    Conditional Expectation Question (Probability Theory)

    Homework Statement (Question is #6 on p.171 in An Introduction to Probability and Statistics by Ruhatgi & Saleh) Let X have PMF Pλ{X=x} = λxe-λ/x!, x=0,1,2.... and suppose that λ is a realization of a RV Λ with PDF f(λ)=e-λ, λ>0. Find E(e-Λ|X=1) The Attempt at a Solution The...
