# The following are some particulars of the distribution of weights of boys and girls in a class:

Which of the distributions is more variable?

Answer :

Here SD(Boys) is 3 and SD (girls) = 2

Coefficient variability =

Coefficient variance (Boys) =

Cv (Boys) = 5

Coefficient variance (Girls) =

Cv (Girls) = 4.4

**Hence, Cv Boys is greater than Cv girls,then the distribution of weights of boys is more variable than that of girls**

If the sum of the squares of deviations for 10 observations taken from their mean is 2.5, then write the value of standard deviation.

RD Sharma - MathematicsThe mean and standard deviation of 18 observations are found to be 7 and 4 respectively. On rechecking it was found that an observation 12 was misread as 21. Calculate the correct mean and standard deviation.
