The standard deviation is the square root of the variance.  The variance is the average of the squared differences from the mean.

The mean (avg) = 14.8

So we'd find by:

`sqrt(((10-14.8)^2 + (12-14.8)^2 + (15-14.8)^2 + (18-14.8)^2 + (11-14.8)^2 + (13-14.8)^2 + (14-14.8)^2 + (16-14.8)^2 + (19-14.8)^2 + (20-14.8)^2)/10)`

` `

Therefore, the standard deviation is :`sqrt(10.56)`

Standard Deviation = 3.25 rounded 2 places
