Carry out the test. The calculator will display a p= value (or if you draw it - it will be the shaded area). This is the type one error. Why? Well if H0 is true then your t-test will come from this distribution. Think of the bell shape as a histogram - you have one value you are comparing to it. Is this value typical of this "histogram"? If the value is near the centre of the bell it is reasonable that it came from it. If it is in the extreme it probably didn't and so we reject H0. The type one error is the probability that we reject H0 given that it is true. H0 assumes the t value comes from this distribution - so it is the probability of getting this value or something more extreme. (i.e. the shaded area. Incidently this is the same way of finding the type one error for any test.

How should I set my ti 83 plus for my statistics course? I keep trying to sort L1 in ascending order and every time I get ERR: INVALID DIM 1: QUIT ...

If some of the lists are missing press the STAT button then select SetUpEditor and ENTER to restore all of them (without data, of course.)
If the statistical plots are turned OFF you can turn one of them back ON again. Press SHIFT Y1= to access STAT PLOTS. Press 4:Plots Off. A good habit to avoid problems. After you turn all plots OFF, you must turn one of them ON if you intend to draw statistical graphs. You can for example Turn Plot1 ON.
  1. To do so Press SHIFT Y1=, select say 1:Plot 1 ENTER.
  2. Highlight ON and press ENTER.
  3. Press DownArrow to move to line TYPE
  4. Then you can set the plot type. You have 6 choices. Use the left/Right arrows to select one of the 6. The selected plot type icon will remain highlighted when cursor is moved.
  5. Use DownArrow to move to XLIST line and select the x-values LIST. etc.
  6. When finished Press 2nd QUIT to exit the stat plts configuration settings.
One statistical value that may be of interest to you is the R, R^2 coefficients. To have it displayed (if the regression model has it), you must set DiagnosticsON.

Press SHIFT 0 to enter catalog. Press x^-1 key to jump to the first command that starts with D.
Scroll down to reach DiagnosticsON, highlight it and press ENTER then ENTER.
