If X,Y are two rvs, we define their covariance ( ) ( )( ) [ ] ( ) ( ) Y E , X E Where Y X E Y , X COV 2 1 2 1 = = - - = Th.

X be n indep rv s each having the same mean and same variance 2 . Let n X X X X n 2 1 + + = be their sample mean. We define the sample variance as ( ) 2 i n 1 i 2 X X 1 n 1 S-- = & = Note 2 S is also a r.v. ( ) 2 2 = S E Proof. Read it on page 179. Simulation To simulate the values taken by a continuous r.v. X, we have to use the following theorem. Theorem Let X be a continuous r.v. with density f(x) and cumulative distribution function F(x). Let ) ( X F U = . Then U is a r.v. having uniform distribution on (0,1). In other words, U is a random number. Thus to simulate the value taken by X, we take a random no U from the table 7 (Now you must put a decimal point before the no) And solve for X, the equation ( ) U X F = 103 Example 24 Let X have uniform density on ( ) , . Simulate the values of X using the 3-digit random numbers. 937, 133, 753, 503, .. Solution Since X has uniform density on ( ) , its density is ( ) & < < =- elsewhere n x f 1 Thus the cumulative distribution function is ( ) & > < =-- x x x x F x 1 ( ) & & = - - = X means...
