If U , V , X , and Y are any random variables, show that cov( U + V,X + Y ) = cov( U,X ) + cov( V,X ) + cov( U,Y ) + cov( V,Y ) 42. Suppose X 1 , X 2 , X 3 are IID with mean and variance 2 . Calculate the mean vector and variance matrix of the random vector Y = Y 1 Y 2 Y 3 = X 1 X 2 X 2 X 3 X 3 X 1 43. Suppose X and Y are independent random variables, with means X and Y , respectively, and variances 2 X and 2 Y , respectively. Calculate E ( X 2 Y 2 ) in terms of X , Y , 2 X , and 2 Y . 44.
