Mathematical properties of arithmetic mean, Applied Statistics

Mathematical Properties

  1. The sum of deviations of the items from the arithmetic mean (taking signs into account) is always zero, i.e.   1507_mathematical properties.png   = 0.

  2. The sum of the squared deviations of the items from arithmetic mean is less than the sum of the squared deviations of the items from any other value, i.e.   806_mathematical properties1.png   is less than   564_mathematical properties2.png  where A is any other point, different from   1888_arithmetic mean.png  .

  3. Since,   1888_arithmetic mean.png  =   2284_mathematical properties3.png  , (N x   1888_arithmetic mean.png  ) =   919_mathematical properties4.png  .

  4. If we have the arithmetic mean and number of items of two or more than two groups, we can compute combined average of these groups, by applying the following formula:
