Factor 2 out of 2.
x‾=2⋅(14+21)2(1)
Cancel the common factor.
x‾=2⋅(14+21)2⋅1
Rewrite the expression.
x‾=14+211
Divide 14+21 by 1.
x‾=14+21
x‾=14+21
x‾=14+21
Add 14 and 21.
x‾=35
Set up the formula for variance. The variance of a set of values is a measure of the spread of its values.
s2=∑i=1n⁡(xi-xavg)2n-1
Set up the formula for variance for this set of numbers.
s=(28-35)2+(42-35)22-1
Simplify the result.
