(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

This is my data:42.4, 65.7, 29.8, 58.7, 52.1, 55.8, 57.0, 68.7, 67.3, 67.3, 54.3, 54.0I need to find the standard deviation of this list of data.

2. Relevant equations standard deviation= [tex] : s^2=\frac{\sum_{i=1}^n(x_i -\overline{x})}{n-1}[/tex]Actually the standard deviation is the square root of this expression.

3. I can use a statistics package like minitab or excell to solve this but how would I do it my hand? where would I start?[/b]
