**Summation Notation ()**

One of the most common symbols in statistics is the uppercase Greek letter sigma, (), which is the standard notation for summation. It is readily translated as “add up, or sum, what follows.” The general rule, which always applies, is to perform operations within parentheses before performing operations outside parentheses.
