(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 = n1 (so 9)

have you any idea for this ?

mariomintchevBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yes but ive been getting the wrong answers. d bar = 1.5 so ive been doing ((1291.5)^2+(2371.5)^2+(1101.5)^2+.......))

so how i see it there will be in numerator sqrt(sum(xX)^2) divide by sqrt9 so divide by 3 ok ?

jhonyy9Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
can you calcule first this sum ?

i got 270258.5 for x and 261262.5 for y then i subtracted the 2 to get 8996

mariomintchevBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
then divide by 9 and square root it to get 31.616

jhonyy9Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
why divide by 9 and not by 3 ?

mariomintchevBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
arent u supposed to do whats in the radical first and then square root it?
 one year ago

jhonyy9Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
why you can separte it sqrt of numerator and sqrt of denominator and vide it after

@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.

jhonyy9Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so than you need calcule right this sum and after make the squareroot of them ,yes ?
 one year ago

jhonyy9Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so and after just divide it by 3

Ask @mariomintchev what version of Excel did she/he use to generate the spread sheet.

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 xy 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 ((11.5)^2+(131.5)^2+(31.5)^2+....)) ???

phiBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
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!

phiBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
I got 5.930 (dd1.5).^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
