Procedure to calculate the Standard Deviation of a given dataset:
1. Calculate the mean of all the numbers (the simple average of the numbers).
2. Then for each number: subtract the Mean from the number and square the result.
3. Then add all the values from the above step to get the sum of squares.
4. Divide the sum of squares calculate above by the number of numbers minus one; that is, (nÂ â€“ 1).
5. Take the square root of that and then we get the...
