is this the same as the sum of of VAR(Y)?

Hey kingsolomonsgrave.

What do you mean by sum of Var[Y]? Can you write it out in terms of sigma notation and expectation/variance of random variables? - Nov 6th 2013, 12:15 PMkingsolomonsgraveRe: the expectation of the sum of yi minus ybar squared
var(Y) in terms of expectation is

and

This looks right and remember also that expectation is linear so if you have a sigma inside the expectation, you can take it outside the expectation as well.
