    (a) Find V ar(X) and Var(Y).
    (b) Find Cov(X; Y).
    (c) Find the correlation of X and Y.
    (d) Find the conditional distribution of X given that Y= 3

    2. Relevant equations

    Trying to check my answers to see if i am correct.


    3. The attempt at a solution

    a. Var(x) = 0.8 Var(Y) = 1
    b. 0.4
    c. 0.1414
    d. 1/5;1/5;3/5

    Thanks
