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 ! !
