Correlation of Rolling Two Dice If A is a random variable responsible for calculating the sum of two independent rolls of a die, and B is the result of calculating the value of first roll minus the value second roll, is is true that A and B have a cov(A,B)!=0? In other words, is it true that they are correlated? I've come to the conclusion that they must be correlated because they are not independent, that is, the event of A can have an impact on event B, but I remain stuck due to the fact that causation does not necessarily imply correlation. I know that independence −> uncorrelation, but that the opposite isn't true.

Correlation of Rolling Two Dice
If A is a random variable responsible for calculating the sum of two independent rolls of a die, and B is the result of calculating the value of first roll minus the value second roll, is is true that A and B have a c o v ( A , B ) 0? In other words, is it true that they are correlated?

Covariance of independent variables is 0 but covariance of dependent variables is not necessarily non-zero: it might be 0 (which is exactly what happens in this case), so your conclusion is untrue.
Let X 1 , X 2 be independent random variables denoting the number rolled on the two fair die respectively. X 1 , X 2 are identically distributed. A = X 1 + X 2 , B = X 1 X 2
E [ B ] = E [ X 1 ] E [ X 2 ] = 0. E [ A B ] = E [ X 1 2 ] E [ X 2 2 ] = 0.
So the covariance E [ A B ] E [ A ] E [ B ] is 0.

While doing the analysis, I did a simple regression and check out that some variables have low p-value. Therefore I thought they are influential variables for dependent variable.
So I did Multiple regression with influential variables, but p-values become not influentially low and less significant (less descriptive). Is this case some kind of multicolinearity? I've heard a lot about the opposite result (the more variable added, the insignificant variable becomes more descriptive), but I'm not sure about this case.

The Porsche Club of America sponsors driver education events that provide high-performance driving instruction on actual racetracks. Because safety is a primary consideration at such events, many owners elect to install roll bars in their cars. Deegan Industries manufactures two types of roll bars for Porsches. Model DRB is bolted to the car using existing holes in the car's frame. Model DRW is a heavier roll bar that must be welded to the car's frame. Model DRB requires 20 pounds of a special high alloy steel, 40 minutes of manufacturing time, and 60 minutes of assembly time. Model DRW requires 25 pounds of the special high alloy steel, 100 minutes of manufacturing time, and 40 minutes of assembly time. Deegan's steel supplier indicated that at most 40,000 pounds of the high-alloy steel will be available next quarter. In addition, Deegan estimates that 2000 hours of manufacturing time and 1600 hours of assembly time will be available next quarter. The pro?t contributions are $200 per unit for model DRB and $280 per unit for model DRW. The linear programming model for this problem is as follows:
Max 200DRB + 280DRW
s.t.
20DRB + 25DRW 40,000 Steel Available
40DRB + 100DRW ? 120,000 Manufacturing minutes
60DRB + 40DRW ? 96,000 Assembly minutes
DRB, DRW ? 0
