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 . . .Welcome to the 2019 Experimental Design Question Marathon!!!
Question: What is the formula for standard deviation?
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 likes = sqrt((Σ(y - ȳ)^2)/n-1)
[math]s = \sqrt{\frac{\sum(y - \bar{y})^2}{n-1}}[/math] Or, you can use x instead of y: [math]s = \sqrt{\frac{\sum(x - \bar{x})^2}{n-1}}[/math] Or, you can write the formula for population standard deviation with a fancy Greek letter: [math]\sigma = \sqrt{\frac{\sum(x- \bar{x})^2}{n}}[/math]

(a): Yeah I get that, but it's hard not to comment once you've taken a stat coursea.

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?
b. Yeah I tend to type the words because I use online graphing utilities (e.g. desmos) and it's easier to type than to click.(a): Yeah I get that, but it's hard not to comment once you've taken a stat coursea. Yes it's out of the scope for this event

(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.
Can someone else can ask a question in my place?Your turn.s = sqrt((Σ(y - ȳ)^2)/n-1)Welcome to the 2019 Experimental Design Question Marathon!!!
Question: What is the formula for standard deviation?
Sure. State the formula for percent error.
the absolute value of the difference between experimental value and accepted value and divide that by accepted value.
