Problem 28E

Let X, Y, and Z be jointly distributed random variables. Prove that Cov(X + Y, Z) = Cov(X, Z) + Cov(Y, Z). (Hint: Use Equation 2.69.)

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 1:

Given  X,Y, and Z be the jointly distributed random variable.

Our goal is :

a). We need to prove that Cov(X+Y,Z)=Cov(X,Z)+Cov(Y,Z).

a).

Now we need to prove that Cov(X+Y,Z)=Cov(X,Z)+Cov(Y,Z).

Here

Here we multiply X and Y by Z.

Then

and
