Let (X, Y) be a random vector such that f(yx) = 1/x if y = 1, 2, . . . ,x ..........= 0 elsewhere. (For any positive integer x). Also let X has the following p.m.f. f(x) = 1/3 if x = 1, 2, 3 ......= 0 elsewhere. How to calculate E(Y), P(X = 1Y = 2), and E(XY = 2)? Thanks!

The random vector$\displaystyle f(yx)$ is a harmonic series when x = infinity, but it is finite if x is finite and can be normalised to form a p.m.f. if x is known. 2. What values can x be? 3. $\displaystyle E(Y) = \sum y P(y)$
