The Sample Mean
The average of a random sample of i.i.d.
random variables is called their sample mean.
The sample mean is useful for summarizing
the information in a random sample in much

Covariance and Correlation
Given
(X , Y ) f (x , y ),
How much the two random variables, X and
Y , depend on each other?
A useful measure is Covariance (or
Correlation), which captures a

The Mean and The Median
Both the mean of a distribution and the
median are measures of central location for a
distribution.
How do you distinguish them?

Variance
Let X , Y satisfy
E (X ) = 2,
Pr(Y = 2) = 1.
Question:How to distinguish between them?
Two useful measures:
variance!
The standard deviation is the square-root
of the variance.
