If the mean has been properly chosen, the sum of the deviations from the mean will equal zero. The formula for the mean, ΣΧ//7, always yields the only value for which the sum of the differences from that value is equal to zero. Symbolically, this characteristic of the mean is stated as: Σ ( Χ - Χ ) = 0. 5) As an example, look at the set of numbers 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8. The mean is X = ΣΧ/π = 30/5 = 6 If you take all the scores above the mean (each X > X), and subtract the mean from each, this will sum to some positive number.
6b would be correct, since 45 is a multiple of 5. 6c would be incorrect. However, there is no rationale for this rule, and it is not universally followed. 52 Frequency Distributions Zero Frequencies Intervals with zero frequencies are normally omitted when they are the highest or lowest intervals. Thus, the distributions generally begin and end with nonzero frequencies. Intervening intervals with zero frequencies are almost always listed. The exception to the practice of beginning and ending with nonzero frequencies generally involves a comparison between two or more different distributions.
For example, just as ΣΑ: = nk, so ΣΧ = nX. Recall that we want to prove that the sum of the deviations from the mean defined as ΣΧ/η is zero. What is required, then, to prove the theorem, is to substitute ΣΧ/η for X in Σ(Χ - X), and see if the result is an equality with zero. This is the logic underlying the following proof. [first rule of summation] [second rule of summation] [definition of the mean a s X = ΣΧ/η] [algebraic equivalence, based on cancelling n] [algebraic equivalence of (ΣΧ - ΣΧ) and 0].
