Sample size (n)6
Population standard deviation (σ) 0.6198
Standard Error of mean (x̄)0.253

## SE of x̄ Work with Steps for n = 6 & σ = 0.6198

The below is the example work with step by step calculation shows how to estimate the standard deviation of sampling distribution of mean for sample size n = 6 and population data set 2, 3, 2.5, 4, 2.7, 3.2, 4.1, 2.9, 2.8 and 3.5 to help grade school students to solve the similar SE of x̄ worksheet problems efficiently.
Workout :
step 1 Address the formula, input parameters & values
Input parameters & values
x1 = 2, x2 = 3, x3 = 2.5, . . . . , x10 = 3.5
Number of elements n = 10
Sample size = 6
Find SE of mean for 2, 3, 2.5, 4, 2.7, 3.2, 4.1, 2.9, 2.8 & 3.5

step 2 Find the mean for 2, 3, 2.5, 4, 2.7, 3.2, 4.1, 2.9, 2.8 & 3.5

µ = n i = 1 Xin
=(2 + 3 + 2.5 + . . . . + 3.5)/10
µ = 3.07

step 3 Find the population standard deviation for 2, 3, 2.5, 4, 2.7, 3.2, 4.1, 2.9, 2.8 & 3.5

=√{ (2 - 3.07)² + (3 - 3.07)² + (2.5 - 3.07)² + . . . . + (3.5 - 3.07)²}/10

= (-1.07)² + (-0.07)² + (-0.57)² + . . . . + (0.43)²/10

= (1.1449 + 0.0049 + 0.3249 + . . . . + 0.1849)/10

= 3.841/10

= √0.3841

σ = 0.6198

step 4 Apply standard deviation and sample size values in the below standard error formula

SEμ = σn

=0.6198/ √6

= 0.253

For the dataset 2, 3, 2.5, 4, 2.7, 3.2, 4.1, 2.9, 2.8 & 3.5

3.07 is the sample mean

0.6198 is the population standard deviation

0.253 is the standard error of mean
