His score on X has a N (54,36) distribution and his score on Y has a N (66 , 64) distribution. He will pass the examination if his total score is 100 or above. What is his probability of passing the examination? Assume X and Y are independent. 5. Prove the following results: a. If ² ~ ¶· ( ¸ , ¹ ) , then º² ~ ¶· ( ¸ , ¹ º ) for any º > 0 . b. If ² ~ ¶· ( » , 2 ) and ¼ ~ µ½¾ ( ¿ ) , then µ ² > ¿ 2 À = µ ( ¼ < » ) ....
