5.11:1,4,15,23,24,25
Problem 1 of 5.11
I actually did this in class at some point. But here goes anyway. We are working
with random variables P (continuous) and X (discrete) about which we know
fP (p) = 1 for 0 < p < 1 (yes, indeed, the formula is that simple)
and
fX|P (x|p) =
n
x
px
(1 - p)n-x
for 0 < p < 1 and x = 0, . . . , n.
Therefore, after multiplying we get
fX,P (x, p) =
n
x
px
