The fact that the value at a single point may be arbitrarily chosen takes care of fY (0).

P (P ≤ x | Xn = k) = = x 0 P (Xn = k | P = y) · fP (y) dy P (Xn = k) x n 0 k y k (1 − y)n−k · 1 dy = (n + 1) 1 n+1 n k x y k (1 − y)n−k dy . , a β(k + 1, n + 1 − k)-distribution. For k = n we obtain in particular (or, by direct computation) fP |Xn =n (x) = (n + 1)xn , 0 < x < 1. It follows that P (P > 1 − ε | Xn = n) = 1 − (1 − ε)n+1 → 1 as n → ∞ for all ε > 0. This means that if we know that there were many heads in a row then we also know that p is close to 1 and thus that it is very likely that the next toss will yield another head.

What is the probability that the run the first day lasted longer than the run the second day? 16. A certain chemistry problem involves the numerical study of a lognormal random variable X. Suppose that the software package used requires the input of E Y and Var Y into the computer (where Y is normal and such that X = eY ), but that one knows only the values of E X and Var X. Find expressions for the former mean and variance in terms of the latter. 17. Let X and Y be independent Exp(a)-distributed random variables.
