8.      A teacher was interested in knowing the amount of physical activity that his students were engaged in daily. He randomly sampled six students in his class and recorded the number of minutes that they exercised in the past day. The numbers were 30mins, 40 mins, 60 mins, 80 mins, 20 mins, and 85 mins. What's the sample standard deviation? (show work)
