We would like to know the expected distance between both of them. The position of robot1 can be expressed by two random variables X1 and Y1; the position of robot2 by X2 and Y2. X1, X2 are uniformly distributed over [0, 12] Y1, Y2 are uniformly distributed over [0, 20] We can define a new random variable D expressing the distance between both robots by D = sqrt( (X2 - X1)2 + (Y2 - Y1)2 ). What is the expected value of X1, i.e. E(X1)? How can the expected value of D be determined, either by an equation or approximated on a computer perhaps?
