the set of data. Does the standard deviation change much ifthe longest playing time is deleted? 462 20?V 280 230 239 297 239 243 229 310 29?V 219 199 212 320 291 First, ﬁnd the range of the sample. The range ofa set of data values is the difference between the maximum data value
and the minimum data value. _ (maximum data value)  (minimum data

The variance, 32, of a sample is found by using the formula 52 = ﬂ—l), where x is the variable used to represent
11 — the individual data values, ; is the mean of the sample, and n is the size of the sample. The mean, ;, of a sample is found with the formula below, where x is the variable used to represent the individual data
values, and n is the number of data values in the sample. 2 x (— sum of all data values x =

 The standard deviation can be found using a formula or by taking the square root of the variance. Since the variance has
already been calculated, take its square root, rounding to three decimal places. The square root of the variance is 40.?34.
Therefore, the standard deviation of the sample without the longest playing time is approximately 40.34 seconds.
Compare this to the standard deviation of the sample that includes the longest playing time, approximately 65.186 seconds. Note that there is a signiﬁcant decrease in standard deviation when the longest playing time is deleted. Page 4 ...
