No matter how many temporary workers there are on a given day, the numbers of transactions completed on a given day by each of these temporary workers are independent Poisson random variables with mean 32. Let X denote the number of transactions completed by the temporary workers on a given day. Find ] [ X E and ) var( X . 3. If the random variables X and Y are identically distributed, not necessarily independent, with finite variance, find ) , cov( Y X Y X + . 4. Let 3 2 1 , , X X X be independent and identically distributed continuous random variables. Compute }.  { 3 2 2 1 X X X X P &lt; &gt;...
