let X have mass function\[ f_{x}(x)=(a/)x^{2} ;x=1,2,..... \] and Y have mass function \[ f_{y}(y) =(b/y^{2} ) y =\pm1,\pm2\] find a and b

is the first one \( a/x^2\)

use \[\sum_{k=1}^{\infty}\frac{1}{k^2}=\frac{\pi^2}{6}\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
so it will be \[ a \sum_{1}^{\infty }1/x^{2} =1\] \[a (pi/6)=1\] then a =6/pi

\[a=\frac{6}{\pi^2}\]

oops i've forgot squared

then for that one of finding b .how do we do it.
Zarkon
  • Zarkon
you are really just doing the sum twice so \[\sum_{k=-1}^{-\infty}\frac{1}{k^2}+\sum_{k=1}^{\infty}\frac{1}{k^2}=\frac{\pi^2}{6}+\frac{\pi^2}{6}=\frac{\pi^2}{3}\]

then b=3/pi^2
