Problem 4E

In a piston assembly, the specifications for the clearance between piston rings and the cylinder wall are very tight. In a lot of assemblies, let X be the number with too little clearance and let Y be the number with too much clearance. The joint probability mass function of X and Y is given in the table below:

a. Find the marginal probability mass function of X.

b. Find the marginal probability mass function of Y.

c. Are X and Y independent? Explain.

d. Find μX and μY.

e. Find σX and σY.

f. Find Cov(X, Y).

g. Find ρ(X, Y).

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 7:

Given, the number with too little clearance is X and

The number with too much clearance is Y.

Then the joint probability mass function of X and Y is given in the table below.

                      y

Our goal is:

a). Find the probability mass function of X.        

b). Find the probability mass function of Y.

c). Are X and Y are not independent? Explain.

d). Find mean and .

e). Find .

f). Find Cov (X,Y).

g). Find .

a).

Now we have to find the probability mass function of X.

Here we are summing all the rows to find a probability mass function.

Then...
