    Find the range and standard deviation of the set of data. 

    5​, 7​, 5​, 7​, 7​, 8​, 10

    The range is 5.

    The standard deviation is 1.603567451.

  • Sort the data from least to greatest

    5 , 5 , 7 , 7 , 7 , 8 , 10

    The range is the difference between the least and greatest term

    10 - 5 = 5

    Find the mean

    (5 + 5 + 7 + 7 + 7 + 8 + 10) / 7 =>

    (10 + 21 + 18) / 7 =>

    (28 + 21) / 7 =>

    49 / 7 =>

    7

    Sum the square of the differences between the mean and each value in the set

    (7 - 5)^2 + (7 - 5)^2 + (7 - 7)^2 + (7 - 7)^2 + (7 - 7)^2 + (7 - 8)^2 + (7 - 10)^2 =>

    2 * (7 - 5)^2 + 3 * (7 - 7)^2 + (7 - 8)^2 + (7 - 10)^2 =>

    2 * 2^2 + 3 * 0^2 + (-1)^2 + (-3)^2 =>

    2 * 4 + 3 * 0 + 1 + 9 =>

    8 + 0 + 1 + 9 =>

    18

    Divide that by the number of values in the set

    18/7

    That's the variance.  The standard deviation is the square root of that

    sqrt(18/7) =>

    sqrt(18 * 7 / 49) =>

    sqrt(9/49) * sqrt(2 * 7) =>

    3 * sqrt(14) / 7
