Let $X$ be a random variable whose possible values $x_1, x_2, ..., x_n$ occur with probabilities $p(x_1), p(x_2), ..., p(x_n)$ respectively. Then if $\mu$ is the mean of $X$, what is the standard deviation of $X$?

Standard Deviation = $\sqrt Variance$.
Variance = $\sum_{i=1}^{n}p_i\;x_i^2-\mu^2$
Therefore Standard Deviation = $\sqrt (\sum_{i=1}^{n}p_i\;x_i^2-\mu^2)$

Let X be a discrete random variable whose probability distribution is defined as follows:\[P(X=x)=\left \{\begin{array}{1 1}k(x+1) & for\;x=1,2,3,4\\2kx & for\;x=5,6,7\\0 & otherwise\end{array} \right.\]Where k is a constant.Calculate\[(i)\;the\;value\;of\;k\quad(ii)\;E(X)\quad(iii)\;standard\;deviation\;of\;X\]
