Question: 5 let x y be a uniformly distributed random point...

Question details

5. Let (X, Y) be a uniformly distributed random point on the quadrilateral D with vertices (0,0), (2,0),(1,1), (0,1) Uniformly distributed means that the joint probability density function of X and Y is a constant on D (equal to 1/area(D)). (a) Do you think Cov(X, Y) is positive, negative, or zero? Can you answer this without doing any calculations? (b) Compute Cov(X, Y) and pxyCorr(X, Y)
