How do you find the median on the TI-30XA?

Re: median for statistics

The TI-30XA doesn't give the median of a sequence of entered values, just the mean, std dev, and other one variable stats

Posted on Dec 31, 2008

The mean of a distribution is represented as an x with a bar above it. (xbar). When you scroll along the statistics you will see the Median, Xmax, Xmin, Q1, Q3, n. All clearly identified. Maybe you should learn mor about the theory.

The TI-30Xa does not have a statistics mode. That statistics operations are available at all times, just like addition and subtraction. Just enter the data with Sigma-plus and then calculate the desired statistics---mean, standard deviation, and so forth.

Full details are in the "One-Variable Statistics" section of the guidebook (page 9 in my copy). If you need the guidebook, you can download one from

The 30XA doesn't have a statistical mode; all of the statistical functions are available at all times.

2nd [CSR] clears the statistical registers, Sigma+ adds a data point, Sigma- deletes a data point, 2nd [x-bar] gives the mean, 2nd [sigma-x-n] and 2nd [sigma-x-n-minus-one] give the population and sample standard deviation.

For full details, refer to the statistics section in the manual. If you don't have a manual, you can download a guidebook from

No. There are some keys on the TI-30XA that may make you think so, but they are statistical operations. For example, you can enter values using the Sigma+ key and the TI-30XA can give you the sum of the values entered, sum of the squares, mean value, standard deviation and so on.

You cannot do calculations like "Give me the sum of all integers from 1 to 100" with the TI-30XA, you'd need a far more sophisticated calculator.

The truth of the matter is that there is no statistical mode per se. You just start entering data in a specific sequence.

If there is data in the statistics register (remnant of and old calculation) you must start by clearing old values :[2nd][CSR].

Here is a screen capture with an example that uses frequencies.

"x bar" returns the mean of a series of numbers entered in "statistical mode".

e.g.enter 3, then press the "sigma plus" key (just above the "STO" key. Display will show "n = 1" and "STAT" will display to remind you that you are in statistical mode.

Enter 3 the "sigma plus" and you will see "n = 2" to tell you that you have entered two numbers. Keep doing this for a few more, then press "2nd x bar" and you will see the mean of all the numbers you entered, which is 3 if you entered all 3's.

To exit "STAT" mode, you have to press "2nd" then "CSR" (just above the 7 key), since the regular "clear" key only clears the pending entry.

Lots of simple statistical stuff you can do on the TI-30XA, read the guide book, available online at TI if you don't have one

You can't, the TI-30XA is a one variable statistical calculator, so you can't do two variable statistics with it.

You need to step up to the TI-35X or the TI-30X IIS

I already answered a Q like this - you can't do 2 variable statistics on the TI-30XA, it only does one variable statistic.

To do 2 variable stat like linear regression, you need the TI-36X or TI-30X IIS, or comparable HP, casio etc
