    can a random variable donimant

    Given two random variables x and y, and a constant c

    What conditions are needed to make:

     Prob( w x + y < c ) \approx Prob( w x < c ), \text{  for }  w \rightarrow \infty

    Can anyone help?

    I think E(x) < \infty and E(y) < \infty might do. Is this right?

    tks!!!!

    1 I assume, for all c?
    2 Do you want one or two tilde's?
    One means that the limit of the ratio is 1
    Two means that the limit of the ratio is not infinite, O(1).
