    Statistics Problem...




    I have been trying to help my mother the best I can with her studies but we have came across a very large wall we can not seem to take down.
    The question presented is:

    Assume the within-group deviation is 108.45 and the between-group deviation is 48.68. Calculate the total deviation.

    We are not understanding something with this question, any help would be very grateful.

    Is this coming from some sort of Analysis of Variance type course? Are you familiar with the idea of sums of squares?

    We were not working with Variance this was just the next problem. When we tried googling it to find help we are assuming it is some sort of Variance now.
    We feel like she is lacking need to know information, was going to write and email to the teacher but it takes days to get a response.

    Is it perhaps a quality control course, talking about reproducibility and repeatability?

    Provide lots of details please. What course is it? What have you covered? What are the other question topics?


    Is this a multi-part question?
