Continuous random variables and their probability distributions

Mathematical Methods: Units 3 and 4

Introduction

Warning: This has nothing to do with Marmite, Vegemite or Jam!
This video continues looking at continuous random variables. In previous videos, we have looked at what a continuous random variable is and how to find the median and mean. This video looks at how to find the variance and standard deviation for continuous random variables.
There are a few worked examples and lots of puns, witticisms and great explanations.
