Unformatted text preview: Step 2 For each outcome (row), subtract the expected return from the individual return outcome (see Table 5.5, pg. 203 to see this worked for you). Step 3 Square the differences from Step 2. Step 4 Multiply the squared differences from Step 3 by the associated probabilities. Step 5 Sum the products from Step 4. Step 6 Take the square root of the sum from Step 5. On HP 10-BII calculator, when number is in display, use SHIFT and the [ - ] key to get the square root....
