the difference between sample variance and pop variance is you divide by N1 and N respectively Let X be sum of squared deviations \[\frac{X}{N1} = 7.5\] where N = 45 \[X = (7.5)(44)\] so pop variance is X/N \[\frac{X}{45} = \frac{(7.5)(44)}{45}\]

Thank you, that makes sense now. I was trying to make it much more difficult than it actually is.
