# Mean, Standard Deviation, Coefficient of variation

A researcher measured the average daily gains (in kg/day) of 20 beef cattle; typical values were: 1.39, 1.57, 1.44,

The mean of the data was 1.461 and the standard deviation was 0.178

a) Express the mean and standard deviation in lb/day (hint 1kg = 2.20lb)

b) Calculate the coefficient of variation when the data are expressed (i) in kg/day (ii) in lb/day
