Intro to Statistics:
\[\mu=\sum xP(x)\]
\[\mu\] is the expected value of x
So would I add the x values and P(x) values and then multiply them to get \[\mu\]?
x: 0 1 2 3 4 5
P(x): 0.237 0.396 0.264 0.088 0.015 0.001

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you would multiply 0 by 0.237 add it to 1 times .396 add it to 2 times 0.264 etc... the sum would be u

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for the standard deviation I have the equation \[\sigma=\sqrt{\sum(x\mu)^2P(x)}\] So, here I do: \[0\mu=1.253\] \[1\mu=11.253=.253\] \[2\mu=21.253=.747\] \[3\mu=31.253=1.747\] \[4\mu=41.253=2.747\] \[5\mu=51.253=3.747\] square each solution then multiply to P(x), then add those solutions up

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think I get it. I'll just use \\ \hlines before i move on to the next line. Makes sense
