Given the following data set, compute the arithmetic mean, median, variance, standard deviation; find the greatest and the smaller value, the sum of all values, the square of the sum of all values, the sum of the square of all values; assigne the ranks and add them, assigning the ranks to the first 6 values and add those.

10, 2, 19, 24, 6, 23, 47, 24, 54, 77

Extremely simple to perform in R, deliberately created to familiarize with some statistical functions that can serve us in the future. Not carry over mathematical formulas, which you can find in any book of mathematics, or Wikipedia.
