I need to compute a series of 20 measurements and produce a mean & standard deviation quickly. this is for a timed exam. I have the manual and tried to follow their steps to no satisfaction. Please help

Check out chapter 11 in the user's guide. This chapter gives you the run down on how to calculate what you are looking for.

Mean absolute deviation.

Let's break it down into its components.

Mean - Average

Absolute - absolute value - sign doesn't matter - if negative, make positive

Deviation - difference from the mean

Let's do an example. Population 3 7 4 2. Total 16. Mean (Average) 16/4 = 4.

Deviations

3 - 4 = -1 absolute value 1

7 - 4 = 3

4 - 4 = 0

2 - 4 = -2 absolute value 2

Sum of these deviations 1 + 3 + 0 + 2 = 6

Mean (average) of these deviations is 6 / 4 = 1.5.

Good luck,

Paul

To convert an x value to a z-score, the formula is:

(x value - mean)/standard deviation

Example: We have a number of height measurements that have a mean of 65.25 and a standard deviation of 2.84. One value is 68.5. To convert it to a z-score: (68.5-65.25)/2.84 = 1.144

Hope this helps!

The standard deviation is a measure on the variability of a number set from its average. Since all numbers in your set are the same, there is no variation from its average, and the standard deviation is 0.

Jill. She scored two standard deviations above the mean, while he only scored one-and-a-half standard deviations above the mean.

- Calculator must be in SD mode (standard deviation mode) :Press [MODE] [.]
- However, if [FIX] or [SCI] appears on display you must press [MODE][9] first.
- Data input always starts with [SHIFT][SAC], to clear the registers of old data.
- Type a number and press the [DATA] key, it is the [M+] key at the bottom right of keypad.

Press [SHIFT] [9] (sigma n-1) to get sample standard deviation

Press [SHIFT][8] (sigma n] for the population standard deviation

Press [SHIFT] [7] (xbar) for the mean

Press [SHIFT] [6] (n) for the number of data entries

Press [SHIFT] [5] (capital sigma x) for the sum of values

Press [SHIFT] [4] (capital sigma x to y) for the sum of squares of the values

For additional information you might consider taking a look at the calculator manual

Mode - 2 - STAT - 1(VAR) Then put your data: 25,34,13

Then press AC which is the clear button and then SHIFT - 1(STAT) - 5(VAR) 2 (X) =

Voila!
