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

About 5.23. If this is homework, be sure to show your work.

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.

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

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):

Example: calculate the average and standard deviation of the set { 3, 4, 5, 5, 5, 5, 6 }.

- [2nd] [CSR] - erase statistics data
- [] - add a number to the sample set
- [2nd] [] - remove a number from the sample set
- [2nd] [FRQ] - multiple entry of the same sample value
- [2nd] [n] - sample set size
- [2nd] [] - sum of all sample elements
- [2nd] [] - sum of the squares of all sample elements
- [2nd] [] - average of the sample set
- [2nd] [] - standard deviation (sample set is a complete set)
- [2nd] [] - standard deviation (sample set is a subset of a larger set)

Example: calculate the average and standard deviation of the set { 3, 4, 5, 5, 5, 5, 6 }.

- [2nd] [CSR] - erase stat memory
- 3 [] 4 [] 5 [2nd] [FRQ] 4 [] 6 [] - enter the data, note the use of [2nd] [FRQ] to enter the four occurrences of "5". Entering 5 [] four times would have done the same.
- [2nd] [] - display the average of the set, (4.714...)
- [2nd] [] - display the standard deviation of the set (0.8806...)

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.

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

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.
