3. a) We saw that the conditional PDF of Θ is uniform on the range [0,x] . Hence, the conditional variance is x2/12 .

b) This is given by the integral of the conditional variance, weighted by the PDF of X . The PDF of X is found using the formula for going from the joint to the marginal, and is fX(x)=2x , for x∈[0,1] . Thus, the mean squared error is

∫10x212⋅2xdx=16∫10x3dx=124.
