$P(X_n) \to 1/2, P(Y_n) \to 1, P(Z_n) \to 1 $ as $n \to \infty$. prove $P(X_nY_nZ_n) \to 1/2$ as $n\to \infty$. I'm stuck on this question, not sure how I should proceed. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

  • $\begingroup$ What do you mean that $P(X_n) \to 1/2, n \to \infty$? Is this an a.s. convergence to the degenerate random variable $X = 1/2$? $\endgroup$ – Therkel Dec 16 '16 at 9:35
  • $\begingroup$ @Therkel, the way I see it, $(X_n)_{n \in \mathbb N}$ is a sequence of sets not a sequence of random variables, and $ \mathbb{P}(X_nY_nZ_n)$ means $\mathbb{P}(X_n,Y_n,Z_n)$ $\endgroup$ – Cettt Dec 16 '16 at 15:13
  • $\begingroup$ What exactly is meant by $$\mathbb P\left(X_n,Y_n,Z_n\right)\quad \large \mathrm ? $$ $\endgroup$ – Math1000 Dec 17 '16 at 8:42
