you're missing a ( ) I fixed it below, I don't know how to do the red highlight stuff here. Originally Posted by Flipz4226 and are independent random variables such that ~ for each . Use moment generating functions to determine the distribution of So far I have = = I'm not sure what kind of distribution this looks like, if I'm even doing it right. so the sum of indep poissons is a poisson (as I said in class today) clearly the mean of the sum is the sum of the means
