Suppose that the random variables $${Y}_{1}$$ and $${Y}_{2}$$ have means $${\mu}_{1}$$ and $${\mu}_{2}$$ and variances $${\sigma}_{1}^{2}$$ and $${\sigma}_{2}^{2}$$, respectively. Use the basic definition of the covariance of two random variables to establish that $$Cov({Y}_{1},{Y}_{2})=Cov({Y}_{2},{Y}_{1})$$.

Let X and Y be independent random variables each having the uniform density on {0,1,...,N}. Find P(X=Y).

When you have an equation that deals with random variables, always start with an explanation related to some random variable examples. It is what the majority of skilled engineers do because it is the only way how one can avoid mistakes when working with statistical data. Even though this part of statistics and probability may seem overly complex, approach every random variable equation through the lens of probability as you seek answers to your questions. Compare provided solutions, see similarities, and you will achieve the most efficient solutions.
