### Convergence of expected values as random variables converge almost surely

Let I have a sequence of random variables $X_n$ that converges to random variable $X$ almost surely as $n\to\infty$. How can I proof that $\lim_{n\to\infty}\mathcal{E}[X_n]=\mathcal{E}[X]$ where ...

### How to calculate the median and the quantiles of this distribution?

A median of a distribution of one random variable $X$ of the discrete or continuous type is a value of $x$ such that $P(X < x) \leq 1/2$ and $P(X \leq x) \geq 1/2$. If there is only one such $x$, ...

### Sample Mean and Sample Variance

Consider a sample of data S obtained by flipping a coin x, where 0 denotes the coin turned up heads, and 1 denotes that it turned up tails. S = {1, 1, 0, 1, 0} What is the sample mean for this data ? ...
