**(solved) Calculate the standard deviation (statistics)**

## Homework Statement

From this table of values, I'm supposed to calculate the standard deviance

## Homework Equations

Up until this point, I've had no problem calculating the standard deviance with my calculator by going to STAT> CALC > 1 and entering the table.

## The Attempt at a Solution

This is was my method of solving it this time, and my answer was 4.40. However, the answer in the example says to "Assume that the standard deviance is 3.50." I don't understand the basis of making such an assumption. How can I calculate the standard deviance in a way that will result in 3.50 as my answer?
