Problem 5.86

Suppose that Z is a standard normal random variable and that Y1 and Y2 are 2-distributed random variables with 1 and 2 degrees of freedom, respectively. Further, assume that Z, Y1, and Y2 are independent. a Define W = Z/ Y1. Find E(W) and V(W). What assumptions do you need about the value of 1? [Hint: W = Z(1/ Y1) = g(Z)h(Y1). Use Theorem 5.9. The results of Exercise 4.112(d) will also be useful.] b Define U = Y1/Y2. Find E(U) and V(U). What assumptions about 1 and 2 do you need? Use the hint from part (a).
