comment Applications of Residue Theorem in complex analysis?
Hello, Welcome to math.SE. IMO one of the main use is to find integrals (i.e, contour integration). It is pretty important for finding real definite integrals also..Search for contour inegration would yielda lot of results.

comment Complex solutions of $\sin z = i \alpha \cos z$
put $z_0=i\alpha$ in the final answer.. it also gives you a very important onservation, if $\alpha = 1$ there is no solution.

comment What is degree of freedom in statistics?
Degree of freedom for a prticle is the number of dimensions only if the motion is not constrained. For an example, consider a particle hanging down from ceiling with the help of a rigid rod, then degree of freedom is less than $3$, right?(it is actually $2$.). Any two independent parameters give all information about the position of particle. (Try to give position using two parameters). If you still have questions, ask. I'll be glad to help if I can..

comment Where does the Chi-square equation come from?
IMO chi squared, Student's t distribution, and F distribution, all are from nowhere, they are names given to some functions of random variables which originated during calculations, like in linear regression, ANOVA, etc.They are to some extent derived distributions as opposed to distributions like normal, etc

comment simplify natural logarithm
putting the values, we get,$\ln 3C = \ln 3$.Take out the log, then we get $3C=3 \iff C=1$.

comment simplify natural logarithm
Hi, Welcome to math.SE. Please try to use $\LaTeX$ here. If $C$ is a constant, it is better to cancel $\frac 12$ from both sides.. and then use $\ln a - \ln b=\ln \frac ab$

comment Capping part of a sum
if I understand meaning of capped spend correctly,(it being maximum amount you can spend on x), then it is nothing but $15 \% $ of total spend. What is the question then?? Please clarify the question..

comment Why does the distribution of the probability change this way?
I don't think your question is clear. What are you asking? Does Bob wants to conduct Testing of Hypothesis for $H_0 : p \sim U(0,1) \text {vs } H_1 : p \sim Beta (3,1)$? (If he does, it might explain the question a little bit.) Please consider editing your question.

comment Example of a general random variable with finite mean but infinite variance
Distribution is defined for $\alpha > 0$ but the question is satisfied for $\alpha \in (1,2]$ as then expectation is finite and variance infinite.., for $\alpha \leq 1$ expectation is infinite, variance doesn't exist.. but

Hi, What have you tried? IMO you cannot find such values without using tables..

comment Probability of winning in the lottery
Check the comment of Ross Millikan, he did the question assuming you need to get exactly $3$ right. Do similarily for exactly $4$ right and exactly $5$ right. Then you get total no of favourable outcomes. Alternatively, find the complementary probability, i.e getting less than $3$ as that would be easier..

comment Probability of winning in the lottery
Hi, welcome to math.SE. Please clarify your question as question is not clear.Like what happens when we guess more than $3$ numbers? Are the rolled numbers different? Thanks.
