Average your name 8:00 AM
For your first Stat Talk assignment, you're going to practice a basic statistical computation and type it into the forum using its typesetting tools. Here's the problem:
Use your first name to generate a list of integers by finding the position of each of up to the first five letters of your name in the alphabet. For example, my name is "Mark"; thus my list of numbers is:
[13, 1, 18 , 11].
Then, use the formulaic definitions to compute the mean and sample standard deviation of the resulting numeric data. Be sure to type out your computation as well as the result.
