?12 , and Y is also normal with mean m2 and variance ? 2 . If Z is a new random variable

defined by Z = X + Y , use characteristic functions to show that Z is also normally

distributed, and compute its probability density, mean and variance in terms of m1, m2, ?12 ,

It turns out that Joe?s grade (G) on the exam is helped more by his working than by his

sleeping, and that his grade is described by

G = S + 2W

a). Find and make a labeled sketch of the probability density function fG ( g) for all values

of G.

?

b). Find the conditional density of G given that Joe?s grade G was less than 1.

E(Xi ) = 3 and variance ? 2 i= 0.25 . 100 iPods are selected independently and their total

Using the central limit theorem, find the approximate probability that Y is within 4 years of

its mean E(Y ) .
