### Re: Random Variables

Hi;

Okay! Very good.

Nice example, not only informative but mouth watering also.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

hi MathsIsFun,

All good.

You might consider a link from Variance on the third page to your Standard Deviation and Variance page.

Hi MathsIsFun,

They're good!
You may consider adding a few lines about central moments, and tell that variance is one of those.
