61. 11 12(11) S= We close this section by offering formulae useful for updating the sample mean and variance when additional sample information becomes available. To this end we first examine a recursion formula for the sample mean of a variable X. 19). That is, suppose we know Xn (the average of the values X1 , . . , Xn ) and another observation Xn+1 becomes available. What is the average of all n + 1 observations? 2) Based upon this notation, we immediately can see how a recursion relationship works: the result for the (n + 1)st term is obtained from the value of the nth term.

Let us now get a bit more specific. 576σ In view of 4c, it is evident that for a normal distribution, we may approximate σ as range . 6 Standard Deviation of a Frequency Distribution. , the right-hand side is the mirror image of the lefthand side. The tails of a distribution are asymptotic to the horizontal axis if, as they extend away from the center of the distribution to −∞ and +∞, they gradually approach, but never touch, the horizontal axis. 24 Chapter 2 Elementary Descriptive Statistical Techniques X m − ks m m + ks This interval contains at least 1− 12 of all N observations on X.

Xn , we may think of degrees of freedom as the number of independent observations in the sample; that is, it is calculated as the sample size less the number of prior estimates made. 19) 36 Chapter 2 Elementary Descriptive Statistical Techniques is the single prior estimate made. Then the sample standard deviation appears as n (Xi − X )2 i=1 S= . 20) Looked at in another fashion, we may view degrees of freedom as a property of a sum of squares under the linear restriction ni=1 (Xi − X ) = 0. That is, if n i=1 (Xi − X ) = 0 must hold and X is given, then once we select any n − 1 of the observations Xi , i = 1, .
