    To 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.
