This is not strictly true because in general a2 + b2 = a + b For example, 12 + 22 = √ 1+4 √ = 5=3 However, it provides us with a useful way of thinking about it. Statisticians quite often talk about the sample variance instead of the sample standard deviation. The sample variance is usually denoted by s2 and is simply the sample standard deviation squared. 085. 3 Order statistics, medians, quartiles, and quantiles The order statistics for a set of observations x1 , x2 , . . , xn are simply the observations sorted into ascending order.
