Given:
The two random variables are X and Y.
The constant number is C.
Approach:
As the expected value of the constant is constant itself.
Therefore,
E(c)=c
Here, E(c) is the expected value of constant and c is any constant number.
Therefore, the relation E(c)=c is proved, if X and Y are random variables and c is any constant.
Conclusion:
Hence, the relation E(c)=c is proved, if X and Y random variables and c is any constant.

A boy is to sell lemonade to make some money to afford some holiday shopping. The capacity of the lemonade bucket is 1. At the start of each day, the amount of lemonade in the bucket is a random variable X, from which a random variable Y is sold during the day. The two random variables X and Y are jointly uniform.
Find and sketch the CDF and the pdf of Z which is the amount of lemonade remaining at the end of the day. Clearly indicate the range of Z
