Question #1162

Calculate SS variance and standard deviation for the following sample of n = 5 scores&
10, 3, 8, 0, 4 &

Expert's answer

The mean is

X = (10+3+8+0+4)/5 = 5

The variance is the average of the squared difference s from the mean:

σ^{2} = (5^{2}+(-2)^{2}+3^{2}+(-5)^{2}+(-1)^{2})/5 = 12.8

The standard deviation equals to square root of the variance:

σ = √ (12.8) = 3.58

X = (10+3+8+0+4)/5 = 5

The variance is the average of the squared difference s from the mean:

σ

The standard deviation equals to square root of the variance:

σ = √ (12.8) = 3.58
