Here is a counter-example:X = [ 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 5 ]min = 1max = 5mean = 2median = 2std = 1.1547 < 1.3038 Edit: Damn Matlab!! std(X) = 1.1547 and std(X,1) = 1.0954. The difference being whether we divide by N or N-1.
Yup. Misunderstanding. But I do agree with you that 'why' is the most confused and abuse of them all., what with the teleological, mechanistic, and intentional types of answers possible to such a question. If only we had separate words to represent each type of question.
