# Heinz mean

## Description

In probability and statistics, mean and expected value are used synonymously to refer to one measure of the central tendency either of a probability distribution or of the random variable characterized by that distribution. The Heinz mean of two non-negative real numbers A and B, is defined or different values of x, with 0 ≤ x ≤ 1/2. Heinz mean interpolates between the arithmetic (x = 0) and geometric (x = 1/2) means.
