## Workout for PSD of 78, 92, 85, 65 & 90?

The below workout with step by step calculation may help grade school students, beginners or learners to understand how to measure degree of uncertainty or standard deviation for entire population 78, 92, 85, 65 & 90 or to summarize the details of how close the linear variability of whole elements to its mean of finite population in the statistical experiments.
Workout :
step 1 Address the formula, input parameters & values
Input parameters & values
x1 = 78, x2 = 92, . . . . , x5 = 90
Number of samples n = 5
Find standard deviation for finite population 78, 92, 85, 65 & 90

step 2 Find the mean for 78, 92, 85, 65 & 90

µ = n i = 1 Xin
=(78 + 92 + 85 + . . . . + 90)/5
µ = 82

step 3 Apply the samples, mean & number of sample values in the below population standard deviation formula

=√{ (78 - 82)² + (92 - 82)² + (85 - 82)² + . . . . + (90 - 82)²}/5

= (-4)² + (10)² + (3)² + . . . . + (8)²/5

= (16 + 100 + 9 + . . . . + 64)/5

= 478/5

= √95.6

s = 9.7775

For the dataset 78, 92, 85, 65 & 90
82 is the mean
9.7775 σ is the standard deviation (σ) for finite population
95.6 is the variance2) of finite population
10.9316 σ is the estimate standard deviation (s) of population
119.5 is the estimate variance (s2) of population
