Question

I need an easy to understand solution with a thorough explanation. I have no good background in probability. I hope you will provide me with a very good solution, Thank you very much help_outlineImage Transcriptionclose1.

Step 1

Find the condition expectation help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseFrom the given information, X| Y = y Poi sson (y) with Y~ Exp(a) and ey The probability distribution for X|Y = y is P(X|Y = y) ,x 0,1,2.... with Expected х! = E(X|Y= y) = y. The probability distribution for random variable Y is value as f(y)ae >0 with expected value as E(Y) The condition expectation E(X| Y = y) is, E(X|Y-y) E(Xx|Y= y)xE(Y) 1 — ух— у Thus, the condition expectation E(X|Y = y) is fullscreen
