[tex]\sum_{i=1}^{n} |(y_i-\theta)|=n\theta[/tex](adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

where theta is a fixed constant and [itex]y_i[/itex] is a discrete random variable. does anyone know how to rewrite in close form?? also, everytime i use latex it starts a new line. how can i fix this so i can type directly with my sentances?

thanks
