    You given 6 x_i values. The equation only wants you to consider x_i for (i=1 until i=3), that would be x1, x2, x3. The sigma is the symbol for sum. So the problem is to find the sum for the following events: plugging in each x_i subtracting 1 then squaring that. Hence you'll have 3 values that you then add to together to get the final value. \[ i=1, x_1 = 2, (2-1)^2 = 1\] \[i=2, x_2 = -1, ((-1) -1)^2 = ... \] ... and so on

    could we expand the binomial and pick it apart sum for sum?

    So if your questions are mathematical, you'd probably be best served to ask them here because there is a greater mass of users in this group, so you're more likely get an answer.
