W = g X , Y ) = X for X + Y 4 2 Y for X + Y > 4 = I M ( X , Y ) X + I M c ( X , Y ) 2 Y W = g X , Y ) = X for X + Y 4 2 Y for X + Y > 4 = I M ( X , Y ) X + I M c ( X , Y ) 2 Y
(54)

Determine E[W]E[W] and E[W2]E[W2].

### Solution

H = t.*(t+u<=4) + 2*u.*(t+u>4);
EH = total(H.*P)
EH =   4.7379
EH2 = total(H.^2.*P)
EH2 = 61.4351
[W,PW] = csort(H,P);  % Alternate
EW = W*PW'
EW =   4.7379
EW2 = (W.^2)*PW'
EW2 = 61.4351

| A lens I own (?)

#### Definition of a lens

##### Lenses

A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

##### What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

##### Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

##### What are tags?

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.
