A certain scale has an uncertainty of 3 g and a bias of 2 g.
a) A single measurement is made on this scale. What are the bias and uncertainty in this measurement?
b) Four independent measurements are made on this scale. What are the bias and uncertainty in the average of these measurements? c) Four hundred independent measurements are made on this scale. What are the bias and uncertainty in the average of these measurements?
d) As more measurements are made, does the uncertainty get smaller, get larger, or stay the same?
e) As more measurements are made, does the bias get smaller, get larger, or stay the same?

Step 1
"Since you have posted a question with multiple sub-parts, we will solve first three sub-parts for you. To get remaining sub-part solved please repost the complete question and mention the sub-parts to be solved."
a)
If a single measurement is made on this scale, then the bias and the uncertainty remains the same. That is, the bias is 2g and the uncertainty is 3g.
Step 2
b)
If four independent measurements are made on this scale, then the uncertainty in the measurement is normally distributed and its value becomes half but the bias remains the same.
Step 3
c)
If four hundred independent measurements are to be made, then the uncertainty becomes,
n=400=20
Thus, the four hundred independent measurements were to be made then the uncertainty becomes 20 times smaller but the bias remains the constant.

I am not really sure if my answer is correct. Please enlighten me. Thank you.
The difference between the measures of an angle and its supplement is forty eight. Find the measure of both angles.
a + b = 180 b a = 48
2 a = 132 divided by 2 is a = 66
66 + b = 180 b = 180 66 b = 114
My answers: a = 66 and b = 114
Please correct me if I am wrong. Thank you.

Let X and Y be integrable, real-valued, i.i.d. random variables on the probability space ( Ω , F , P ) and let A F . Is it true that E ( X 1 A ) = E ( Y 1 A ), or, more generally, are X 1 A and Y 1 A i.i.d.? For any B B ( R ) we have
P ( X 1 A B ) = P ( ( { X 1 A B } A ) ( { X 1 A B } A c ) ) = P ( { X B } A ) + P ( { 0 B } A c ) P ( Y 1 A B ) = = P ( { Y B } A ) + P ( { 0 B } A c ) .
This shows that X 1 A and Y 1 A are i.i.d. if A is independent of σ ( X ) and σ ( Y ). Is it possible to drop this condition? If not, is it possible to conclude the equality for the expectations? If necessary, one can assume that A σ ( X + Y ).

Let ( X , A , μ ) be a finite measure space. Fix 1 < p , q < with 1 p + 1 q = 1. Let { f n } be a sequence in L p ( μ ) such that sup f n p = M < . Suppose for every g L q ( μ ) we have lim n f n g d μ converges.
Prove that f n weakly converges to some f L p ( μ ).
I have shown that ϕ ( g ) = lim n f n g d μ defines a linear functional ϕ ( L q ( μ ) ) . I think f is the element in Lp(μ) corresponding to ϕ ( L q ( μ ) ) by the Riezs' theorem isomorphism, but how do I prove this? How do I find this f?

I can`r do this, need help
Given a locally integrable function γ : R 0 R , we define the absolutely continuous function Γ ( t ) := max u t u t γ d λ.
I want to show, that γ ( t ) 0 holds for almost all t with Γ ( t ) = 0. In other words, I want to show that the set
A := { t R 0 | Γ ( t ) = 0   and   γ ( t ) > 0 }
is a Lebesgue-null set, i.e. λ ( A ) = 0.
All my attempts have failed. Nevertheless, I was able to show, that if Γ vanishes on a (proper) interval [ a , b ] with a < b, then λ ( A [ a , b ] ) = 0. This however does not lead to a proof of the more general claim λ ( A ) = 0.

Let, m be the lebesgue outer measure. Let, E R .
m ( E ) m ( E ( , c ) ) + m ( E [ c , ) ) ,
is true from definition of outer measure, but I'm having trouble showing the reverse inequality.
Where,
m ( E ) = inf { j = 1 | B j | : E j = 1 B j , B j  is a open interval }
Any help?
Thanks.

MathJax(?): Can't find handler for document MathJax(?): Can't find handler for document Let f : R R be a continuous bounded function, ( X k ) k a sequence of i.i.d random variables such that
x R , f ( x ) = R f ( x + y ) d P X 1 ( y ) .
Let x R , Y k = f ( x + q = 1 k X q ) , F k = σ ( X 1 , . . . , X k ) .

Verify that:
(1) E [ ( Y 1 f ( x ) ) 2 ] E [ ( Y 2 Y 1 ) 2 ]
and deduce that for every y supp P X 1 := { u , r > 0 , P X 1 ( [ y r , y + r ] ) > 0 } , f ( x + y ) = f ( x ) .

One way to prove the first question is to note that
R ( f ( x + y ) f ( x ) ) 2 d P X 1 ( y ) = R ( R ( f ( x + y + u ) f ( x + u ) ) d P X 2 ( u ) ) 2 d P X 1 ( y ) R ( R ( f ( x + y + u ) f ( x + u ) ) 2 d P X 2 ( u ) ) d P X 1 ( y ) E [ ( Y 2 Y 1 ) 2 ]
For part 2 we can deduce that for P X 1 -almost every y R , f ( x + y ) = f ( x ) ,, how to conclude using continuity that f ( x + y ) = f ( x ) for every y supp P X 1 ?
How to deduce part 2 ?
