We know that Mean =

\( \dfrac{Sum\; of\; all \;observations}{Number\; of \;observations}\)

Mean, x̅ = \( \dfrac{ ((n(n + 1))2)}{n}\)

= \( \dfrac{ (n + 1)}{2}\)

and also Variance,

By substitute that value of x̅ we get,

We know that,

\( (a-b)^2=a^2-2ab+b^2\)

(a + b)(a – b) = a^{2} – b^{2}

σ^{2} = \(
\dfrac{(n^2 – 1)}{12}\)

Mean = \( \dfrac{ (n + 1)}{2}\) and Variance

\( \dfrac{(n^2 – 1)}{12}\)
