Find the sample standard deviation of the dataset
$x = 634.08$, $649.81$, $643.32$, $648.78$, $624.71$, $632.34$, $629.87$, $642.69$, $642.29$, $642.89$, $629.26$, $628.81$, $632.52$.
Find the sample mean. Hint: The sample mean is given by the formula $\bar{x} = \dfrac{\sum x}{n}$.
$\bar{x} = \dfrac{\class{inputBox step1}{~\bbox[border:2px solid blue]{\strut\rlap{\class{inputReplace}{A1}}\hspace{54px}}~}}{\class{inputBox step1}{~\bbox[border:2px solid blue]{\strut\rlap{\class{inputReplace}{A2}}\hspace{54px}}~}} = \class{inputBox step1}{~\bbox[border:2px solid blue]{\strut\rlap{\class{inputReplace}{AR}}\hspace{54px}}~}$ $\bar{x} = \dfrac{8281.37}{13} = 637.02846154$
Complete the table.

Find the sample variance. Hint: The sample variance is given by the formula $s^2 = \dfrac{\sum (x - \bar{x})^2}{n-1}$.
$s^2 = \dfrac{\class{inputBox step3}{~\bbox[border:2px solid blue]{\strut\rlap{\class{inputReplace}{C1}}\hspace{80px}}~}}{\class{inputBox step3}{~\bbox[border:2px solid blue]{\strut\rlap{\class{inputReplace}{C2}}\hspace{80px}}~}} = \class{inputBox step3}{~\bbox[border:2px solid blue]{\strut\rlap{\class{inputReplace}{CR}}\hspace{100px}}~}$ $s^2 = \dfrac{817.02576923}{12} = 68.08548077$
Therefore, Hint: The standard deviation is the square root of the variance.
$s = \sqrt{\class{inputBox step4}{~\bbox[border:2px solid blue]{\strut\rlap{\class{inputReplace}{D1}}\hspace{100px}}~}} = \class{inputBox step4}{~\bbox[border:2px solid blue]{\strut\rlap{\class{inputReplace}{DR}}\hspace{100px}}~}$ $s = \sqrt{68.08548077} = 8.25139266$
