Beef used to be cheap here, because cattle are literally everywhere once you drive out of the city. But nowadays, China, Indonesia, even the U.S. want a piece of Australian beef, so the beef price here has skyrocketed to something like $20-$35 a kg

@NormalHuman Then we can find the correlation between the mass of cabbage distributed over the x,y grid of the floor tiles vs the height of the cabbage from of off the ground!
This will help determine if cabbages are dark matter.

You have X, a random variable. You have a function g. Applying a function to a random variable gives you another random variable, namely g(X). You are asked to find its variance.
 
The variance of thrice the square of the proportion or responders plus four?
