Mean, Standard Deviations, and Summation Statistics
You can calculate the mean ( ), sample standard deviation (S
), and summation statistics, n,
calculate the mean, sample standard deviation, and population standard deviation of the y-
data and the summation statistics
A yacht captain wants to determine how long it takes to change a sail. She randomly chooses
six members of her crew, observes them as they carry out the sail change, and records the
numbers of minutes required: 4.5, 4, 2, 3.25, 3.5, 3.75. Calculate the mean and sample
standard deviation of the times. Also, calculate the root mean square, using the formula,
