Furthermore let C ov X,Y = σ XY , C ov X,Z = σ XZ , C ov Y,Z = σ Y Z Let W = aX + bY + cZ , where a,b,c are constants. (a) find the E W (b) find the C ov aX,bY + cZ by only using the formula that C ov X,Y = E ± X - E X ²± Y - E Y ² (c) find the V ar W by only using the following formula V ar W = E W - E W 2 Question-2 [10]Suppose E X = 2 , E Y = 3 , E Z
