Answer:Sample Variance = 6.008

Sample standard deviation = 2.451

Step-by-step explanation:We are

given the followingin 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]
