StatisticsEssentials Of StatisticsS O C In problem 3.5 at the end of Chapter 3, you calculated measures of central tendency for four variables for 15 respondents. Two of those variables are reproduced here. Calculate the mean (if necessary), the range, and the standard deviation for each variable. What information is added by the measures of dispersion? Write a paragraph summarizing these statistics.
