Step 1
Average salary of Tim, Maida and Aaron = $ 34000
Average salary = Total salary No. of persons
T i m + M a i d a + A a r o n = 34000 × 3
T + M + A = 102000 ( 1 )
Maida earn 10000 more than Tim.
M = T + 10000 ( 2 )
Aaron salary is 8000 less than twice Tim salary
A = 2 T 8000 ( 3 )
Put value of M and A in (1)
T + ( T + 10000 ) + ( 2 T 8000 ) = 102000 4 T + 2000 = 102000 4 T = 100000 T = 25000
Step 2
M = 25000 + 10000 M = 35000
A = 2 ( 25000 ) 8000 A = 42000
Salary T i m = $ 25000 M a i d a = $ 35000 A a r o n = $ 42000

We can consider the sequence space R Z , which becomes a Polish space (complete, separable metric space) when equipped with the product topology. In the theory of stochastic processes, one is frequently interested in probability measures on this space.
A classical result on measure theory in Polish spaces tells us that any probability measure μ on a Polish space X is tight: given ϵ > 0, then there is a compact set K ϵ X such that μ ( K ϵ ) > 1 ϵ.
Hence any product probability measure on R Z is tight.
Say we fix an i.i.d. probability measure μ on R Z . Precisely, μ ( A i ) = ν ( A i ) for some probability measure ν on R .
Is there a nice, concrete proof that μ is tight (independent of ν)?
The reason I ask is tightness is somewhat counter-intuitive here. For instance, if ν has unbounded support, then, for each M > 0, the set { k Z | x k | M } is infinite almost surely under μ (by the 0-1 law). Thinking along those lines, it's not easy to see K ϵ intuitively.
