STDEV()

• Parameters are set of numbers.
• STDEV(), estimates standard deviation based on a sample.

Description

• This function gives the Standard Deviation based on a given sample.
• Standard Deviation is the quantity expressed by, how many members of a group differ from the mean value of the group.
• It is the used as a measure of the dispersion or variation in a distribution.
• It is calculated as the square root of variance.
• In , Parameters are set of numbers to find the Standard Deviation.
• Here First parameter is required. From the second parameter are optional.
• Instead of numbers, we can use the single array or a reference of a array.
• is defined by the formula: where is the sample mean of and is the total numbers of the given data.

• It is calculated using method.
• This function is considering our given data is the sample of the population.
• Suppose it should consider the data as the entire population, we can use the STDEVP function.
• The arguments can be be either numbers or names, array,constants or references that contain numbers.
• Suppose the array contains text,logical values or empty cells, like that values are not considered.
• When we are entering logical values and text representations of numbers as directly, then the arguments are counted.
• Suppose the function have to consider the logical values and text representations of numbers in a reference , we can use the STDEVA function.
• This function will return the result as error when
1. Any one of the argument is non-numeric.
2. The arguments containing the error values or text that cannot be translated in to numbers.
