Question about Texas Instruments TI-83 Plus Calculator

1 Answer

Calculating a 93% confidence interval

If the standard deviation for lifetimes of vacuum cleaners is estimated to be 400 hours, how large a sample must be taken in order to be 93% confident that the marge of error will not exceed 50 hours?

I know that n+(za/2)2 standard devation squared/the margin of error squared. What I don't know is how do I get the 93% confidence which is the z a/2 squared

Where is s on the ti-30xa calculator


If you mean the standard deviation, there are two shifted keys on the third row marked with a lower-case Greek sigma. sigma_xn is the population standard deviation and sigma_xn-1 is the sample standard deviation.

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

How do I put my calculator in statistics mode?


The TI-30XA does not have to be switched to a statistics mode, the operations are available all the time. The choice of operations are somewhat limited; the calculator offers statistics functions for one dimensional data sets only (no linear interpolation of (x,y) value pairs, for example):
  • [2nd] [CSR] - erase statistics data
  • [mib8888_17.gif] - add a number to the sample set
  • [2nd] [mib8888_18.gif] - remove a number from the sample set
  • [2nd] [FRQ] - multiple entry of the same sample value
  • [2nd] [n] - sample set size
  • [2nd] [mib8888_19.gif] - sum of all sample elements
  • [2nd] [mib8888_20.gif] - sum of the squares of all sample elements
  • [2nd] [mib8888_21.gif] - average of the sample set
  • [2nd] [mib8888_22.gif] - standard deviation (sample set is a complete set)
  • [2nd] [mib8888_23.gif] - standard deviation (sample set is a subset of a larger set)
The calculator displays "STAT" if the current sample set is non-empty.

Example: calculate the average and standard deviation of the set { 3, 4, 5, 5, 5, 5, 6 }.
  1. [2nd] [CSR] - erase stat memory
  2. 3 [mib8888_17.gif] 4 [mib8888_17.gif] 5 [2nd] [FRQ] 4 [mib8888_17.gif] 6 [mib8888_17.gif] - enter the data, note the use of [2nd] [FRQ] to enter the four occurrences of "5". Entering 5 [mib8888_17.gif] four times would have done the same.
  3. [2nd] [mib8888_21.gif] - display the average of the set, (4.714...)
  4. [2nd] [mib8888_22.gif] - display the standard deviation of the set (0.8806...)

How to i do std deviation and sample mean


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.

Does this calculator comes with a standard deviation or population standard deviation button


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

Standard Deviation


Press 2ND [CSR] to clear the stat data.

For each data point, enter the number followed by SIGMA+

If you have grouped data, enter the number followed by 2ND [FRQ] followed by the frequency then SIGMA+

Press 2ND [sigma x n] for the population standard deviation or 2ND [sigma x n-1] for the sample standard deviation.
