This video continues the series on Continuous Random Variables by taking a look at how to find the mean, median and other percentiles for a continuous random variable. I start, as normal, by recapping the work from the previous video but also take a look at the work from Discrete Random Variables as this is important to know why the formulae we use in continuous random variables are used. Having looked at the theory, I take a look at some worked examples which find the Mean and Median for a continuous random variable.
