Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1(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)

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so how i see it there will be in numerator sqrt(sum(xX)^2) divide by sqrt9 so divide by 3 ok ?

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

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@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.

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1They 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
