Question about Texas Instruments BA-II Plus Calculator

I want to calculate a standard deviation on BA II plus

Posted on Oct 13, 2009

When I enter some series of data and check the descriptive statistics, every time I come to the standard deviation the calculator shows me Error 1 message.

This will show you how to do statistics (calculate average, standard deviation, regressions etc.) as to the mode and median refer to the definitions.

TO COMPUTE STANDARD DEVIATION AND 2-VAR STATISTICS.

I assume you know the theory. I will show you the key strokes

For 1-Var statistics

Press [MODE][3:STAT] [1:1-VAR]. You are ready to enter values in the X column.

Enter a number and press [=]. Cursor jumps to second number to enter.

Keep entering numbers and pressing [=] till all numbers are in. Press the [=] key after the last one.

**Press
[AC] key to clear the screen.**

Press [SHIFT] [STAT] (above digit 1.) then [5:Var]. Screen displays the statistical variables 1:n ;2: x bar; 3: x sigma n; 4:x sigma n-1.

Press the number corresponding to the statistical value you want, ex 1:n . The variable appears on screen. Press [=] and it will be displayed.

To display another variable press [SHIFT][STAT][5:Var][ 1,2, 3, or 4] .

To access the sum of squares sigma x^2 and the sum of data sigma x press[SHIFT][STAT][4:SUM] then [1: for sigma x^2] or [2: for sigma x]. Press [SHIFT][STAT][6:MinMax] to access minX and maxX.

For 2-var statistics

To perform 2 variable statistics you press [MODE][3:STAT] and any of the other regression options (except 1:1-Var). A two column template opens where you enter the X and Y values. When finished entering data, press [SHIFT][STAT][5:Var]. to access the different statistics. As I assumed above, you should be able to recognize what each variable means.

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...)

Press 2nd [STAT] then select CLRDATA to clear statistics data. Select 1-VAR or 2-VAR for one-variable or two-variable statistics. Press DATA and enter your data (x for 1-VAR or x and y for 2-VAR). Press 2nd [EXIT-STAT] and select N. Press STAT-VAR to see a menu of statistics variables and their values. Sx (and Sy) will give you the standard deviation, sigma-x (and sigma-y) will give you the population standard deviation.

first off you want you calculator in SD (standard deviation) mode to do this hit mode twice and then 1.

next it is good practice to start off by clearing the memory to do this hit shift, CLR,1 and then = this will clear statistical memory

to enter values into your data set , you enter the value, then press the DT (M+) button. (note: pressing DT repeatedly will impute the same value multiple times)

once you have finished pluging in your numbers your calculator can give you statistical information about the data set.

hitting shift then 1(S-SUM) gives you three options: 1 the sum of the squares of each value 2 the sum of each value 3 the number of terms in the data set hitting shift then 2 (S-VAR) gives you three more options 1 x bar (the mean) 2 x sigma n (the population standard deviation) 3 x sigma n-1 (the sample standard deviation)

you can use these tools to solve alot of statistical problems i hope this helped

Press 2nd [CSR] (shift-7) to clear the statistical registers. Use the Sigma+ key (just above STO) to enter data points. Use 2nd [Sigma-] to remove erroneous data points. Use 2nd [sigma x n] (shift-divide) to compute the population standard deviation, or 2nd [sigma x n-1] (just to the left of the previous key) to compute the sample standard deviation.

Jun 07, 2010 | Texas Instruments TI-30XA Calculator

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.

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+

Hello,

You must first enter the data you are doing statistics on.

After you finish entering the data, do as the figure below describes.

Hope it helps.

Texas Instruments TI-86 Statistics How-To Information
The following instructions should allow you to calculate the mean and standard deviation using a TI-86 calculator.

- Press STAT
- Select EDIT
- Enter data into a list: [2.32 ENTER 2.43 ENTER 2.39 ENTER, etc.] Continue until all data have been entered. (use arrows keys to go to the y value, if any)
- 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).

To use one-variable statistics the simple way, go into the Data Editor and enter your data into a column. Press F5 to calculate. Select 1-var stats. I believe you've got this much of it. Then, in the first box, enter the name from the header of the column you entered the data into. For "Use Freq and Categories?" select NO.

When you press ENTER, you should see a screen with the one-variable statistics.

To get the standard deviation the easier way, simply put the data into a llist and then use the stdDev function (or the stdDevPop function for the population standard deviation) function on it. For example:

stdDev({1,2,3}) gives 1.
