    I'm having quite a bit of trouble with these few.

    1. Show that if F and G are sigma field, then FnG is also a sigma field, but in general FuG is not.

    2. Let X be a rv, and let g:R->[0,inf] be an increasing function such that
    E(g(x))<inf. Show that for any real a, one has:


    In particular P(X<a)<<E(exp{b(X-a)}) for any real a, and any b>0.

    3. P(X_n=k)=nCkp^k(1-p)^(n-k)

    a) What is the moment generating function of X_n?

    b) Let p=P_n ->0 as n tends to infinity in such a way that n.p_n -> b>0. Show that as n tends to infinity, Mx_n (t) tends to exp{b(e^t-1)}

    Please could you show me at least where to look for how to work these out? I really dont have many resources here.

    Thanks in advance i'm really stuck.
