The standard deviation is a measure to understand how much data deviates from the mean value. The data may be grouped or non-grouped where non-group data is a list of data.
In this example program, we compute the standard deviation for input non-grouped data and output the result.
Learn the basics of C programming before you begin with this example. Continue reading if you know the basics.
In the next section, we will discuss the problem in detail.
The standard deviation is a measure useful in comparing two sets of data when their mean value is the same. To calculate the standard deviation we use the following formula in this example C program.
Where is the mean value.
Given the formula, you can find standard deviation in the following steps.
