Here's the question you clicked on:
Confucious
the mean doesn't influence the standard deviation right?
they are 2 separate units of measure i beleive
it like asking of circumference influence color
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
but the question is a bit vague
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.
2 things dealing with 2 different aspects of stuff; yes
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
the mean is used in finding ....
