Hey guys,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have a quick question. Suppose X is a chi squared random variable with n degrees of freedom and Y is another independent chi squared random variable with n degrees of freedom.

Is X/Y ~ 1 ???

Intuitively, it makes sense to me but I'm not too sure.
