Problem 7

For two independent measurements x = bland x = b2 , the best x should be some weighted average x = ab i + (1 - a)b2 . When bi and b2 have mean zero and variances al and af, the variance of x will be P = a2al + (1 - a )2af. Choose the number a that minimizes P: dP / da = O. Show that this a gives the x in equation (2) which the text claimed is best, using weights WI = l/al and W2 = l/a2'
