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

Quick question:

Is this valid:

[tex](\frac{standard \left \left deviation}{average} * 100)[/tex]?

The standard deviation is just a measure of the spread of the data from the average, so by doing the above, is it retaining its 'representation' as a measure of spread, just as a percentage of the average form?

Thanks in advance.
