To Explain:Linearity of expectation of random variables.

Answers (1)

n random variables \(X_{1},X_{2},....,X_{n}\)
Formula used:
\(E(X_{1},+ X_{2},...,+ X_{n})=E(X_{1})+E(X_{2})+...+E(X_{n})\)
Linearity means additivity over the variables. Thus (1) expresses the fact that expectation is additive over the random variables, in other words, expectation is a linear function.

The expectation of the number of people getting their correct hats in the hat check problem, using linearity of expectations.
n persons receive n hats in a random fashion.
Formula used: By linearity of expectation function,
If \(X_{1},X_{2},...,X_{n}\) are random variables, then
\(E(X_{1},+X_{2}+,...+X_{n})=E(X_{1})+E(X_{2})+...+ E(X_{n})\) (2)
