Question

I am having problems calculating the population variance. I am okay for the first 4 steps in the procedure to finding the population variance and the population standard deviation. i get getting the incorrect answer when i try to divide by "N" to get the variance. it is not a problem in the textbook but it is problem in ConnectMath.
