The following table shows the probability distribution for a discrete random variable.
X 13 16 18 21 23 25 26 31
P(X) 0.07 0.21 0.17 0.25 0.05 0.04 0.13 0.08
The mean of the discrete random variable X is 20.59. What is the variance of X? Round your answer to the nearest hundredth.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2good then\[x_{i} x\] xi is each value of your x value . x really i cant use xbar because the keyboard is limited .. x bar is the average= \[xbar=\sum_{i=1} x _{i}/n\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2in you r case you have many data points. so really your job is fine all the distance from the mean and then sum them up and divide by the number of data point and minus 1.
