Compute the variance and the standard deviation of the number of admissions 9round your variance to nearest whole number and standard deviation to 1 decimal place
For each pair [x, P(x)] find
(x - mean)^2 and multiply by P(x).
Sum these to find the variance:
(532-711.92)^2 x 0.20 + (691-711.92)^2 x 0.55 + (902-711.92)^2 x 0.25
= 15748 (to nearest whole number)
Standard deviation is sqrt(variance)
= 125.5 (to one decimal place)
