# Random Variables

##
Expected Value

compute the expected value of a random variable

expected value of |x|^3, x standard normal
X~Poisson(7.3), EV[3X^4-7]
E[x^2] where x is exponentially distributed
expectation of y^2+2y-1 for y having a gamma distribution
##
Probability

compute the probability of an event

P[-1.2<X<2.3] for X~student t with 12 dof
prob x>5 for x binomial with n=14 and p=.36
x chisquare with 9 dof, prob 3x-5<7
prob X<16 for X~geometric with p=0.1
compute a conditional probability

probability that x^2>2 given that x>1, x~standard normal
