Sounds like homework! Have a look at the posting guidlines.

Show us your effort, and then perhaps someone will help you improve it.

Your work has quite a lot of errors. I have worked through some of them for you but I have run out of time and don't think I ought to do all your homework for you, so the standard devaition calculation still needs correction. You should also check manually that the various calculations are in fact correct. I trust you will learn from this rather than blindly copy it.

<script type="text/javascript">

function divide_string() {

var data=prompt("Enter your data (separate with a space)","");

data = data.replace(/[^\d\s]/g,"") // strip non-numeric

data = data.replace(/\s+/g, " "); //strip double spaces

new_array = data.split(" "); // spliting the new array

new_array = new_array.sort(function(a,b){return a - b})

var len= new_array.length; //length of array or number of elements

var halfLen = len/2; // half length of the number of elements

var med = Math.floor(halfLen);// find the median

if(med == halfLen) {

median = (new_array[med+1] - new_array[med])/2;

}

else {

median = new_array[med];

}

var max=new_array[len-1];

var min=new_array[0];

var sum = 0;

var stddevn = 0;

for (i=0; i<len; i++) {

sum = sum + (parseFloat(new_array[i])); // sum

}

var a= "";// each data squared then the sum of it

var b= (sum*sum)/len; // part two of stddevn ( means sum of the data squared divided by number of elements

var mean = (sum/len); // mean

stddevn = Math.sqrt((a-b)/(len-1)); // standard deviation

alert ("Array: "+new_array+", The mean is: " + mean + " The standard deviation is: " + stddevn+ " The median is: " + median + " The maximum is: " + max +" The min is: " + min)

}

Here is a script to calculate the standard devaition:-

<script type = "text/javascript">

var data = new Array("73", "58", "67", "93", "33", "18", "147");

var deviation = new Array();

var sum = 0;

var devnsum = 0;

var stddevn = 0;

var len = data.length;

for (var i=0; i<len; i++) {

sum = sum + (data[i] * 1) // ensure number

}

var mean = (sum/len).toFixed(6); // 6 decimal places

for (i=0; i<len; i++) {

deviation[i] = data[i] - mean;

deviation[i] = deviation[i] * deviation[i];

devnsum = devnsum + deviation[i];

}

stddevn = Math.sqrt(devnsum/(len-1)).toFixed(6); // 6 decimal places

alert ("The mean is: " + mean + " The standard deviation is: " + stddevn)

thanks alot

could you tell me why you used a,b and used this function

new_array.sort(function(a,b){return a - b})

thanks for helping me

i realize that some of the equations were wrong but I was able to fix them

thanks once again

Sorry, I can't take over the role of your teacher. :D

var a=[1,2,3,4,5,6];

var len=a.length;

var med=len/2;

if (len%2==0)

median=(a[med]+a[med-1])/2;

else

median=a[Math.floor(med)];

alert(median); // RESULT 3.5

i really appreciate your help but when i did the first part i got the same answer as you but when i put it into my code and typed in teh same series of numbers it gave me the median of 22.5

Use alerts after each line to check the progress of the calculation. And be careful to ensure that your variables are numbers, not strings.

thanks for all of your help

I didn't realize you're from London oh I was there about a year ago and love London.
