Show that $5^{\frac{N-1}{2}}\equiv -1 \pmod{N}$. edited title 15h comment How to isolate and solve for k in a Sigma notation probability mass function equation? There is a mistake in your formula. It is supposed to be $$P(X = n) = \sum_{k=0}^n = {{{K \choose k} {{N-K} \choose {n-k}}}\over {N \choose n}}$$ and the question is asking to solve for $n$ 15h comment Finding a function of a random variable that maximizes some expression 15h comment Finding a function of a random variable that maximizes some expression optimizing for a function sounds like Calculus of Variations to me 15h comment Finding a function of a random variable that maximizes some expression you probably mean $$g(b_1(v_1),b_2) = \Pr (b_1(v_1) \geq b_2) \cdot \mathbb E(v_1 - b_1(v_1)).$$ Also why do you need $v_2$? 15h comment Geometric progression question. Year less? @Bradman175 does not really influence the answer -- yours is the correct one 1d revised What is the inequality which is used to prove this inequality? added 1 character in body; edited title 1d comment Convergence of $\sum_{i \leq n} X_i/n$ @Math1000 yes, otherwise use $Z_n = nY_n - n\mu_X$ where $\mu_X = \mathbb{E}[X]$... 1d comment Convergence of $\sum_{i \leq n} X_i/n$ $(nY_n)$ is definitely a martingale 1d revised Let $X$ and $Y$ be iid real-valued random variables. Show $P[|X-Y| \le 2] \le 3P[|X-Y| \le 1]$. edited tags 1d comment Let $X$ and $Y$ be iid real-valued random variables. Show $P[|X-Y| \le 2] \le 3P[|X-Y| \le 1]$. Here is a thought, but not sure how to finish it. $$\mathbb{P}[|X-Y| \le a] = \int_{-\infty}^\infty [F(y+a) - F(y-a)] f(y) dy$$ so in your case it suffices to prove that $$F(y+2) - F(y-2) \le 3 F(y+1) - 3F(y-1), \quad \forall y \in \mathbb{R}$$ but I am not sure how to prove this is in general. 1d revised Let $X$ and $Y$ be iid real-valued random variables.
