Greater than 4

## Solutions

##### Expert Solution

P(1) = P(2) = P(3) = P(4) = P(5) = P(6) = 1/6

P(greater than 4) = P(5) + P(6) = 1/6 + 1/6 = 2/6 = 1/3 (ans)

A fair die is rolled. If the result is greater than 4, a fair coin is flipped, and otherwise, an unfair coin with P[H] = 2/3 is flipped. The outcome of the die roll is mapped to X, and the outcome of the coin flip is mapped to Y , with 1 for heads and −1 for tails. (a) Find the joint PMF. (b) Find both marginal PMFs. Do the marginal PMFs indicate independence?
