Sample variance
Midpoint, minus mean, squared, multiplied by the frequency
Divide by the total number of frequency

A) Calculate the approximate mean ( ) of these sample data
(1x4)+(3x2)+(5x9)+(7x7)
4+2+9+7 = 4.73
B) Calculate the approximate standard deviation of these sample data
(14.73)^2 (4)+ (34.73)^2 (2)+ (54.73)^2 (9)+ (74.73)^2 (7) 98.38
(4+2+9+7)1 = 21 = 4.68
o So, 4.68 is the variance. Standard deviation is the square root of this. 2.16

Percentiles
Measure the approximate percentage of values in the data set that are below the value
of interest
o Examples:
o 20% of the data values are below the 20th percentile
o 73% of the data values are below the 73rd percentile
Always round the number up
