## Question number: 30

» Probability » Conditional Probability

Appeared in Year: 2011

### 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).
