# Performing a standard deviation calulation using Casio fx-991ES

There is a STAT button where I can choose VAR, then I can choose the population SD formula: ymeansymboln-1.....what do I do now to perform the calculation? The manual that came with is no help...it shows me how to get that formula on the screen...but not what to do with it from there.

Hi,
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repair professionals here in the US.
Goodluck!

Hello,
I am happy that you found my solution helpful and even flattered that you copied it in this thread. By doing this, you gave me the opportunity to discover an error in my post. In fact, the calculator does provide a column for the frequency. If you enter nothing in the frequency column, all data items will have their frequency set to 1, by default.

Back to the current subject: How to get the variance (the square of the standard deviation).
When you finish entering your data:

1. Press the [AC] button to exit the data editor.
2. Press [****][STAT].
3. Press [5:Var] to open the statistical result selection screen.
4. Press [3: xSigma_n] or [4:xSigma_n -1] depending on what you are interested in (population or sample) standard deviation.
5. The screen echoes the symbol for the value selected (the value displayed on the bottom line may be 0 or an old value from a previous calculation: it is not the value you have just calculated).
6. Press [=] to display the current value of the SD chosen.
7. By doing this you are in fact storing it it answer memory.
8. All you have to do now is to raise it to power 2 by pressing the [x^2] key ( the one above the [HYP] key).
9. The calculator will display Ans^2.
10. Press [=] to display the value of the variance.
If you are not interested in the value of the standard deviation, but just want the variance, follow the foregoing procedure until step #5.
While the symbol xSigma_n or xSigma_n-1 is still displayed with the blinking cursor to its right, press the [x^2] key above the [HYP] key. The screen displays say xSigma_n ^2. Press [=] to calculate the variance.

As my motto says, I am always happy to help, but happier still when people show true appreciation.

Hope it helps.

Yes. The sample standard deviation is 2nd [sigma x n-1] and the population standard deviation is 2nd [sigma x n].

I took statistics last semester and I don't really remember how, but after you enter your data, you press SHIFT, then STAT (on the 1 key), then I think it's under 5 (VAR), and maybe Xon-1? Eh, funny how long you remember this stuff for....

Hello,
Not knowing what kind of probability calculations you want to perform, I can only show you how to access the distributions that this calculator has to offer.
After you enter your data and do the usual statistics, you press SHIFT STAT and select 7:Distr. You get acces to
1: P(
2:Q(
3:R( and
4: X to t, the variate.

See the exemples in the Appendix to the user's manual, in particular #059.

Hope it helps.

Here is what I gather from the picture of the faceplate.
You choose the standard deviation mode (SD) by pressing MODE 3.
You might have to choose 1-Var or 2-Var. (not sure, but 1-var for sure)
You enter a data item followed by the DATA (RUN) key. Keep entering data and pressing RUN.
While in SD MODE, if you press the 1 key you get the avregae xbar, if ****** you get the sum of squares of the entered data. Looking at the digit keys, They all have statistical markings: (A, B, and r) are for regression analysis, (7,8, 9). 2 has the population standard deviation sigma n x, 3 the sample SD, etc. That should get started. And please, experiment. There are not many variations, on th statistical theme on scientific calculators.
Hope it helps.

### How to calculate the standard deviation? casio power graphic fx-7400G Plus

Here are the capabilities of the Casio calculators.
The screen captures may not look like ones taken from the FX-7400G
plus display but the instructions are accurate.
In stat enter the values in List1 and the frequencies in List2 (if doing paired variable statistics)
Press the key corresponding to the CALC tab

Press the 1-var tab and you get the results as seen on the screen with title 1-variable.
Other screens show some two-variable stats or regressions.

Use you knowledge of sample standard deviations and
population standard deviation to select which is relevant to your case.
They are given by xsigma-n and xSigma n-1

### Can you please help me on how to calculate mean, median, mode, standard deviation calculation on casio fx-991ms scientific calculator

This will show you how to do statistics (calculate average, standard deviation, regressions etc.) as to the mode and median refer to the definitions.

TO COMPUTE STANDARD DEVIATION AND 2-VAR STATISTICS.

I assume you know the theory. I will show you the key strokes

For 1-Var statistics
Press [MODE][3:STAT] [1:1-VAR]. You are ready to enter values in the X column.
Enter a number and press [=]. Cursor jumps to second number to enter.
Keep entering numbers and pressing [=] till all numbers are in. Press the [=] key after the last one.
Press [AC] key to clear the screen.
Press [SHIFT] [STAT] (above digit 1.) then [5:Var]. Screen displays the statistical variables 1:n ;2: x bar; 3: x sigma n; 4:x sigma n-1.
Press the number corresponding to the statistical value you want, ex 1:n . The variable appears on screen. Press [=] and it will be displayed.
To display another variable press [SHIFT][STAT][5:Var][ 1,2, 3, or 4] .

To access the sum of squares sigma x^2 and the sum of data sigma x press[SHIFT][STAT][4:SUM] then [1: for sigma x^2] or [2: for sigma x]. Press [SHIFT][STAT][6:MinMax] to access minX and maxX.

For 2-var statistics
To perform 2 variable statistics you press [MODE][3:STAT] and any of the other regression options (except 1:1-Var). A two column template opens where you enter the X and Y values. When finished entering data, press [SHIFT][STAT][5:Var]. to access the different statistics. As I assumed above, you should be able to recognize what each variable means.

### I'm using the TI-30X IIS calculalator and cannot calculate the standard deviation. Please help! Thank you!

Press 2nd [STAT] then select CLRDATA to clear statistics data. Select 1-VAR or 2-VAR for one-variable or two-variable statistics. Press DATA and enter your data (x for 1-VAR or x and y for 2-VAR). Press 2nd [EXIT-STAT] and select N. Press STAT-VAR to see a menu of statistics variables and their values. Sx (and Sy) will give you the standard deviation, sigma-x (and sigma-y) will give you the population standard deviation.

Hello,
If you want to do statistics with this calculator you press [MODE][3:STAT]. You have then 8 options 1:1-var, 2:A+BX, etc.
For one variable statistics you press 1. Enter the values for the X variable in the template. Once finished you press [SHIFT][1](STAT) then select the value you want ( n, x bar , and the standard deviations (X sigma n) and (X sigma n-1).
Hope it helps.
