## How to Find Root Mean Square?

**Root mean square(RMS) **is defined as the square root of the arithmetic mean of given data set or given numbers. Root mean square(RMS) is given by formula:

**Root mean square(RMS) = √{(x _{1}^{2} + x_{2}^{2} + x_{3}^{2} + .... + x_{n}^{2}) / n}**

Where x_{1}, x_{2}, ... are numbers from data set, and n is the number of terms in the data set.

**Solved Example:**

Find the root mean square for the following set of data: {1,3,7,4,5}?

**Solution:**

Given n = 5

Root mean square(RMS) = √{(x_{1}^{2} + x_{2}^{2} + x_{3}^{2} + .... + x_{n}^{2}) / n}

= √{(1^{2} + 3^{2} + 7^{2} + 4^{2} + 5^{2}) / 5}

= √20

= 4.472

Therefore, the root mean square is 4.472.
