Question about Texas Instruments TI-30XA Calculator

Trying to solve a question of variance and std. deviation - IE. # of admissions in a college. I see several symbols that could work but.... I can not make them

Re: how to compute varience & std deviation on calc..

Get instruction booklet which gives key strokes and examples on pages 10-11

The following is an example for the dataset {5,7,18}. This will generalize to any dataset that you would like to use.

- Enter your datapoints:

Press "5", "SIGMA+", "7", "SIGMA+", "1", "8", "SIGMA+" - Calculate the standard deviation

Press "2nd", "sigma_(x n-1)" - Square the standard deviation to get the varience:

Press "x^2"

If you followed the correct steps you should see "49" as your answer.

get the TI 84 for dummies book, and check the statistic functions - they are fantastic - got me an A in statistics - once you start using them, you must practice- a function for everything!!

Example: Enter the following x variables, and determine the sample and population standard deviations.

**x** = {1,2,3}

- Press [DATA] and begin to enter the data as indicated into the L1, L2 or L3 lists. To input a data point, type the value and press [ENTER]. Press the down arrow key to move on to the next data point.
- Press [2nd], [STAT], and then choose 1-VAR.
- For the "DATA" option, choose the listname the data is stored in (L1, L2 or L3). For the "FRQ" option, choose "ONE" since this data does not include a frequency list.
- Arrow down to "CALC" and press [ENTER].
*Answers should be as follows:*

3:Sx (Sample Standard Deviation) = 1

4:sx (Population Standard Deviation) = 0.816497 - Press [2nd] [MODE] to exit STAT mode.

This shows you how to enter your data and calculate some statistical
values. Keep in mind that the variance is the square of the standard
deviation.

In the main menu select [STAT] icon to enter Stat mode and display the statistical data lists. Use the statistical data lists to input data and perform statistical calculations. Use the arrows to move the highlighting around the lists.

Example: Enter the following values in List 1

1st line enter 90 [EXE]

2nd line 85 [EXE]

3 79 [EXE]

4 75 [EXE]

5 70 [EXE]

6 68 [EXE]

7 56 [EXE]

When finished you press [F2:Calc], then [F1:1Var] and the statistical results appear on screen.

Title of screen : 1-Variable

x bar =74.7142857

Capital Sigma x= 523

Capita Sigma X squared = 39851

x lower case sigma n = 10.5249945

x lower case sigma n-1= 11.3682934

n = 7

Scroll down with Down arrow to access other data

minX =56

Q1=68

Med =75

Q3=85

Xbar -x lower case sigma n =64.1892911

x bar x lower case sigma n = 85.2392802

maxX=90

Mod=90

All you have to do now, is to look at the theory you learned and interpret what these values mean.

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:

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.

Back to the current subject: How to get the variance (the square of the standard deviation).

When you finish entering your data:

- Press the [AC] button to exit the data editor.
- Press [****][STAT].
- Press [5:Var] to open the statistical result selection screen.
- Press [3: xSigma_n] or [4:xSigma_n -1] depending on what you are interested in (population or sample) standard deviation.
- 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).
- Press [=] to display the current value of the SD chosen.
- By doing this you are in fact storing it it answer memory.
- 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).
- The calculator will display Ans^2.
- Press [=] to display the value of the variance.

Hello,

Set the [Mode] to [3:STAT]. You are offered the choices

1:1-Var

2:A+BX

3:__+cX^2

etc.

I**f you want to do 1-Var statistics**, you press 1:1-Var. A column template opens where you put the X values. If a value is repeated you enter it several times. (there is no frequency column.)

When you enter all data you press [SHIFT][STAT]

You have several choices among them

4: SUM to get SigmaX^2 and Sigma X

5: VAR to get n, the mean X bar, the sample and population standard deviations

6:MINIMAX to get MinX and MaxX

7: Distr the Distributions.

I**f you want to perform 2-Var statistics**

You press [MODE][STAT] and select one of the Regression models

2:A+BX

3:__+cX^2

etc.

The selection of any of the 7 regression models, opens a two-column template where you enter the X and Y values

When finished press [SHIFT][STAT]

The choices offered are

The variance is the SQUARE of the Standard Deviation.

- EXIT until you reach the main ("blank") screen. (If you try to calculate while you're in the data menu, it thinks you're still trying to enter data!)
- Press STAT
- Select CALC
- Select OneVa
- Select LIST, NAMES, xStat(F2), Press ENTER
- The calculator provides Max, Min, Mean, Standard Deviation, Sum, Sigma, etc. You will be primarily interested in the Mean and Standard Deviation (sx).
