Take the mean value of each class i to represent the value of that class. In this case, this is the middle value of each class.
The mean is given by
`Sigma_(i=1)^5 (x_i f(x_i))/N`
where `x_i` is the class value of the `i`th class , `f(x_i)` is the frequency of that class value and N is the total frequency over all the 5 classes.
`therefore` mean `bar x` = (32(18) + 35(18) + 38(10) + 41(15) + 44(5))/(18 + 18 + 10 + 15 + 5)
= 2421/66 = 36.7
The variance is given by
`Sigma_(i=1)^5 (f(x_i)(x_i - barx)^2)/N`
`= (18(32-36.7)^2 + 18(35-36.7)^2 + 10(38-36.7)^2 + 15(41-36.7)^2 + 5(44-36.7)^2)/66`
`= 1010.34/66 = 15.3`
The standard deviation is the square root of the variance,
so the standard deviation = `sqrt(15.3) = 3.91`
mean = 36.7, variance = 15.3 and standard deviation = 3.91
