Statistics 400 Random Sample Mathematical Expectation Definition: If f(x1,x2) is the p.m.f. of discrete random variables X1 and X2. Then the mathematical expectation or the expected value of function u(X1,X2) E[u(X1,X2)]= ∑∑ ) , ( ) , ( 2 1 2 1 x x f x x u The random variables X1 and X2 are independent if f(x1,x2)=f 1 (x1)f 2 (X2) And if u(X1,X2)=u1(X1)u2(X2) E[u(X1,X2)]= ∑∑ ) , ( ) , ( 2 1 2 1 x x f x x u = ∑∑ ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( 2 2 1 1 2 2 1 1 x f x f x u x u = ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( 2 2 2 2 1 1 1 1 x f x u x f x u =E[u(X1)]E[u(X2)] Some Rules for Means: 1.

Unformatted text preview: same, the collection of the two random variables X1 and X2 is called a random sample of size 2 from the distribution. If the distribution of the independent random variables X1, X2, …,Xn is the same, the collection of the two random variables X1, X2, …,Xn is called a random sample of size n from the distribution.
