VAR.S: Google Sheets Formulae Explained

How do you use VAR.S in Google Sheets?

The Google Sheets VAR.S function calculates the variance of a set of data points. The function takes two arguments: the first is the array of data points, and the second is the number of data points in the array. The function then calculates the variance of the data points and returns the result.

What is the syntax of VAR.S in Google Sheets?

The syntax of VAR.S in Google Sheets is as follows:

=VAR.S(array, dimension)

This function calculates the standard deviation of the values in the array, using the dimension as the sample size.

What is an example of how to use VAR.S in Google Sheets?

In Google Sheets, the VAR.S function is used to calculate the standard deviation of a series of values. The function takes a single argument, which is the series of values that you want to calculate the standard deviation for. The function then calculates the standard deviation for the values in the series and returns the result. An example of how to use the VAR.S function in Google Sheets is shown below.

What are some similar formulae to VAR.S in Google Sheets?

The VAR.S function in Google Sheets is used to calculate the variance of a series of numbers. There are a few similar formulae that can be used to calculate the variance of a series of numbers in Google Sheets. These formulae are VAR.P, VAR.A, and VAR.I. The VAR.P function in Google Sheets is used to calculate the population variance of a series of numbers. The VAR.A function in Google Sheets is used to calculate the variance of a series of numbers using the sample size. The VAR.I function in Google Sheets is used to calculate the variance of a series of numbers using the population standard deviation.
