They are indep by inspection.

Both X and Y are exponential with mean 1.

So E(X)=1 and

INFINITY since you forgot the negative in the exponent.

DID you read my previous post? - Dec 17th 2009, 11:23 PMzorroI m stuck

I'll fix this, but there is to reason to do it this way...

you should know that the derivative and integral of is - Dec 18th 2009, 01:48 AMzorroNow i am again stuck
