If two random variables X and Y are independent with marginal pdfs \(f_x(x)= 2x, 0\leq x \leq 1\ and\ f_y(y)=1,0\leq y \leq 1\)
Calculate \(P(Y|X>2)\)

Step 1
From the provided information, the marginal probability distribution of both the random variables X and Y are given.
Since both the variables are independent, the condition probability distribution of Y given X is equal to the marginal probability distribution of Y that is,
\(P(Y|X)=P(Y)\)
\(=f_{y}(y), 0\leq y \leq 1\)
Step 2
The required probability can be calculated as:
\(P(Y|X>2)=P(Y>2)=0\)
Thus, the probability is 0 because the range of Y is from 0 to 1 only.
