1. 'Find an expression in terms of x for the variance of: 9,4,x,3'
Give your answer in the form of ax^2 + bx + c

I would usually give you some information of how I could possibly tackle this question but unfortunetly I have no idea. Could someone shed some light? Thanks

Well, given four numbers, 9,4, BLOING,3, how would you normally calculate the variance related to this set of numbers?

well I'd use the statistical formula for variance
Variance = Sum of (x - xbar)^2 / n

So, what is the average value, xbar, with the numbers that have been given you?
