Describe in Detail

A fair die is thrown until a 6 appears. Specify the sample space. What is the probability that it must be thrown at least 3 times?

Explanation

A fair die content the value {1,2, 3,4, 5,6}

So, the probability of getting 6 is p = 1/6, then probability of getting other than 6 is q = 5/6

If we throw a die, the six is appear. Then the probability is p and the experiment end. However, if the six is not appear, the dice is throwing again and this time the six appear. Then the probability i

Describe in Detail

Consider the following bivariate p. m. f. of (X, Y):

p (0,10) = p (0,20) = 2/18;

p (l, 10) = p (l, 30) = 3/18;

p (1,20) = p (2,30) = 4/18;

Obtain the conditional mass functions p (y lx = 2), and p (y lx = 1).

If the co-variance between X and Y is zero, find the cell probabilities and see whether X and Y are independent.

Explanation

Given that covariance between X and Y is zero

This gives that f (xy) =f (x) f (y)

So, the joint probability density function of x = 1, y = 3 is

We know that if the covariance is zero, then the conditional distribution is equal to unknown distribution
