Hi

I've been experiencing some trouble with the function Variance.
Whenever I use Variance on a data list of length 5 or 7 (which I generate using the function RandomVariate)Variance works just fine. But if I try with a sample size of 10 or bigger Mathematica suddenly refuses to evaluate the expression. If anyone could help me around this problem I would be grateful. I use Mathematica 8.
