(has a hat to distinguishfrom parameter)-Parameter:A numerical property of the population.-Mean:The average value of a sample or population. (formula given on final)-Variance:A measure of the spread of a sample or population. (formula given onfinal)-Standard deviation:the square root of variance.-Skewness:Rather than being symmetrical, a distribution is skewed if thepeak of the distribution lies away from the mean of the distribution.-Right-skew:the peak is to the left of the mean.
