### Normal Distribution

the normal distribution depends on two factors, which are mean (µ) and standard deviation (which determines the height and width of a graph). Normal distribution of data is continuous for all values of x between -∞ and ∞ so that the intervals of a real number doesn’t have a probability of zero (-∞ ≤ x ≤ ∞). A probability density function: where x is a normal random variable, μ is the mean, σ is the standard deviation, π is approximately 3.1416, and e is approximately 2.7183. The graph...

[ασ (RA ) − (1 − α)σ (RB )]2 . Therefore, the standard deviation of portfolio P is σ (RP ) = ασ (RA ) − (1 − α)σ (RB ). As assets A and B are perfectly negatively correlated, we can construct portfolio P such that its standard deviation is 0. The weights of such portfolio are 0 = ασ (RA ) − (1 − α)σ (RB ) = 0.14 × α − 0.23 × (1 − α). Solving the above equation for α gives α= 0.23 = 0.622. 0.14 + 0.23 Portfolio P with standard deviation zero has weight 0.622 on asset A and weight 0...

measure of location. This is due to the fact that the mean has valuable mathematical properties that make it convenient for use with inferential statistical analysis. For example: the sum of the deviations of the numbers in a set of data from the mean is zero; and the sum of the squared deviations of the numbers in a set of data from the mean is the minimum value. Central Measures Measures of central tendencies are nothing but the measures to describe the "central" values of a collected sample...

### Risk-Return Relationship

+ (0.20) (0.15) + (0.40)(0.20) + (0.20) (0.25) + (0.10) (0.30) = 0.20 or 20% 5. The risk of a single asset is measured by its standard deviation or coefficient of variation. The standard deviation measures the variability of outcomes around the expected value and is an absolute measure of risk. The coefficient of variation is the ratio of the standard deviation to the expected value and is a relative measure of risk. FORMULA OF SD and COEFFICIENT VARIATION: Let’s look at problem No. 3 Problem...

confidence intervals verses point estimates? The sample mean is a point estimate (single number estimate) of the population mean – Due to sampling error, we know this is off. Instead, we construct an interval estimate, which takes into account the standard deviation, and sample size. – Usually stated as (point estimate) ± (margin of error) • What is meant by a 95% confidence interval? That we are 95% confident that our calculated confidence interval actually contains the true mean. • What is the...
