    (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)

    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 ?

    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

    @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.

    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
