it is best to remember the formular of the SD= square of (1/n (a1-x)^2 + (a2-x)^2+.........)

from 1, now we replace a1 with 0.7 a1, x with 0.7 x as condition 1 tell us. Every thing reduce to 0.7

it is clear we can find new SD. DONT COUNT, just know it is sufficient.

from 2, we can not know the square of diffence between each number and average in the new set. not sufficient.


thank you very much :)
