Question

(2.40) This is a standard deviation contest. You must choose four numbers from the whole numbers 2626 to 9595, with repeats allowed.

Choose four numbers that have the largest possible standard deviation.

(Give your answer in the form of comma separated list of numbers in ascending order.)

Answer #1

Standard deviation is a measure of how much the values in a dataset are dispersed or far away from their mean.

Formula for Standard deviation is

So To maximize Standard deviation we need to maximize the difference of the xi and mean() for most of the values in dataset .

So the most dispersed no. with respect to each other are 2626 and 9595 .

Finally I choose 2626, 2626, 9595 , 9595 as four nos. with maximum standard deviation because their mean is mid point of 2626 and 9595 , and all four values are very much far away from the mean 6110.5.

Final answer = **2626, 2626 , 9595 , 9595**

This is a standard deviation contest and you cannot use
a calculator. You must choose from those four numbers
given below to answer the question.
(Hint: standard deviation measures the average deviation
between data values and the mean)
(c) Choose all (if any) of those four numbers that have the same
standard deviation. (Select all that apply.)
(A) 1, 1, 1, 1
(B) 0, 0, 1, 1
(C) 0, 1, 2, 3
(D) 0, 0, 10, 10
(E) 7, 8,...

You are working on a research project in which you must control
the direction of travel of electrons using deflection plates. You
have devised the apparatus shown in the figure below. The plates
are of length ℓ = 0.250 m and are separated by a distance d = 1.65
cm. Electrons are fired at vi = 4.90 ✕ 106 m/s into a uniform
electric field from the left edge of the lower, positive plate,
aimed directly at the right edge...
