Using Euler’s method, compute the values of y correct upto 4 places of decimal for the differential equation with initial condition x 0 = 0, y 0 = 1, taking h = 0.05.

Explanation

The given differential equation is

with initial condition x 0 = 0, y 0 = 1, taking h = 0.05.

Using Euler’s method,

where

So, putting the initial condition, when n = 0

Let X be a random variable defined on (Ω, A, P). Define a point function F (x) =P {ω: X (ω) ≤x}, for all xϵR. Shoe that the function F is indeed a distribution function.

Explanation

Let x 1 < x 2. Then (-∞, x 1] ( (-∞, x 2] and we have

Since F is non decreasing, it is sufficient show that for any sequence of numbers x n ↓x, x 1 > x 2 > … > x n > …x, F (x n) →F (x). Let A k = {ω, X (ω) ϵ (x, x k] }. Then A k ϵS and also

Let (X, Y) have a joint probability mass function

= 0, elsewhere

Find the marginal mass functions of X and Y.

Explanation

Let (X, Y) have a joint probability mass function, the individual distribution of either X or Y is called the marginal distribution. So, the marginal mass functions of X is
