Unformatted text preview: t, at the end, the trouble of rounding will appear. It would be useful to derive another formula that does not call upon µ until a very late stage. We shall derive a practical formula for σ . practical i 2 2 ( x1 − µ) 2 = x1 − 2 µx1 + µ2 2 ( x N − µ) 2 = x N − 2 µx N + µ2 _____________________________ ( xi − µ) 2 = ∑xi2 − 2 µ∑xi + Nµ2 ∑ Now, x µ=∑ i N , so that ∑ x = Nµ i ∴ ∑ ( xi − µ ) 2 = ∑ xi2 − 2 µ ( Nµ ) + Nµ 2 = ∑ xi2 − Nµ 2 ∴σ = ( xi − µ ) 2 ∑ N = xi2 ∑ N − µ 2 →(2) Example 3: Use formula (2) to compute Use σ for set A.
