Question Which of the data sets represented by the following
histograms has the smallest standard deviation?

A histogram has a horizontal axis from 0 to 140 in increments
of 20 and a vertical axis from 0 to 140 in increments of 20. The
histogram has vertical bars of width 3, starting at the horizontal
axis value of 58. The approximate heights of the bars are as
follows, where the horizontal axis label is listed first and the
approximate height is listed second: 58, 1; 61, 10; 64, 36; 67, 78;
70, 150; 73, 150; 76, 138; 79, 72; 82, 22; 85, 5.
