Calculating Standard Deviation

numero = 298
interpreted = N
texte = I needed to do this for one of my hobby sites, so I thought I would share. Good if you have a scoring or ratings system on your site.

make sure that you have a tab on this line as indicated: sdev[index]<tab>[math][interpret][dev[index]][/interpret]*[interpret][dev[index]][/interpret][/math]
