Set up the formula for variance. The variance of a set of values is a measure of the spread of its values.
s2=∑i=1n⁡(xi-xavg)2n-1
Set up the formula for variance for this set of numbers.
s=(14-15)2+(12-15)2+(16-15)2+(20-15)2+(10-15)2+(18-15)26-1
Simplify the result.
Simplify the numerator.
Subtract 15 from 14.
s=(-1)2+(12-15)2+(16-15)2+(20-15)2+(10-15)2+(18-15)26-1
Raise -1 to the power of 2.
s=1+(12-15)2+(16-15)2+(20-15)2+(10-15)2+(18-15)26-1
Subtract 15 from 12.
s=1+(-3)2+(16-15)2+(20-15)2+(10-15)2+(18-15)26-1
Raise -3 to the power of 2.
s=1+9+(16-15)2+(20-15)2+(10-15)2+(18-15)26-1
Subtract 15 from 16.
s=1+9+12+(20-15)2+(10-15)2+(18-15)26-1
One to any power is one.
s=1+9+1+(20-15)2+(10-15)2+(18-15)26-1
Subtract 15 from 20.
s=1+9+1+52+(10-15)2+(18-15)26-1
Raise 5 to the power of 2.
s=1+9+1+25+(10-15)2+(18-15)26-1
Subtract 15 from 10.
s=1+9+1+25+(-5)2+(18-15)26-1
Raise -5 to the power of 2.
s=1+9+1+25+25+(18-15)26-1
Subtract 15 from 18.
s=1+9+1+25+25+326-1
Raise 3 to the power of 2.
s=1+9+1+25+25+96-1
s=10+1+25+25+96-1
s=11+25+25+96-1
s=36+25+96-1
