Variance and Standard deviation for grouped data

Let $x_i, i=1,2, \cdots , n$ be $n$ observations then the mean of $X$ is denoted by $\overline{X}$ and is given by $$ \begin{eqnarray*} \overline{X}& =\frac{1}{n}\sum_{i=1}^{n}x_i \end{eqnarray*} $$

Formula

Variance of $X$ is denoted by $s_{x}^2$ and is given by

$s_x^2 =\frac{1}{n-1}\sum_{i=1}^{n}(x_i -\overline{x})^2 =\frac{1}{n-1}\bigg(n\sum_{i=1}^{n}x_i^2-\big(\sum_{i=1}^nx_i\big)^2\bigg)$

The standard deviation of $X$ is defined as the positive square root of variance. The standard deviation of $X$ is given by

$s_x =\sqrt{s_x^2}$
