The sum of a random number of random variables Example: The number N of customers that place orders each day with an online bookstore is a random variable with expected value E [ N ]. The number of books X i that each customer i ( i = 1, 2,..., N ) purchases is also a random variable E [ X i ] with expected value E [ X i ].

The number of books X i that each customer i ( i = 1, 2,..., N ) purchases is also a random variable E [ X i ] with expected value E [ X i ]. What is the expected value of the total number of books Y sold each day? What is its variance?

The number of books X i that each customer i ( i = 1, 2,..., N ) purchases is also a random variable E [ X i ] with expected value E [ X i ]. What is the expected value of the total number of books Y sold each day? What is its variance? Assume that the number of books are independent and identically distributed with the same mean E [ X i ]= E [ X ] and variance Var[ X i ]= E [ X ] for i =1,..., N. Also assume the number of books purchased per customer is independent of the total number of customers.
