Let X and Y be independent random variables which have the same distribution 1 (1) Calculate SOL: ∑ . ∑ 1 , , 0,1, ∑ . (2) Show that SOL: , , ∑ , 1 1 ∑ 0,1, 1 , ∑ ∑ 1 1 4. Suppose n cards numbered 1,2, , n are laid out at random in a row. We say a match occurs at position i if the ith card appears in the ith position. Let X 1 if there is a match position I and X 0 otherwise. Let S denote the number of matches then S X X X. (a) Compute E X , V X , and COV X , X . SOL: E X PX 1 ! ! VX COV X , X ! !
