... STAT 400 Hillson TEST #2 Nov. 20, 197 r 1. Suppose X and Yare independent random variables defined on the 2. same sample space each having geometric distribution with parameter p. How is W = X + Y distributed? (Hint: use moment-generating functions) (25 points) Suppose a system consists of 2n components arranged as follows -<: 1,>_<1 1/ 'I 1 ",,_/I:==f) __ 1/ "'1---] Assume that the lifetime of each component is exponentially distributed with a parameter A. Find the probability density function for the system lifetime. (25 points) CONTINUED ON BACK 1 3. Suppose X and Yare random variables defined on the same sample space with the following joint probability table . X""Y 0 1 0 1 1 8 4 1 3 1 8 4 (a) Compute PO' ~ X). (b) Compute the probability mass function of the random variable A = X + Y. (c) Compute the marginal probability mass functions PX(x) andi Py(y). (d) Compute Cov(X,Y).
