Math 361, Problem set 7 Due 10/25/10 1. (1.9.6) Let the random variable X have E [ X ] = μ , E [( X - μ ) 2 ] = σ 2 and mgf M ( t ), - h < t < h . Show that E ± X - μ σ ² = 0 , E " ³ X - μ σ ´ 2 # = 1 and E ± exp ³ t ³ X - μ σ ´´² = e - μt/σ M ³ t σ ´ , - hσ < t < hσ. (Recall: exp( x ) = e x ). 2. (1.9.7) Show that the moment generating function of the random variable X having pdf f ( x ) = 1 3 for - 1 < x < 2, zero elsewhere is M ( t ) = µ e 2 t - e - t 3 t t 6 = 0 1 t = 0 3. (1.9.18) Find the moments of the distribution that has mfg M ( t ) = (1 - t ) - 3 , t < 1. Hint: Find the MacLaurin’s series for M ( t ). 4. (1.9.23) Consider k continuous-type distributions with the following char- acteristics: pdf f i ( x ), mean μ i and variance σ 2 i , i = 1 , 2 ,...,k . If c i 0, i = 1 ,...,k and c 1 + ··· + c k = 1, show that the mean and variance of the distribution having pdf
