I have this estimator
T= (X_1 + X_2 +X_3 +......+ X_n)/n
now the variance of T should be Var(X)/(n^2) ? right?
because my teacher has written Var(X)/n
where am I wrong? where?

No I think I got it
it is because (Var[ X_1+ ...+X_n])/n^2= Var X_1+....+VarX_n/n^2=
n Var(X) /n^2 = VarX/n
because it's not that X_1=X_2 but their variance. Okay. Do not consider thsi post.
