Question

Define the nth moment of the random variable X. Dene the nth central moment

of a random variable X. Finally, dene the moment generating function, M(t).

Write down a few terms of the series expansion of a general M(t). Why is the

series expansion relevant in terms of calculating moments?

Answer #1

**solution;** **from the given
data,**

**nth moment: The nth moment
of a random variable X is defined as**

**nth Central moment: The nth
central moment of a random variable X is defined
as**

**Moment generating function:
The moment generating function(MGF) M(t) of a random variable X is
defined as:**

**M(t) exist if there exist a
positive constant 'a' such that**

**M(t) is finite for all t €
[-a , a].**

**Expansion of
M(t):**

**we
can see in the expansion of mgf coefficients of
is the rth moment of random variable X that's why series expansion
of MGF is relevant in terms of calculating moments.**
**please give a like, thank
you**

Consider a random variable X following the exponential
distribution X ~ f(x), where f(x) = ae^( -ax) for x > 0 and 0
otherwise, a > 0. Derive its moment-generating function MX(t)
and specify its domain (where it is defined or for what t does the
integral exist). Use it to compute the first four non-central
moments of X and then derive the general formula for the nth
non-central moment for any positive integer n. Also, write down the
expression...

Suppose that the moment generating function of a random variable
X is of the form MX (t) = (0.4e^t + 0.6)8 . What is the moment
generating function, MZ(t), of the random variable Z = 2X + 1?
(Hint: think of 2X as the sum two independent random variables).
Find E[X]. Find E[Z ]. Compute E[X] another way - try to recognize
the origin of MX (t) (it is from a well-known distribution)

steps. :) Thanks!

The moment generating function for the random variable X is
MX(t) = (e^t/ (1−t )) if |t| < 1. Find the variance of X.

Question 1: Compute the moment generating
function M(t) for a Poisson random variable.
a) Use M’(t) to compute E(X)
b) Use M’’(t) to compute Var(X)

The random variable X has moment generating function
ϕX(t)=(0.44e^t+1−0.44)^8
Provide answers to the following to two decimal places
(a) Evaluate the natural logarithm of the moment generating
function of 3X at the point t=0.4.
