(15 points) (a). If E (3 X ) = var ( X/ 2) and var (2 X ) = 3, find (i). E [(2 + X ) 2 ] and (ii). var (4 + 3 X ). (b). Suppose that X and W are independent and that var ( W ) = 7, E (( X- W )( X + W )) = 100, E (3 W ) = 30, E ( X 3 ) = 60, and E ( X + W ) = 12. Compute (i) var ( X ) and (ii) cov ( X 3 ,W 2 ).....
