c and the marginal PDFs of X and Y .
(b) What are the means ofX and Y ? No calculations are needed, only a brief explanation
is required.
(c) Find the conditional PDF of Y given X = x and deduce E[Y |X = x].
(d) Obtain E[XY ] and compare it to E[X]E[Y ].
(e) Are X and Y independent? Explain.
(f) Obtain var(Y ) without resorting to integration. Hint: Use the fact that var(X) =
var(Y ) and (c).
5. Let U and R be independent continuous random variables taking values in [0, 1]. We
assume that R is uniform and that U has PDF f , CDF F and mean µ. Define the
random variable V sa follows
V =
{
R + (1−R)U if R ≤ 1/2
RU if R > 1/2
(a) Obtain the mean of V in terms of µ.
(b) Obtain an integral expression of the CDF G of V in terms of F .
(c) Deduce an integral expression of the PDF g of V in terms of f .
Hint: You may assume that in this case
