3. Consider a random sample of sample size n, {Xi}ni=1. We are interested in estimating the population mean of Xi, i.e, μ = E[X]. Let the sample average be Xn = (1/n) ∑n i=1 Xi. Let σ2 = Var(X) be the variance of Xi. (a) Prove that V ar( ̄Xn) = σ2 n . will happen to the variance of ̄Xn as n →∞? (b) Prove that Var(√n( ̄Xn −μ)) = σ2. (c) Discuss what will happen to the variance of a random variable Wn = n3/4( ̄Xn −μ) as n →∞. will happen to the distribution of Wn = n3/4( ̄Xn−μ) as n →∞?
