mgfs can be used to find the moments of a random variable with relative ease.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

But you have to evaluate the function at t=0. Many times these functions are such that t can be all real numbers.

How would you interpret an mgf evaluated at t=1. How does t relate to the probability distribution.
