# List L1 has a * in front and won't come up in the STATS

I can't use List 1 through the STAT function. When I look at the LIST function I find a *L1 and the star is telling me something, but I don't know what!

### How do i find grouped data in L1 and L2 on ti 82

I am not sure I understand but if it the same problem as in your other posted question, here is what I wrote.

Are the data in L1 and l2 in any way related? If they are (being x-values and y-values of some data set) then you need to do regression analysis (2-var stats)
If they are not related (connected) you can calculate the mean of each group separately.
Do 1-var stat by specifying the L1 list first (may be the default), get your average of the values in L1. Then you can do 1-var stat on the data in L2 by specifying the list L2 on the command line.
1-var L2 ENTER
Note: What I am describing here is valid for the TI 83 Plus/TI84 Plus, but I suspect the steps are similar to the TI 82.

### My TI-84 plus silver edition doesnt allow me to use the comma when using the 1-Var Stats button.. I can't use more then one list and I need the mean of both lists

Pay attention to the name: 1-var statistics mean you have ONLY one list of data. So you cannot use two. However if some data values are repeated you may choose to create a FREQuency list. So at most you have two list, one for the data values and the second for their frequency.
When you use the 1-var stat, specify the list that holds the data value (Xlist) and one the FREQ line specify the list that has the frequency

If your data values are in L1 and L2 or any pair of lists, then you should do 2-var stats. You will get the stats of both lists, you can also perform regressions, etc.

### I am curently taking Statistics and when I hit "stat" then enter information into the L1, L2 , L3 area etc then I go to stat again and press calc and choose option 1 then in the list area I need...

I have followed your description and entered bogus data in Lists L1, L2, and L3.
I hit STAT then CALC then Option 1, which is 1-Var Stats. In this context you have only one set of data. If the data set contains many repeated values you can enter the frequency for each (repeated) data item in List L2, inserting 1 if an item is not repeated.
Thus when you do 1-Var Statistics you have at most two Lists (L1 contains the data values, and L2 their frequencies).
If you press the 1-Var Stats calculation option, the calculator takes L1 as the default data list so you see List:L1 and the ALPHA cursor blinking
On the secoond line you see Frequency: and nothing else on the line.
On the third line you have Calculate.
If Your data is not in L1, you can change that by pressing the [2nd][2] (L2), or [2nd][3] (L3). Only one list is specified there, so no need for the comma to separate. (you are doing 1-var Stat).

If your frequency data is in L2 you must specify it on the line Frequency. However, since the ALPHA keyboard is activated you must deactivate it first by pressing the ALPHA key. After that press [2nd][2] to select L2 or [2nd][3] to specify L3
If there is no frequency list, leave the Line frequency empty.

### How do you get the table ([2ND GRAPH]) from the [STAT] [EDIT] [L1] [L2] list to appear with [Y1] in the second the column? The information appears in the scatter plot, but the information in the table does...

Instead of hitting the [table] button. You should hit the [stat] or [stats] button as I forget which it is. Then hit [enter] which will bring you to a stats list editor of some kind. You will want to enter the data for your x-axis in L1 and the data for your y-axis in L2. Once you have completed your lists, hit the [stat] button again and then click [right] or the right arrow in order to move to the section of calc. from number 4 down it will help create a graph of that type of function. lets say you think it is linear, so you hit [enter] on number 4 and then you will be at the home screen with LinReg already written. You just have to complete the statement and it will do it for you. hit the [2nd] [1] and then the comma button, then [2nd] [2] and [enter]. that will do it for you.

### When I entered my data in L2 because in L1 I don't know what happened is not on the screen then I press STAT and select CALC, then select 1- Var Stats and press enter I should be able to see the mean,...

When you select 1-Var Stats, specify L2. If you don't specify a list, the calculator will assume L1.

You can recreate L1 by pressing
2ND [{] 1 STO 2ND [L1]

{ is on the ( key.
L1 is on the 1 key.

### When i go to STAT and hit the enter button there is no L1 only L2 how do i reset this so i have L1

The easiest way is to recreate the list. Press 2ND [{] 1 STO 2ND [L1]

{ is the shifted function of the ( key, L1 is the shifted function of the 1 key.
