# Standard Deviation And Median Of Running A Program

Question

Many times, we are required to use statistical measures to try and construct a problem. We run a program for a 10 different inputs. The times are measures in 1-second intervals and none of them took 0 secs.

a. Suppose the standard deviation of a set of times we run the program is 0. What does this tell you about the running times?

b. Suppose that the mean of the times is 1000.9 sec while the median is 1 sec. Explain what do you know about the program running times for all 10 different inputs?

c. Assume now that the mean of the times is 1000.9 sec while the median is 1 sec and the variance is 9998000.  Explain what do you know about the program running times for all 10 different inputs

Summary

The question belongs to Statistics and it discusses about standard deviation of a program being run for 0 seconds.

Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
