#3 How do you calculate the mean and variance of a discrete random variable ? – (a) The mean is the measure of central tendency and the variance is the spread of the distribution. – (b) The mean, E(X) is the weighted average of the outcomes times their corresponding probabilities. The variance is the difference between E(X^2) and E(X)^2. – (c) The mean, x-bar is the summation of the observations divided by the sample size. The variance, s, is the summation of the squared differences to the mean, divided by the sample size. – (d) The mean is the integral of x times the initial function between the stated limits. The variance is the same process, only using x^2 times the initial function. – (e) The mean is the centermost point in the distribution and the variance is twice the distance between the mean and the outermost boundaries of the box. 4
