Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have taken 5 samples and found that my average concentration is 5 mg, with a range of .003 mg in either direction. I would like to calculate the variance with only this information.

Is this possible? I am used to calculating the variance from the standard deviation, but I don't have this available.
