## Variance Calculator

Variance is a measure of how much numbers in a data set are spread out from the mean and each other.

##### Key Formula

The formula for variance ($$\sigma^2$$) is:

$\sigma^2 = \frac{\sum (X_i - \mu)^2}{N}$

##### How to Use the Variance Calculator

Input your data set into the calculator for instant variance calculation and other statistics.

##### Applications

Useful in academic research, data science, finance, and quality control for statistical analysis.

#### Frequently Asked Questions

1. How do you calculate variance?

Variance is calculated by taking the average of the squared differences from the Mean. Formula: $$\sigma^2 = \frac{\sum (X_i - \mu)^2}{N}$$.

2. What is the variance of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5?

Calculate the mean (3), find the squared differences, sum them up, and divide by 5.

3. What is the variance of 1, 3, 5, 7, 9?

Calculate the mean, find the squared differences, sum them up, and divide by 5.

4. Variance of 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24?

Calculate the mean, find squared differences, sum them, divide by 10.

5. Why do we calculate variance?

To understand the spread of data points in a dataset.

6. What do you mean by variance?

A measure of spread in a set of numbers.

7. What is the variance of 2, 4, 5, 6, 8, 17?

Calculate the mean, find squared differences, sum them, divide by 6.

8. What is the variance of 2, 4, 6, 8, 10?

Calculate the mean, squared differences, sum, divide by 5.

9. Mean deviation of 3, 10, 9, 4, 7, 9, 14?

Find the mean, calculate absolute differences, sum, divide by 7.

10. How to calculate variance in Excel?

Use VAR.P for population or VAR.S for a sample.

11. What is a high variance?

Indicates wide spread of data points from the mean.

12. What is an example of a variance?

Consider scores like 65, 70, 75, 80. Variance shows deviation from their average.
