Unformatted text preview: Math 151, Spring 2011 Jo Hardin, HW #11 Homework due on Thursday, April 7th , start of class. 1. DeGroot (3rd or 4th ed.), section 4.4: # 3, 4, 6, 9, 12 2. DeGroot (3rd or 4th ed.), section 4.6: # 3, 5, 6, 10 3. Let X and Y be identically distributed independent random variables such that the mgf of X+Y is: M (t) = 0.09e−2t + 0.24e−t + 0.34 + 0.24et + 0.09e2t −∞<t<∞ Calculate P (X ≤ 0). 4. We can show that for Y = g (X ) (some nonlinear function) 12 E (Y ) ≈ g (µX ) + σx g (µX ) 2 (through a Taylor series expansion of g about µX ). √ Let Y = g (X ) = X , and consider two cases: X ∼ U nif (0, 1) and X ∼ U nif (1, 2). (Note: you can look up the mean and variance of a uniform in the back cover of your book.) For which distribution is the approximation better? Explain. ...
