Jensen’s inequality, see 4.3.23, implies that in general E (1 /X ) 1 /EX with equality if and only if X is constant. 4.3.7 Let

Unformatted text preview: X i = 1 if the i-th draw is an Ace, = 0 otherwise. Then ∑ 13 i =1 X i is the number of Aces drawn, so EX = 13 EX i = 13 · (4 / 52) = 1. 4.3.17 N-1 is geometric(1/2) since it is the waiting time for a child diﬀerent from the ﬁrst one. EN=1+2=3....
