**Stats**

The Geometric distribution is used when we want to ﬁnd the probability of performing a sequence of trials with X “failures” before the ﬁrst “success”, where a “success” occurs with some probability p. We can denote such a random variable as X ∼ Geo(p). The ...

A researcher finds that two continuous, random variables of interest, X and Y, have a joint probability density function (pdf) given by: f(x,y)={cxy 0<=x<=1,0<=y<=1,x+y=>1, .........0 otherwise where c is a constant. (i) Find the value of c so that f(x,y) ...

**Probability**

Let Θ be an unknown random variable that we wish to estimate. It has a prior distribution with mean 1 and variance 2. Let W be a noise term, another unknown random variable with mean 3 and variance 5. Assume that Θ and W are independent. We have two different ...
