Define Co – Variance:**

If X and Y are two two r.v.s then co –
variance between them is defined as Cov (X, Y) = E {X – E (X)} {Y – E (Y)}

(ie)
Cov (X, Y) = E (XY) – E(X) E (Y)

**18.****State
the properties of Co – variance; **

1. If
X and Y are two independent variables, then Cov (X,Y) = 0. But the

Converse need not be true

2.Cov (aX, bY) = ab Cov (X,Y)

3.Cov (X + a,Y +b) = Cov (X,Y)

5.Cov(aX+b,cY+d)=acCov(X,Y)

6.Cov

Then E(U)=aE(X)+b and E(V)= cE(Y)+d
U-E(U)= a[X-E(X)] and V-E(V)=c[Y-E(Y)]

Cov(aX+b,cY+d)=
Cov(U,V)=E[{U-E(U)}{V-E(V)}] = E[a{X-E(X)} c{Y-E(Y)}] =ac
E[{X-E(X)}{Y-E(Y)}]=acCov(X,Y)

*Y*, *X* − *Y* ]=
*E*[(*X*

**24.****X
and Y are independent random variables with variances 2 and 3.Find the variance
3X+4Y. **

**Answer:**

Given
var(X) = 2, var(Y) = 3

We
know that var(aX+Y) = a^{2}var(X)
+ var(Y)

And var(aX+bY) = a^{2}var(X) + b^{2}var(Y)

var(3X+4Y)
= 3^{2}var(X) + 4^{2}var(Y) = 9(2) + 16(3) = 66
