    Expectation of random variable

    Hi, How to prove that $E[X]=\displaystyle\int_0^{\infty}P(X>t)dt$ Answer: $But E[x]=\displaystyle\int_0^\infty xf(x)dx$ How to proceed further? How to arrive at L.H.S.?

    Probability density function of sum 3 dependent random variables?

    Suppose we have s = x+y+z and x,y and z are dependent random variables. Can I use this approach to find probability density function of S? first find CDF of S: $F_{S}(s)=P(S<=s)=\int_{-\infty}^{+\infty}dx \int_{-\infty}^{s-x}dy \int_{-\infty}^{s-x-y}f_{X,Y,Z}(x,y,z)dz$ and then differentiate it...

    Random sample Poisson distribution

    Hello, I was hoping someone could help explain how to do this problem. I am pretty stuck. Thanks! X1....X50 is a random sample with Poisson distribution with lamba = 5. What is P(4.5 <= Xbar <= 5.3)?

    Function of uniform random variable.

    Hello this is the problem I'm working on. a voltage X is uniformly distributed in the set {-3,-2,-1,0,1,2,3,4} A. Find the pdf and CDF of the random variable X. for this question I found the pdf as [[pdf=1/7 for -3<=X<=4 and 0 else]] also I found the CDF as [[ CDF= (X+3)/7 for...

    Finding the covariance of two random variables X and Y

    I understand all the steps but i don't know where the marginal density function for g(x) and h(y) (highlighted in yellow) came from. Can someone explain?

    Matching moments of distributions of a random variable x and a transformation x1=x^2

    My statistics have become a bit rusty. I am puzzled with a problem. Let assume that x is a random variable and can either x ~ Normal(0,1) or x ~ Uniform(a,b) From Normal : E(x) = 0, V(x) = 1 From Uniform : E(x) = 1 / (a+b), V(x) = 12 / ( (b-a)^(2) ) If we want to match the mean and the...

    Show that a random process is WSS

    Can anyone explain the last step in the solution, the delta function. I know this should be super obvious but i just cant figure it out right now... Im thinking you need to integrate and the sines are zero...

    Proving the random walk??

    Usually when one monitories a stock market, one wishes to find a trend in order to be able to predict the price and make some money in the process. My problem is the opposite. I have pattern that resembles a random walk, it is a set of values (40-50 values) measured at different time points...

    Normalization of Two Mean Random Variables

    Hello, I am dealing with the following question: My question is, once we Find X_1 - X_2 do I treat their normal distribution as, say X_3 and do the usual standardization procedure? I have attached my attempt at the problem, could someone please verify if I'm on the right track. Thank you...

    Find the density of the random variable Y=X^2

    Find the density of the random variable Y=X^2, if the random variable X follows a standard normal distribution. I think I should use mgf to solve it is that right ? what should I do to start ?
