Question: What is the formula for standard deviation?
To dxu46: Technically, you need to specify whether it's sample standard deviation or population standard deviation because in rare cases you might have the population standard deviation, but maybe that's a little out of the scope of this event . . .Knyte_Xjn wrote:s = sqrt((Σ(y - ȳ)^2)/n-1)
To Knyte_Xjn (and whoever else might be interested in learning how to make mathematics equations look pretty): This paragraph is just a matter of preference and readability. If you don't want to deal with the hassle (which makes sense if you don't write formulae regularly), then you can just ignore this. Anyway, you can use the math tags on this forum to write mathematic formulae. If you don't know the format, I believe it's called , and you should get plenty of results if you just search up "how to write <whatever you want to write> in latex", since it's the standard way to typeset mathematics if you're a scientist or mathematician or whatever. To give an example, your answer would look like
- this
which I personally think is a lot nicer. Again, no worries if you don't understand what I'm doing here, and if you don't want to spend time figuring it out, don't bother.

a. Yes it's out of the scope for this event
b. Latex looks nicer but takes a bit more work, so why use it when you can communicate the same message in an easier way?

(a): Yeah I get that, but it's hard not to comment once you've taken a stat course
(b): For me honestly, it's around the same amount of work. Also, it's way easier typing \sum than typing an uppercase sigma on most keyboards and operating systems. I think mostly it's a matter of how often you type equations because it becomes second nature quite quickly.
