HW 7  Problem 6 clarification
In problem 6 it was asked to get the mean of the minimum of 2 uniform distribution between [0,1]. In my answer if I take the mean with 2 digit approximation I get a number which is closer to a different choice of answer vs when I take 1 digit approximation. I am not sure which one is correct. Could you please clarify?

Re: HW 7  Problem 6 clarification
Thank you professor, that does give the right answer. It's a little counter intuitive that the answer turned out this way. Is there a theory behind it? Can it be calculated analytically?

Re: HW 7  Problem 6 clarification
It can be calculated analytically. It is part of the theory of "order statistics."

Thank you professor! This is the best class that I have taken. I learned a great deal. The Homeworks are very well designed, they clarifies most of the theories. Your choice of topics for the class are just immaculate.
