1. Suppose that for any positive integer n , the n th moment of a random variable X , is given by E ( X n ) = ( n + 1)! 2 n . Obtain a closed form expression for ψ ( ω ), the characteristic function of X . 2. Let X be a a continuous RV with the probability density function f ( x ) = 6 x (1 - x ), if 0 x 1 and 0 elsewhere. (a) Find the characteristic function of X . (b) Using the characteristic function, ±nd E ( X ). 3. Using the moment-generating function of a poisson random variable X with parameter λ , ±nd E ( X ) and V ar ( X ). 4. Let ψ X ( ω ) = 1 / (1 + ) be the moment-generating function of a ran- dom variable X . Find the moment-generating function of the random variable Y = 2 X + 1. 5. Let the joint probability mass function of two jointly distributed dis- crete RVs X and Y be p ( i, j ) = b k ( i + j ) if
