Every day they deliver, they get payed according to the total sum of what they both delivered. What they deliver each day could be seen as a stocastic variable with expexted value 20kg and standard deviation 3kg, that is: E(X1) = 20 sd(X1) = 3, E(X2) = 20 pV sd(X2) = 3 Two different persons A and B are responsible for weighing the berries delivered. Person A weighes both bag of berries individually and adds them together. Person B only weighs one bag and multiplies it with 2. What is the expected value for total weight if person A is working, and if person B is working? Thanks!
