First find the mean of the list of numbers

5 + 9 + 11 +4 +8 + 9 + 12   /  7    = 8.286   

Now subtract the mean from each number

-3.286    .714    2.714    -4.286   -.286   .714   3.714       Now square all of these numbers   

                                    then add that together   and find the mean

                                               then  take the square root to find

      S.D. = 2.7
