VAR
Returns the sample variance.
Syntax:
VAR(number1; number2; ... number30)
- number1 to number30 are up to 30 numbers or ranges containing numbers.
- VAR returns the variance where number1 to number30 are a sample of the entire population. With N values in the sample, the calculation formula is:
Example:
VAR(2; 6; 4)
- returns 4.
Issues:
- Calc assumes that logical values are 1 (TRUE) and 0 (FALSE). Excel ignores logical values.
