STAT*3100 F14
A sample final
Assume for the purposes of this exam that I have given you all necessary pmfs and pdfs, and necessary moment
generating functions. (I do not expect you to memorize all of the moment functions. I may ask you to derive
one, so you need to know what it is, and how to derive it for the common distributions.)
1. (3 parts worth 2 marks each)
Suppose:
P(A)=0.44,P(B)=0.29,P(C)=0.31
P(AB)=0.12,P(AC)=0.14,P(BC)=0.05
and P(ABC)=0.04.
(a) What is P(B(AC))
(b) What is P(A(BC))
(c) Are the two events CBand ABindependent?
2. Suppose XiN(µi, σ2
i),i= 1,2, . . . , n. Using whatever means you feel appropriate, derive
the distribution of Pn
i=1 aiXi. Include the parameters of the distribution, and the support of the
density function. (Assume that you have been given the moment generating function of the normal
distribution.)
3. Suppose XExp(θ). Using the cumulative distribution function technique, derive the distribu-
tion of Y=X
2+ 8. Make sure you include what range of values Ycan take on (i.e. the support
of fY(y)).
4. Suppose XUnif(0,1). Using the transformation method, derive the distribution of Y=ln(ln(X)).
Make sure you include what range of values Ycan take on (i.e. the support of fY(y)).
5. Suppose XExp(2),Yχ2(1),ZN(0,1), and X,Y, and Zare independent.
(a) What is the joint distribution of X,Y, and Z?
(b) What is the moment generating function of X+Y+Z? (If you have been given the MGFs
of X,Y, and Z.)
(c) What is E(XY Z)?
(d) What is E(XY Z2)?
6. Prove that the addition rule holds under conditioning. That is, show that
P(AB|C) = P(A|C) + P(B|C)P(AB|C).
7. If XGamma(3,4), show that f(x)is increasing in xfor 0< x < 8, decreasing in xfor x > 8,
and has a maximum at x= 8.
8. If XGamma(α, β)where α > 0, β > 0derive E(X3).
9. Derive an expression for V ar(XY)in terms of V ar(X),V ar(Y), and Cov(X, Y ).
10. Show that if XiExp(θ),i= 1, . . . , n, then Pn
i=1 XiGamma(n, θ).

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!

Balancing social life With academics can be difficult, that is why I'm so glad that OneClass is out there where I can find the top notes for all of my classes. Now I can be the all-star student I want to be.

As a college student living on a college budget, I love how easy it is to earn gift cards just by submitting my notes.
