Let X1,....,Xn be a random sample from a Poisson( ) distribution.

Find the limiting distribution of .

I found the mean to be E( ) =

but then i don't know which method to use.

Thank you

The square is a continuous function.

Since

we have

and I don't understand what this.... means

I guess zero as n goes to infinity
