    Answer:

    Sample Variance = 6.008

    Sample standard deviation = 2.451

    Step-by-step explanation:

    We are given the following in the question:

    10.6, 12.6, 14.8, 18.2, 12.0, 14.8, 12.2, 15.6

    Formula:

    [tex]\text{Variance} = \displaystyle\frac{\sum (x_i -\bar{x})^2}{n-1}[/tex]  

    where [tex]x_i[/tex] are data points, [tex]\bar{x}[/tex] is the mean and n is the number of observations.  

    [tex]Mean = \displaystyle\frac{\text{Sum of all observations}}{\text{Total number of observation}}[/tex]

    [tex]Mean =\displaystyle\frac{110.8}{8} = 13.85[/tex]

    Sum of squares of differences = 42.06

    [tex]s^2 = \dfrac{42.06}{7} = 6.008[/tex]

    Standard Deviation =

    [tex]s = \sqrt{s^2} = \sqrt{6.008} = 2.451[/tex]
