Why is the computational formula easier to use when computing variance and standard deviation?

**PsyDAG**, Wednesday, February 6, 2013 at 2:00pmThe sum of the deviations (unsquared) from the mean should always = zero, since the mean serves as a fulcrum (balance point) for the distribution.

You need to square the sum of the scores rather than the sum of the squared deviations (squaring*each*scores deviation from the mean).
