    I have found the mean of some grouped data on a table correctly by using coding

    i did this by using coding, finding the coded value and multiplying it by the class width and adding the value that i took away in the beggining

    how do to go from getting the mean by coding to the standard deviation now? using my table that i've added the coded y and fy and fy^2

    tell me if this is confusing

    Consider how the modifications you made to the data would affect the extent to which they deviated from the mean value.
