  1. I have no idea of the significance of the ones and rectangles of dots. If you want a square root symbol (โˆš), use the (option + v) keys. The standard deviation for a sample is usually indicated with s, but the mean of a population is indicated by ยต (option + m).

    Subtract each of the scores from the sample mean and square each difference. Find the sum of these squares. Divide that by the number of scores to get variance.

    Standard deviation = square root of variance

    Choose the equation from that information.
