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 instruments that we can use to measure Θ. The first instrument yields a measurement of the form X1=Θ+W, and the second instrument yields a measurement of the form X2=2Θ+3W. We pick an instrument at random, with each instrument having probability 1/2 of being chosen. Assume that this choice of instrument is independent of everything else. Let X be the measurement that we observe, without knowing which instrument was used.

Give numerical answers for all parts below.
