Skewness calculator Formula:

	 g=sum(x-xmean)^3 for all observations/(n-1)^3
where:
 x: Mean of samples
 xi:The ith sample
 n: Total sample number
 s: Standard Deviation of all samples
 g: Sample skewness

Here data: 3,8,10,14,15

n = 5

mean = (3+8+10+14+15)/5 = 10

variance = 23.5

standard deviation = sqrt(23.5) =4.847

Putting these values in skewness formula, we get skewness = -0.3555
