Unformatted text preview: N data = 10, so we bring that into the summation explicitly for each term. Average = (10) 1 10 + (20) 1 10 + (30) 2 10 + (50) 1 10 + (60) 1 10 + (70) 2 10 + (80) 2 10 If we consider the fractions that occur in the sum as probabilities for each discrete value of x , then the average is represented as: Average = N data X i =1 ( value ) i f (( value ) i ) In the continuous limit, we replace the summation by an integration. 1...
