# Calculate Variance on Casio FX-83ES Calculator

Hello,
I am calculating the Standard Deviation on this calculator fine as below:
Set the [Mode] to [3:STAT]. You are offered the choices
1:1-Var
2:A+BX
3:__+cX^2
etc.
If 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.

However I want to find the variance. How can I easily do this?
Having calculated the Standard Deviation. I cannot see a way of taking the square of the Standard Deviation other than writing it down and typing it back in.
I have tried the square function and saving the SD to memory with no success. I wonder if I am just missing the obvious here.

This question could be phrased as having got an answer through the Stat mode described above how can I then perform another action on that answer?

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.

Sorry in point number 2, Press [SHIFT][STAT]
Puzzling! I must have omitted the f in shift and the Fixya parser struck me with the Wrath of God.
