Given the moment- generating function MX(t) = e3t+ 8t2 , find the moment- generating function of the random variable Z = 1/4 (X – 3), and use it to determine the mean and the variance of Z. If X and Y have the joint probability distribution f(–1, 0) = 0, f(–1, 1) = 14 , f(0, 0) = 16 , f(0, 1) = 0, f(1, 0) = 1 12 , and f(1, 1) = 12 , show that (a) cov(X, Y) = 0; (b) The two random variables are not ...With reference to Exercise 3.74 on page 100, find the conditional mean and the conditional variance of Y given X = 1/4.
