so what numbers you have got for ????

the sum across the values how you can get it ?
im confused about the top part of the formula. ive been getting the wrong answers so i must be doing something wrong.
sorry but this attachement i not can opening ,not id compatibly with my excell programm

what about now?
can you rewrite me here the values for x and X the mean or average and the value for n ?
@robtobey can you opening this attachement please ?
(column 1) x = 129, 237, 110, 32, 322, 134, 119, 32, 172, 149 total sum for x = 1436 mean for x = 143.6 (column 2) y = 130, 224, 113, 38, 320, 124, 122, 33, 169, 148 total sum for y = 1421 mean for y = 142.1 value for n = 10 df = n-1 (so 9)
have you any idea for this ?
yes but ive been getting the wrong answers. d bar = 1.5 so ive been doing ((129-1.5)^2+(237-1.5)^2+(110-1.5)^2+.......))
so how i see it there will be in numerator sqrt(sum(x-X)^2) divide by sqrt9 so divide by 3 ok ?
can you calcule first this sum ?
how many will be this sum ?
i got 270258.5 for x and 261262.5 for y then i subtracted the 2 to get 8996
then divide by 9 and square root it to get 31.616
but thats wrong
why divide by 9 and not by 3 ?
arent u supposed to do whats in the radical first and then square root it?
why you can separte it sqrt of numerator and sqrt of denominator and vide it after
and divide it after
i get the same answer either way
31.616
the right answer is 5.93
@jhonyy9 It may to late for solving this problem. Attached is a screen capture of part of the xls file. I am running on a mid 2010 IMac with 8Gb of ram to support virtual versions of Windows XP pro, Windows 98SE and in the past Ubuntu Linux. The xls file is not a normal spread sheet data file. All I can provide is a screen capture of what I see.

how can i opening it what program i need using for ?
i provided all the necessary info above ^^^^^
so than you need calcule right this sum and after make the squareroot of them ,yes ?
so and after just divide it by 3
Ask @mariomintchev what version of Excel did she/he use to generate the spread sheet.
Excel 2010

  • phi
They want the standard deviation of the differences. Your formula tells you how to find the standard deviation of a list of numbers. The first step is find the list of numbers: the list of differences so find x-y where x= 129, 237, 110, 32, 322, 134, 119, 32, 172, 149 y = 130, 224, 113, 38, 320, 124, 122, 33, 169, 148 the differences (call it z) are z= -1 13 -3 -6 2 10 -3 -1 3 1 now use your formula to find the standard deviation
so ((-1-1.5)^2+(13-1.5)^2+(-3-1.5)^2+....)) ???
  • phi
yes, then divide by 9 then take the square root.
ok, i got 5.95 so its close enough. thanks phi, i can always rely on you!
  • phi
I got 5.930 (dd-1.5).^2 6.2500 132.2500 20.2500 56.2500 0.2500 72.2500 20.2500 6.2500 2.2500 0.2500 sum(ans)/9 = 35.1667 sqrt(35.1667)= 5.9302
i must have made a little mistake somewhere when punching in all of those numbers and parenthesis. i understand what i need to do now though. thanks! =o)
