(a) Show that E(X - μ) = 0, σ2 = E(X2) - μ2.
(b) Prove (10)-(12).
(c) Find all the moments of the uniform distribution on an interval α ≤ x ≤ b.
(d) The skewness ϒ of a random variable X is defined by
Show that for a symmetric distribution (whose third central moment exists) the skewness is zero.
(e) Find the skewness of the distribution with density f(x) = xe-x when x > 0 and f(x) = 0 otherwise. Sketch f(x).
(f) Find a nonsymmetric discrete distribution with 3 possible values, mean 0, and skewness 0.Distribution
The word "distribution" has several meanings in the financial world, most of them pertaining to the payment of assets from a fund, account, or individual security to an investor or beneficiary. Retirement account distributions are among the most...
