1. add and divide by 5 gives the mean, not the range

the range is hi-low = 103-83=20

The mean is 96.4
To find the std,

(1) take the difference of each value from the mean
(2) square that difference
(3) add up all those squares
(4) take the square root.
That is the std.

Better review that section again. Visit

for a nice simple explanation and example.
