### Describe in Detail

Let (X, Y) be distributed as bivariate normal BVN (3,1, 16,25,3/5). Calculate P (4 < Y < 11.84|X=7)

### Explanation

We had known that the conditional distribution of Y given X has mean and variance .

### Describe in Detail

The marginal distributions of X and Y are given in the following table:

 X 1 2 Total Y 3 4 ? ? ? ? 1/4 3/4 Total 1/2 1/2 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

### Describe in Detail

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

and other values of f (x, y) is 0
