Let the random variable X have the pmf f(x) = (|x| + 1)2 9 , x = 1, 0, 1. Compute E(X), E(X2), and E(3X2 2X + 4).

Section - 10.3 Modelling Linear Relationships with Randomness Present When the relationship between x and y is not deterministic, statistical procedures must be applied. For any statistical procedures, the associated formulas are valid only under speci▯c as- sumptions. The set of assumptions in simple linear regression are a mathematical description of the relationship between x and y. Such a set of assumptions is known as Model Simple Linear Regression Model: 1.
