Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1In order to find variance you must first find the mean. The mean is just the average, so add all your inputs and divide by the total number of inputs. Step 1 find mean. 6+5+1+2+2+4+7+4+5+5=41 divide by total inputs (10) = 4.1 is mean days Variance is done by subtracting the mean from each term then squaring the result. Then add up all those results and divide by number of inputs. (64.1)=1.9^2=3.61 (54.1)=.9^2=.81 (14.1)=3.1^2=9.61 (24.1)=2.1^2=4.41 (24.1)=2.1^2=4.41 (44.1)=.1^2=.01 (74.1)=2.9^2=8.41 (44.1)=1^2=.01 (54.1)=.9^2=.81 (54.1)=.9^2=.81 Now add them up and divide by 10 again. 3.61+.81+9.61+4.41+4.41+.01+8.41+.01+.81+.81/10=3.29 Standard deviation=sqrt of the variance = (sqrt3.29)=1.81
