Let Y = X 1 + X 2 + ··· + X n . Derive the following formula. 1. E ( Y ) = E ( X 1 ) + E ( X 2 ) + ··· + E ( X n ) 2. Var ( Y ) = n i =1 Var ( X i ) + 2 n i =1 n j = i +1 Cov ( X i ,X j ). Question 2: Problem 5.8. Question 3: Toss an unfair 6-faced dice 100 times. And suppose the probability of each face is { 2 / 7 , 1 / 7 , 1 / 7 , 1 / 7 , 1 / 7 , 1 / 7 } respectively. We can also assume that each toss is independent. Find/approximate the probability that the total sum of all 100 outcomes is

Note: Designing the sample/poll size is an important subject in statistics. You want a sample size that is not too large but still gives you a suciently accurate estimate, which is exactly the purpose of this problem. You should ask yourself why it is important to nd a good sample size, especially in the drug testing industry? Hint: The importance of a minimum sample/poll size can be measured in dollars. Question 6: Problem 5.29....
