    2 different data sets can have different means and the same sd they can also have the same means and different sds

    you calculate a mean of a data set in order to determine that sets sd ...so in that respect it would influence it

    No I mean, the standard deviation is the spread of a data set. The mean is the expected value, or an average. The two are different and don't influence the other right? I know you need one to calculate the other but they are still two separate things dealing with different stuff.

    one point of considerationtho is that the mean is in finding the the variance and standard deviation; so in that respect the mean would play some part in determing the sd
