Step 1

Standard deviation:

For sample:

Let x1,x2…xn be the population observations of size n. The sample mean is denoted by µ. Hence, the sample standard deviation can be expressed as,

Step 2

For population:

Let x1,x2…xN be the population observations of size N. the population mean is denoted by. Hence, the population standard deviation can be expressed as,

Step 3

The procedure for finding population standard deviation with group data:

• Step 1: Finding the mid points: For the first class, (a – b) , the lower limit is a and the upper limit is b. For the second class (c – d), the lower limit is c. Hence the mid-point is,((a + c)/2).
• Step 2: For each class, the mean class will be subtracted from mid-point.
• Step 3: The difference in step 2 will be squared and will be multiplied by the frequency.
• Step 4 : Add all those values obtained.
• Step 5: Find the sum of the frequencies.
• Step 6: Substitute the value from step 4 in the numerator and the value form step 6 in denominator. Take the square root of the fraction. That value the population standard deviation.

The procedure for finding sample standard deviation with group data:

• Step 1: Find the grand mean of the data.
• Step 2: Finding the mid points: For the first class, (a – b)...
