Sorry, I wrote the wrong number of observation. It should be 1184.
I saw on the book that variance is defined by sd^2. If variation is a
different concept from variance and defined by sd^2*(n-1) ? Since I
formerly took variance and variation as the same.

Because the Xtotvar is the "total X variation", measured by sum(X^2)
(where X has been centered). With 14 variables, scaled to sd == 1,
and 1200 observations, you should get Xtotvar == 14*(1200-1) ==
16786. (Maybe you have 1184 observations: 14*1183 == 16562.)
