### Solution:

Given, $\frac{{x}_{1}+{x}_{2}+{x}_{3}+{x}_{4}}{4}=11$

$⇒{x}_{1}+{x}_{2}+{x}_{3}+{x}_{4}=44\to \left(i\right)$

Also, $\frac{{x}_{5}+{x}_{6}+{x}_{7}+{x}_{8}+{x}_{9}+{x}_{10}}{6}=96\to \left(ii\right)$

from (i) and (ii),$\sum _{i=1}^{10} {x}_{i}=44+96=140$

Now, Variance $\left({\sigma }^{2}\right)=\frac{\sum _{i=1}^{10} {x}_{i}^{2}}{10}-{\left(\frac{\sum _{i=1}^{10} {x}_{i}}{10}\right)}^{2}$

$\therefore$ Standard deviation $\left(\sigma \right)=2$  Register to Get Free Mock Test and Study Material
