Steps for Standard Deviation

Step 1 : Use formula for standard deviation,

σ = √[(1/N)Σi(xi-μ)2].

Step 2 : Where σ – the standard deviation

N – number of data points ;

xi – the random variable where i takes values from 1 to N ;

Step 3 : μ- the mean of the data set;

Then write the final answer for σ .
