Hi everybody,

I encountered this to me very confusing problem in the context of confidence intervals and pivotal quantities.

How can I compute the mean and the variance (marked yellow) with this information below...

Many thanks once more!

Hello,

The only random stuff in $\displaystyle \hat\theta_2$ is $\displaystyle x_i$. So if you treat everything else as a constant, it's pretty easy to compute the mean and the variance !

After that, it's just a matter of computing double sums :)

Let's try it ! - Jan 17th 2012, 07:25 AMMarmyRe: Mean and Variance
Thanks, I think I found out now!
