Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The list X of ten numbers has a mean of 20, and population SD, \(\color{black}{{\LARGE \sigma}_X}\) equal to 5. THEN, Someone comes and claims that \(40\) is the maximum on this list X. (My task is:) `Show why this is impossible (i.e. why 40 can't be the maximum on the list). `

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\(\color{black}{\sqrt{\dfrac{(4020)^2+R}{10}}=6}\) where R is the sum of all remaining component of the Standard deviation. R=(\(X_2\)  20)\(^2\)+(\(X_3\)  20)\(^2\)+(\(X_4\)  20)\(^2\)+(\(X_5\)  20)\(^2\)+(\(X_6\)  20)\(^2\)+(\(X_7\)  20)\(^2\) where it is obvious that \(R\ge0\), thus: \(\color{black}{\sqrt{\dfrac{(20)^2+R}{10}}=6}\) \(\color{black}{\sqrt{\dfrac{400+R}{10}}=6}\) \(\color{black}{\sqrt{\dfrac{400+R}{10}}>6}\) knowing the restriction for R

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh my SD is 5, not 6. But then it certainly works.
