Question

In
300 words describe the process you would take to calculate the
standard deviation of a samole set.

Answer #1

- For the given data calculate the mean (simple average of the numbers)
- Then for each number: subtract the Mean and square the result.
- Then work out the mean of those squared differences.
- Take the square root of that then we get standard deviation

Example:

consider the data 8 , 10, 12, 6, 11, 9 = x

n = 6

=

= 8 + 10 + 12 + 6 + 11+ 9 = 56

= 56 / 6

= 9.333

sample variance =

standard deviation =

= (8 - 9.333)^{2} + (10 - 9.333)^{2}+ (12 -
9.333)^{2}+ (6 - 9.333)^{2}+ (11 -
9.333)^{2}+ (9 - 9.333)^{2}= 23.333

(1 / 6 - 1) * 23.333 = 4.6666

standard deviation = = 2.1602.

Describe in your own words what standard deviation is and what it
can tell you about data. As a nurse how might you use the standard
deviation to better help your patients? Remember to respond to
yours classmates as well.

Calculate the standard deviation of the following test data by
hand. Describe the mean and standard deviation in words after
calculating it. Record the steps. Test Scores: 25, 82, 103, 33, 57,
75, 100, 81, 62, 29

Calculate the sample standard deviation of the data set below
and what does the number describe about the data set.
4，5，6，20，4，34，34

Describe the steps required to calculate standard deviation for
a sample. Provide a rationale/justification for each step in the
process.

The standard deviation of 2000 hours was calculated as 300
hours. Calculate the probability of being more than 2100 hours ?,
less than 1900 hours. If a customer who bought the bulbs claims
that the light bulbs last for 1800 hours and would like the bulbs
to be replaced, what would your decision be? Please explain doing
the necessary calculations.

SAT scores are distributed with a mean of 1,500 and a standard
deviation of 300. You are interested in estimating the average SAT
score of first year students at your college. If you would like to
limit the margin of error of your 95% confidence interval to 25
points, how many students should you sample?

3. Describe how the shape and standard deviation of a sampling
distribution changes as sample size increases. In other words,
describe the changes that occur to a sampling distribution
according to the Central Limit Theorem. Make sure you describe what
a sampling distribution is in your answer. Generate
pictures/diagrams to illustrate your thoughts if you would
like.
