    If you have the first two conditions given, then you can conclude that

    Y and \sigma X + \mu

    has the same distribution, which is slightly differ from the third condition.

    On the other hand, if the third condition is given, then given any one of the first two condition, we can conclude the other condition hold.

    The location-scale transformation is quite standard here. In multivariate case, see e.g.

    aroko89 if you don't make your own thread I will have to ban you for spamming other threads with unrelated questions.
    I don't have emotions and sometimes that makes me very sad.
