Question 18: a) Compute the moment generating function, MGF, of a normal random variable X with mean µ and standard deviation σ. b) Use your MGF from part a) to find the mean and variance of X.
A random variable X is U (a, b) with mean 1 and variance 3. Find and sketch the CDF and the pdf of Y = [X]. Clearly identify the range of Y.
Find the mean, variance and standard deviation for the random variable X: Random Variable X -2 1 3 P(X = x) 0.1 0.3 .6 Show the calculations that you need for each part. You will get no credit for using your calculator or Excel and only giving the answer. You should write out: mean = ........ (show how the mean is calculated) Vairance = .............. Standard Deviation = ................
