## Question

# What is the square of the standard deviation is called?

We will use the concept of statistics and the relationship between standard deviation and variance.

## Answer: Variance = (Standard Deviation)^{2}

Let us see how we will use the concept of statistics and the relationship between standard deviation and variance.

**Explanation:**

Let us keep it simple, the deviation from the mean is squared and called the standard deviation from the mean. The sum of the standard deviations from the mean is known as the variance.

You can use Cuemath's online Standard Deviation Calculator to find the standard deviation.
