Page 2 of 6 2. (7) Determine the mean and variance of a random variable with the following moment-generating function: M X ( t ) = e t ( 7 + 8 t ) = exp [ t ( 7 + 8 t ) ]. M X ( t ) = exp [ t ( 7 + 8 t ) ] = exp ( 7 t + 8 t 2 ). Normal distribution: M X ( t ) = 2 2 2 ± t t e + . X has a Normal distribution with μ = 7 and σ 2 / 2 = 8. E ( X ) = μ = 7 , Var ( X ) = σ 2 = 16 . OR M X ' ( t ) = ( 7 + 16 t ) exp ( 7 t + 8 t 2 ). E ( X ) = M X ' ( 0 ) = 7 . M X " ( t ) = 16 exp ( 7 t + 8 t 2 ) + ( 7 + 16 t ) 2 exp ( 7 t + 8 t 2 ). E ( X 2 ) = M X " ( 0 ) = 65. Var ( X ) = 65 – 7 2 = 16 . 3. (6) A machine fastens plastic screw-on caps onto containers of motor oil. If the machine applies more torque than the cap can withstand, the cap will break. Both the torque
