Sorry, I have another question! ;D
I'm not quite sure how to do conditional probability for exponential probability distributions and I'm stuck on part c) of attached question.
Hopefully, that's my last question for now.
Much appreciated! :D


Recall that:
\[ p_{x|y} = \frac{p_{X,Y} (x,y)}{p_X (x)} \]

Let's think about what this means. We know that something being greater than 5 AND greater than 10, really just means it's greater than 10. So this allows us to find \( p_{X,Y} (x,y) \)  (use your result from step a)

Let me know if you're still confused and I'm happy to step you through it but it would be great to see your working/thoughts :)
