3) The ratio of two random variables, X 1 and X 2 is not equal to the sum of the ratios of the expected values of those same two random variables. 9c) (4) When two random variables are not statistically independent, the expected value of the product of two random variables is not equal to the product of two expected values. 9e) (5) The fifth property associated with expected values of random variables is that the expected value of a random variable multiplied by a constant is equal to the constant times the expected value of the random variable.

2 Defining random variables The concept of random variables is central to the understanding of probability. A random variable, sometimes referred to as a stochastic variable, is a variable in which the value the variable is observed to take is determined as part of an experiment. That is to say, we do not know the exact value the variable will be observed to take with any certainty a priori. The two preceding illustrations provide examples of random variables. In the case of rolling a single die, the exact outcome of each roll cannot be known before the roll takes place (though the probabilities for each outcome can be calculated with certainty).

In practice, one can abbreviate the summation as follows: n X i or simply Xi i=1 The summation operator has several useful properties: 1. The summation of a constant term (note we drop the subscript i for constant terms): n k = k + k + · · · + k = nk i=1 3 For example, where n = 3 and k = 4, 4 = 4 + 4 + 4 = 3 × 4 = 12 i=1 2. The summation of a constant term multiplied by a variable: n k X i = k X 1 + k X 2 + · · · + k X n = k(X 1 + X 2 + · · · + X n ) i=1 n =k Xi i=1 For example, where k = 3 and X 1 = 2, X 2 = 3, and X 3 = 4 n n X i = 27 3X i = (3 × 2) + (3 × 3) + (3 × 4) = 3(2 + 3 + 4) = 3 i=1 i=1 3.
