## Introduction to Mathematical StatisticsAn exceptionally clear and impeccably accurate presentation of statistical applications and more advanced theory. Included is a chapter on the distribution of functions of random variables as well as an excellent chapter on sufficient statistics. More modern technology is used in considering limiting distributions, making the presentations more clear and uniform. |

Let Xu X2, . . . , X„ be a random sample of size n from a distribution with mean p

and

**variance a2**. Show that E(S2) = (n — 1)<72/h, where S2 is the variance of therandom sample. Hint: Write S2 = (1/«) J (Z, - /i)2 - (jf - n)2. i 4.118. Let Xx and A"2

Thus X and Y are normally and independently distributed with means /i, and /i2

and

difference X — Y is normally distributed with mean /i, — fi2 and

Thus X and Y are normally and independently distributed with means /i, and /i2

and

**variances a2**//n and q^/w^respectively. In accordance with Section 4.7, theirdifference X — Y is normally distributed with mean /i, — fi2 and
