I am a little fuzzy on the meaning of Independent Identically distributed random variables. I understand the independent part but still not 100% on the identically distributed part. I understand that identically distributed means they have the same pdf and cdf but does this mean that they have the same mean and variance?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

For example if i have a sequence of random variables: N(0,1),N(2,4),N(3,5) and they are all independent are they IID?
