Question: How to calculate the rms deviation from the mean of the number of counts

April 08 2014 lemelinm 1350


Hi everybody,

I have never done statistics in Maple.  In a simple calculation, I need to calculate the RMS of 55 numbers.  The average of those numbers is 100484.3 and it is given that the RMS is 1.28 counts.  I have the a list of the 55 numbers.  Since I don't need a demonstration, it would help me a lot if you could tell me how to load the data from a *.txt file (one number per line), and use the appropriate commands to obtaine the result that is only given.

For the moment, I only need the steps to proceed with the calculations and how to do it in Maple.

Thank you very much in advance for your help.
