disagree  Genevieve Tournebize: what if there is more than one independent variables

Explanation:
The X's (often carrying subscripts: X_i)
are random variables, (variables aléatoires). The French
doesn't mention this, so there's no
reason the English should.

You have the sum of the squares of the X's (might look better with subscripts and no plural: "the X_i" if the context calls for it)
