Let $X_n$ a random variable of same law

  1. Sep 14, 2004 #1
    :confused: Hello

    I have a simple question :
    Let $X_n$ a random variable of same law
    If $V(X_n)\longrightarrow 0$ when $n\longrightarrow +\infty$
    How schow that : $E(X_n)\longrightarrow C$ and $E(X_{n}^{2}\longrightarrow C^2$ and C is a constant?
    Thanks

    Feynman, LaTex is down at the moment.

    How far have you got with this one Feynman?

    I suggest you let z = x - E(x) and then prove that E( z^2 ) = 0 implies that Z has a discrete probability denstiy with P(z=0) = 1.
