I'll re-write the problem in a more manageable form.
Recall that is a constant: .
The left side is: .
The right side is: .
The left side and the right side are equal . . .
Hi, I've attached an image of this little snippet from a lecture.
I just do not get why this equality holds. It's probably something to do with factorising etc... but I cannot see why.
X bar is the sum of xi over n (i.e. the mean).
My notation is a bit scruffy, but the summation on the left hand side is on the numerator only (not the entire fraction).
Cannot see why it equals 1!?
