Statistics – How to calculate the standard deviation

This video covers how to find the standard deviation by hand using the formula. Remember there are actually two formulas depending if your data comes from a sample or a population. Even though all of these calculations can be done by hand, a calculator is recommended so that you don’t make mistakes.

    I wanted to do the same exercise with different numbers 😀 93,47,73,31,59,11,68,83,49,27 🙂 Guess the result? The sample is =26.08 and Population = 24.74 all random numbers we got same results. How its called serendipity… Also, yes there is a difference in third fractions…BUT what are the chances 😀

  9. Niveet Bandu says:

    could you calculate coefficient of variation using this example please

  10. Dimensional Reactions says:

    Nice. Thanks for this. Need it for Junior High School Research. Good job and I'm certain you're helping lots of people with your videos.

  11. Abdul Hakeem Tomawis says:

    how did you find the value of 680.3222?

    Should of gave us this video rather than a 1 week lecture that didn't explain anything.

  15. Irwan Shah says:

    I got a question. Since Standard Deviation is the Square Root of Variance, is it right to say that I can apply the Sample/Population Variance formula and simply square root the whole chunk to find the Sample/Population Standard Deviation?

  16. ItsOnlyUnique says:

    Why is 10. 9

  17. shammima khumalo says:

    Well explained thank you

  18. Adventure with Pickles says:

    10×85511= 855110-793881= 61229/10= 6122.9*9= 55106.1

    How did you get 680.3222? what am I doing wrong?

    God bless you…

  21. malthus101 says:

    doesn't really explain anything though

    A very clear and understandable explanation of how to calculate standard deviation by hand 😀

  23. Hlengiwe Ngutha says:

    Help please.

    A retailer observes that the demand for a popular board game averages 40 per week with the standard deviation of 13. If the seller wishes to have adequate stock 99% of the time, at least how many games must she keep on hand?

  24. John Bishoppe Laput says:

    It is good if resulted with negative number?
