# The mean and standard deviations of two brands of watches are given below: Brand-I Brand-II Mean 36 months 48 months S.D. 8 months 10 months Calculate coefficient of variation of the two brands and i - Mathematics and Statistics

Sum

The mean and standard deviations of two brands of watches are given below:

 Brand-I Brand-II Mean 36 months 48 months S.D. 8 months 10 months

Calculate a coefficient of variation of the two brands and interpret the results.

#### Solution

Here, bar("x"_"I") = 36, bar("x"_"II") = 48, sigma_"I" = 8, sigma_"II" = 10

C.V. (I) = 100 xx sigma_"I"/bar("x"_"I") = 100 xx 8/36 = 22.22%

C.V. (II) = 100 xx sigma_"II"/bar("x"_"II") = 100 xx 10/48 = 20.83%

Since, C.V. (I) > C.V. (II)
∴ brand I is more variable.
