Let X 1, X 2, …, X n be a sequence of i. i. d. r. v. s with E (X i) = 0 and V (X i) = 1. Show that the sequence Equation tends to 1 in probability.

Explanation

we have known that Equation is the sample variance of the sequence. The mean is

The convergence in probability is

Equation

Using Chebychev’s inequality

Describe in Detail

The ith box contains 2i white balls and 6 - 2i black balls, i = 1 (1) 3. A fair die is cast once. 3 balls are taken at random from box 1, box 2 or box 3 according as the die shows up face 1, any of 2 and 3, or any of 4, 5 and 6, respectively. Let X denotes the number of white balls drawn. Find E (X).

Explanation

E 1 = Box 1 2 white and 4 black when the fair dice value is x 1 =1

E 2 =Box 2 4 white and 2 black when the fair dice value is x 2 = (2, 3)

E 3 =Box 3 6 white when the fair dice value… (59 more words) …

Describe in Detail

Items from a large lot are examined one by one until r items with a rare manufacturing defect are found. The proportion of items with this type of defect in the lot is known to be p. Let X denote the number of items needed to be examined. Derive the probability distribution of X, and find E (X).

Explanation

In this question, the sample size is n = x+r given and each trail only two possible outcomes. The probability of defect is same for each trail and trails are independent. The experiment continues until r defectives.

In the given question the number of manufacturing defect are fixed which is… (70 more words) …

Let (X, Y) have a bivariate distribution with finite moments upto order 2. Show that

(i) E (E (X|Y) ) =E (X)

(ii) V (X) ≥ V (X|Y)

Explanation

Let (X, Y) have a bivariate distribution with density function id f (x, y). The conditional expectation is define as

Equation

Note that E (X|y) is a function of y. If we allow y to vary over the support of Y, then E (X|y) as a function of the random… (66 more words) …
