So I have a couple of questions regarding marginal, conditional and joint probability mass functions that I need help with. I'll start off with the first question and see if someone can help me with this. I appreciate any help given.
A box contains 4 dice labelled 1,...,4. The die labelled i has i white faces and (6-i) black faces, i=1,...,4. A die is chosen at random from the box and rolled. The random variables X and Y are defined as follows:
X=the number labelling the chosen die
Y={0 if the face showing is black; 1 if the face showing is white
I must construct a table showing the values of the marginal probability mass function for X and a separate table showing the conditional pmf for Y given X=x, for general x.
Now the way I have set the answer out is I have a table with one column and the other column with x values of 1,...,4 and each as a quarter. Then for the other table I have columns of x=1, x=2,..., x=4 and then the two rows of y=0 and y=1 with in the top left of the table. Then the values of:
---- x=1 x=2 x=3 x=4
y=0 5/6 2/3 1/2 1/3
y=1 1/6 1/3 1/2 2/3
Sorry if this is hard to understand but is this correct?
