a) The range is simply the difference between the largest and the smallest.

b) I'm sure you can add them up to find Σx and add up the squares to find Σx^{2} by yourself!

c) The sample variance is \(s^2=\frac{\sum{(x-\mu)^2}}{n-1}\quad\text{ where }\mu\text{ is the mean and n is the number of terms}\\s \text{ is simply the square root of }s^2\)

d) The population variance is similar to the sample variance except that the divisor is just n instead of n-1.
