The sample data provided is: 60, 24, 49, 76, 94, 93, 82, 63, 4, 16, 69, 2, 71, 99, 99, 90

To determine the variance and the standard deviation, first find the mean. The sum of the data is 991 that gives a mean of 61.9375

The variance is `sum(x - barx)^2/(n - 1)`

= 1128.72917

The standard deviation is given by `sqrt(sum(x - barx)^2/(n - 1))`. `sqrt(variance) = sqrt(1128.72917) = 33.59656`

For the data provided, variance is 1128.72917 and standard deviation is 33.59656
