        the mean and the standard deviation of a data of 8 items are 25 and 5 respectively. If two items 15 and 25 are added to this data, then the variance of the new data is

							Ans. is 8.We know that formula of variance is [∑(xi – )2 ] / N, where i = 1,2, …, N ,                    xi are observations,   is mean, N is number of observations.Solving this we get variance = [∑xi2 – N2] / N  =  (∑xi2 / N) – 2 and standard deviation is square root of variance.Initial mean (1) = 25 = ∑xi / 8  Initial standard deviation () = 5    Initial variance (2) = 52 = 25 = (∑xi2 / 8) – 12   25 = (∑xi2 / 8) – 252   or   (∑xi2 / 8) = 25 + 625 = 650∑xi2 = 650 x 8 = 5200. Now, finally there are 10 items. Final mean, 2  = (1 x 8 + 15 + 25) / 10 = (25 x 8 +15 + 25) / 10 = 240 / 10  =  24.Final variance = (final ∑xi2 / final N) – 2 2  =  {(5200 + 152 + 252) / 10} – 242                        =  {(5200 + 225 + 625) / 10} – 576                       =  605 – 576                       =  29.
