**MathGuru**, Friday, June 4, 2010 at 7:05pmTo find the mean:

SUM [x * P(x)]

Multiply each x by its respective probability P(x). Add together for a total. This will be your mean.

To find variance:

SUM [x^2 * P(x)] - mean^2

Square each x. Multiply each squared x by its respective probability P(x). Add together for a total. Square the mean. Subtract the squared mean from the total. This will be your variance.

To find standard deviation:

Take the square root of the variance.

Hopefully, this information will help you with problems of this type.
