# Exam P Practice Problem 59 – Joint Distributions

Problem 59-A

Two random losses $X$ and $Y$ are jointly modeled by the following density function: $\displaystyle f(x,y)=\frac{1}{32} \ (4-x) \ (4-y) \ \ \ \ \ \ 0

Suppose that both of these losses had occurred. Given that $X$ exceeds 2, what is the probability that $Y$ is less than 2? $\displaystyle (A) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 0.4000$ $\displaystyle (B) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 0.4667$ $\displaystyle (C) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 0.7518$ $\displaystyle (D) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 0.8571$ $\displaystyle (E) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 0.9375$ $\text{ }$ $\text{ }$ $\text{ }$ $\text{ }$

Problem 59-B

Two random losses $X$ and $Y$ are jointly modeled by the following density function: $\displaystyle f(x,y)=\frac{1}{96} \ (x+2y) \ \ \ \ \ \ 0

Suppose that both of these losses had occurred. What is the probability that only one of them exceeds 2? $\displaystyle (A) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 0.1250$ $\displaystyle (B) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 0.2083$ $\displaystyle (C) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 0.2917$ $\displaystyle (D) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 0.3750$ $\displaystyle (E) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 0.5000$

# Exam P Practice Problem 31 – Covariance

Problem 31A

A traveler is at the airport of City A and wants to reach his home in City B. He plans to take an airplane flight from City A to the airport of City B. Once he arrives in the airport of City B, he plans to reach his home by riding in a bus. Let $X$ be the time (in hours) of his flight from City A to City B. Let $Y$ be the time (in hours) of the bus ride. The following is the joint density function of $X$ and $Y$. $\displaystyle f(x,y)=\frac{1}{16} \ x \ y \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 0

Let $W$ be the total time of travel from the airport of City A to his home in City B. Calculate the covariance of $X$ and $W$. $\text{ }$ $\text{ }$ $\text{ }$ $\text{ }$

Problem 31B

An investor is facing two potential financial losses $X$ and $Y$ with the following joint density function: $\displaystyle f(x,y)=0.025 \ x \ e^{-0.2 \ y} \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 0

Let $T$ be the total of these two losses. Calculate the covariance of $T$ and $Y$.
