Prelim II 2005 Solutions (1) For the mean, see Example 1.7 in Section 4.1 or use the fact that a gamma( n,λ ) is a sum of n independent exponential( λ ) random variables: E (gamma(7 )) = 7 X i =1 1 λ = 7 λ . For the variance, see Example 4.2 in Section 4.2. Note that when you integrate by parts, you must evaluate a limit which is easy to evaluate using either l’Hospital’s Rule, or the fact that e x grows faster than any polynomial.

(3) When 0 < z < 3, f X + Y ( z ) = Z z 2 x 9 2( z-x ) 9 dx. When 3 < z < 6, f X + Y ( z ) = Z 3 z-3 2 x 9 2( z-x ) 9 dx....
