Find the sample standard deviation of the dataset
$x = 53.77$, $67.74$, $53.93$, $65.03$, $51.25$, $73.94$, $56.94$, $64.86$, $73.92$, $52.61$, $62.67$, $49.42$, $57.42$.
Find the sample mean. Hint: The sample mean is given by the formula $\bar{x} = \dfrac{\sum x}{n}$.
$\bar{x} = \dfrac{\class{inputBox step1}{~\bbox[border:2px solid blue]{\strut\rlap{\class{inputReplace}{A1}}\hspace{54px}}~}}{\class{inputBox step1}{~\bbox[border:2px solid blue]{\strut\rlap{\class{inputReplace}{A2}}\hspace{54px}}~}} = \class{inputBox step1}{~\bbox[border:2px solid blue]{\strut\rlap{\class{inputReplace}{AR}}\hspace{54px}}~}$ $\bar{x} = \dfrac{783.5}{13} = 60.26923077$
Complete the table.

Find the sample variance. Hint: The sample variance is given by the formula $s^2 = \dfrac{\sum (x - \bar{x})^2}{n-1}$.
$s^2 = \dfrac{\class{inputBox step3}{~\bbox[border:2px solid blue]{\strut\rlap{\class{inputReplace}{C1}}\hspace{80px}}~}}{\class{inputBox step3}{~\bbox[border:2px solid blue]{\strut\rlap{\class{inputReplace}{C2}}\hspace{80px}}~}} = \class{inputBox step3}{~\bbox[border:2px solid blue]{\strut\rlap{\class{inputReplace}{CR}}\hspace{100px}}~}$ $s^2 = \dfrac{837.89349231}{12} = 69.82445769$
Therefore, Hint: The standard deviation is the square root of the variance.
$s = \sqrt{\class{inputBox step4}{~\bbox[border:2px solid blue]{\strut\rlap{\class{inputReplace}{D1}}\hspace{100px}}~}} = \class{inputBox step4}{~\bbox[border:2px solid blue]{\strut\rlap{\class{inputReplace}{DR}}\hspace{100px}}~}$ $s = \sqrt{69.82445769} = 8.35610302$
