Con­tin­u­ing this ex­am­ple, what will be the stan­dard de­vi­a­tion?


The av­er­age square de­vi­a­tion from 1.5 is:

\frac 12(1-1.5)^2+\frac 12(2-1.5)^2=\frac 14

Tak­ing a square root, the stan­dard de­vi­a­tion is 0.5. In this case the stan­dard de­vi­a­tion is the same as the max­i­mum de­vi­a­tion, since the de­vi­a­tion from 1.5 is al­ways 0.5 re­gard­less what you throw.
