Perhaps this episode has been updated since October 7, but the prose looks correct to me and consistent with the diagram, although it could be clearer. The current text is a bit glib about the semantics of
The main inconsistency that I would like to report is that the diagram uses object notation to take the mean:
whereas the code cell uses functional notation:
While both notations are correct, this discrepancy adds more cognitive burden to the learner.
Secondly, in the diagram, the
