I am told that to find the mean you just gotta look at this... honestly!Just this...¯
=Σ
xn
Well, that’s a bummer.... what the hell does
x
stand for?
x
’s are just vari-ables... random variables that represent some numbers. The numbers couldbe ages of students in a class, temperature readings in a

µ
)

n
