    **Please see the attached file for the complete problem description **

    Please help me answer the attached exercise on independent random variables.

    Let {X1} be the moving average process of order 2 given by

    X1 = Z_t + theta(Z_t-2),

    Where {Z_t} is WN (0, 1).

    a) Find the auto covariance and the autocorrelation functions for this process when theta = .8

    b) Compute the variance of the sample mean (X_1 + X_2 + X_3 + X_4)/4 when theta = .8

    c) Repeat (b) when theta = -.8 and compare your answer with the result obtained in (b).
