If you're forever cleaning cobwebs, it's time to get rid of the spiders.

Can you explain where your formula is for computing the desired value?
If you don't understand my response, don't ignore it, ask a question.

}
averageSales = sum / numberOfAssociates;
sum = 0;
for ( int i = 1; i<= numberOfAssociates; i++)
{double diff = (averageSalesteam[i].getSales());
sum = sum + diff*diff;
}
double variance = sum / ( numberOfAssociates1 );
stdDev = sqrt (variance)
So I have worked on it some more in this is what I have...I get an error message(erroneous symbol) for stdDev = sqrt (variance)

Ok I fixed that...
should be Math.sqrt instead of sqrt
Having trouble displaying in results now when i run the program
