Let X 1 , X 2 ,…X n be a random sample from any distribution with mean value μ and standard deviation σ . Then E(Xbar) = μ V(Xbar) = σ 2 /n and σ Xbar = σ / n (If T 0 is the sample total, E(T 0 )=n μ , V(T 0 )=n σ 2 ), i.e., the variance of the sum is the sum of the variances) (Recall from problem 5-41 that V(X)=nV(Xbar))
