How well materials conduct heat matters when designing houses. As a test of a new measurement process, 10 measurements are made on pieces of glass known to have conductivity 1.
The average of the 10 measurements is 1.07. For each of the boldface numbers, indicate whether it is a parameter or a statistic. Explain your answer

Step 1
Population of interest:
The population of interest includes all the individuals of interest. The overall group of objects about which conclusions are to be drawn is called the population.
Parameter:
Any statistical measure based on all units in the population is called Parameter.
Sample:
Sample is any part of the population.
Statistic:
Any statistical measure calculated on the basis of sample observation is called Statistic.
Step 2
Check whether the given estimate is a parameter or a statistic:
The objective of the investigator is to estimate “How well materials conduct heat matters when designing houses”.
To achieve the objective, the investigator collects a sample of 10 measurements that are made on pieces of glass known to have conductivity 1.
The average of all this 10 measurements is 1.07.
Now, the estimate is the average of 10 measurements. That is, 1.07.
Here, the estimate (average of measurements) is calculated on the basis of 10 sample observations.
Therefore, it is a statistical measure calculated on the basis of sample observations.
Thus, the estimate in the given situation is a statistic.
Step 3
Result:
The estimate in the given situation is a statistic.

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 ?

Let n N, ( X , A , μ ) be a measure space and E 1 , . . . , E n A. For each j { 1 , . . . , n } define
C j ∶= { x X | x E k for exactly  j  indices , k { 1. . . , n } } .
I want to find a general expression for all the C j since I need to prove that each C j is a measurable set, I made an example and it is as follows
With n = 3
C 1 = ( E 1 E 2 c E 3 c ) ( E 1 c E 2 E 3 c ) ( E 1 c E 2 c E 3 )
C 2 = ( E 1 E 2 E 3 c ) ( E 1 E 2 c E 3 ) ( E 1 c E 2 c E 3 )
C 3 = k = 1 3 E k
So for C n we already have a general expression:
C n = k = 1 n E k
for C 1 :
C 1 = j = 1 n ( E j k j n E k c )
I was thinking of introducing permutations but actually I don't know if it works, someone can guide me a bit to express the C j sets in a manageable way

Show that lim n a n 2 x e n 2 x 2 1 + x 2 d x = 0 for a > 0 but not for a = 0.
My work: Let the value of the given limit be L . Put n 2 x 2 = t in the integrand. Then we have:
(1) L = 1 2 lim n n 2 a 2 e t 1 + t / n 2 d t .
Now plugging in t = n 2 a 2 + z yields:
L = 1 2 lim n 0 e n 2 a 2 e z 1 + a 2 + z / n 2 d z .
The last integrand is less than e z , an integrable function in [ 0 , ) . Also as n , the same integrand approaches 0. Hence by dominated convergence theorem, we obtain that L = 0.
The way I have solved the problem, I am not noticing any effect of the sign of a on the value of L . However, if I consider a = 0 then from (1) using a similar approach I found that L = 1 2 . So sign of a does matter. So my main query is what is wrong with my approach? Please give some insights.
Thanks in advance.
EDIT. Another thing that came into my mind just now is the following:
If we substitute n x = t , then:
L = lim n n a t e t 2 1 + t 2 / n 2 d t = lim n 0 χ ( n a , ) t e t 2 1 + t 2 / n 2 d t ,
where χ A represents the characteristic function of the set A.
Here it seems that if a < 0 then it would affect the value of L and to be honest I'm not quite sure about the dominant integrable function anymore. Please shed some light on the same, particularly for the case a < 0.

I am wondering if there is a basic unit in math.
3   c m × 2   c m = 6   c m 2
The cm is a unit of measurement, but what about:
3   c m × 2 = 6   c m
Should the 2 have a unit of counting? Like I have 2 (amount of stuff) 3 cm strings.
Should it be something like:
3   c m × 2   m u 0 = 6   c m
(where mu is a "mathematical" unit)
The unit is to the power of 0 because if it was not it would do this:
3   m u × 2   m u = 6   m u 2
And I don't think this works right, but m u 0 seems to:
3   m u 0 × 2   m u 0 = 6   m u 0
Is any of this correct, or is it all wrong?
