Therefore, W P n . 1. Suppose P ( X n = i ) = 6 3 + + n i n , for i = 1, 2, 3. Find the limiting distribution of X n . F X n ( x ) = g g g g g G g g g g g < + + < + + < 3 1 3 2 6 3 2 2 1 6 3 1 x x n i n x n i n x . () g g g g g G g g g g g < < < = 3 1 3 2 3 2 2 1 3 1 1 F X lim x x x x x n n . Then X X D n , where P ( X = i ) = 3 1 , for i = 1, 2, 3. 2. Let X n have p.d.f. f n ( x ) = n n x 2 1 1 1 + + , for 0 < x < 1, zero elsewhere. Find the limiting distribution of X n . F X n ( x ) = g g g g G g g g g < + + < 1 1 1 2 1 1 2 2 x x n n x x x . () g g g G g g g < < = 1 1 1 F X lim x x x x x n n . Then X X D n , where X has a Uniform distribution over ( 0, 1 ) . 3. 4.3.2 Let Y 1 denote the minimum of a random sample of size n from a distribution that has p.d.f. () ( )  = x e x f , < x < , zero elsewhere. Let Z n = n ( Y 1 ) . Investigate the limiting distribution of Z n . F Y 1 ( x ) = ( )  x n e 1 , x > . ( Recall problems 8 & 9 of Homework #7. ) F Z n ( z ) = P ( n ( Y 1 ) z ) = P ( Y 1 n z + ) = 1 e z , z > 0. Therefore, the limiting distribution of Z n is Exponential with mean 1. ( Exponential distribution with mean 1 is same as Gamma distribution with = 1, = 1. ) 4. 4.3.3 Let Y n denote the maximum ( the last order statistic ) of a random sample of size n from a distribution of the continuous type that has c.d.f. from a distribution of the continuous type that has c....
