Exercise 1: In a certain community, levels of air pollution may exceed federal standards for ozone of for particulate matter on some days. For a particular summer season, let X be the number of days on which the ozone standard is exceeded and let Y be the number of days on which the particulate matter standard is exceeded. Assume that the joint probability mass function of X and Y is given in the following table
Solution :
Step 1 of 9:
The number of days on which the ozone standard is exceeded is X and
The number of days on which the particulate matter standard is exceeded is Y.
Then the joint probability mass function of X and Y is given in the table below.

Our goal is:
a). We need to find the marginal probability function .
b). We need to find the marginal probability function .
c). We need to find mean .
d). We need to find mean .
e). We need to find mean .
f). We need to find mean .
g). We need to find Cov(X,Y).
h). We need to find .
i). We need to find find X and Y are independent? Explain.
a).
Now we have to find the marginal probability function .
Here we are summing all the rows to find a probability mass function.
Then the table is given below.
