a) If $Z_1$ and $Z_2$ are independent standard normal random variables, what is the distribution of $Z^2_1 +Z^2_2$?

b) Let $X$ and $Y$ be independent exponential random variables with mean $3$. What is the c.d.f of $X/Y$ ?

I understand that when two r.v. are independent, you can say that the joint c.d.f is the product of the two c.d.f.. But after that I'm lost with the squared r.v. or $X/Y$.

  • $\begingroup$ Yes. The cdf is the integral of the pdf. $\endgroup$ – endlessend2525 Nov 28 '16 at 19:25
