Random variables X 1 , …, X 50 are independent with the following distributions: X 1 , …, X 10 U[0, 1] X 11 , …, X 20 N(1, 0.1) X 21 , …, X 30 LN(3, 0.2) X 31 , …, X 40 Ex[0.4] X 41 , …, X 50 Ga(2, 0.2) where U[0, 1] is the uniform distribution in [0,1], N( m , σ 2 ) and LN( m , σ 2 ) are the normal and lognormal distributions with mean value m and variance σ 2 , Ex[ m ] is the exponential distribution with mean value m , and Ga( n , m ) is the gamma distribution that results from adding n iid exponential variables with distribution Ex[ m ]. Find in approximation the 50 probability that Y = " X i exceeds 56.
