Finding sample variance

36, 25, 20, 10……..add them up


Step 2: square you answer and divide by number of terms

91*91=8281/4=2070.25……set this number aside

Step 3: Take your set of original numbers from Step 1, and square them individually,


Step 4: Subtract the amount in Step 2 from the amount in Step 3.


Step 5: Subtract 1 from the number of items in your data set.


Step 6: Divide the number in Step 4 by the number in Step 5. This gives you the variance

350.75/3=116.9,hence sample variance=116.9

Finding Sample standard deviation:


Step 7: Take the square root of your answer from Step 6
