  • Start date
Hey guys, I'm having a bit of a problem with this question...

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
If X and Y have a bivariate normal distribution with [tex]m_X=m_y=0[/tex] and [tex]\sigma_X=\sigma_Y=1[/tex], find:

a) E(X|Y=1) and Var(X|Y=1)
b) Pr(X+Y>0.5)

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution
Apologies, but I don't seem to know where to start on this one.
