Question about Texas Instruments TI-30 XIIS Calculator

There isn't one. Press the "STAT VAR" button to bring up the statistics menu. "Sx" and "Sy" will give you the sample standard deviations, while "sigma x" and "sigma y" will give you the population standard deviations.

When I say "sigma" I mean the lower case Greek letter sigma, which looks like a lower-case "o" with a tail pointing to the right.

The standard deviation is a measure of how "tight" the samples are distributed around your mean.

In layman's terms, a small standard deviation indicates that most of your measurements are in the vicinity of the means; a large standard deviation corresponds to readings that are all over the place.

You could also say that the smaller the SD, the more your mean is representative of the data set.

For a better explanation, just look up Standard deviation on Wikipedia!

Hi there,

My name is adieh. Hav a great day.

Here are the tips on how to calculate standard deviation using a graphic calculator:

1. Turn on your graphing calculator, go to the stats/editor screen and enter your data set into list1. Once this is done, return to your home page by hitting the home button.

2. Push the catalog button and scroll through the applications until you find "stdDev(". Place the arrow next to it and press enter.

3.Type the word "list1" into the open parenthesis. After you have put that in, close the parenthesis so you calculator doesn't show an error message.

4. Press the enter button. The calculator has done the calculations and you now have the standard deviation of your data set.

Note:

Using 1-var stats in the stats/editor screen will also give you the standard deviation. Using that function will also give you other information associated with your data set.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using fixya.

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

Apr 02, 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+

I want to calculate a standard deviation on BA II plus

Apr 23, 2008 | Texas Instruments BA-II Plus Calculator

Standard deviation is the average root mean squared deviation from the average of the numbers.

Familiarize yourself with the wikipedia page on standard deviation: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Standard_deviation

In this case, your question is easy. The standard deviation is 0, so this means the boys ages are all the same.

So they're all 24/3 = 8 years old.

Proof:

8 + 8 + 8 = 24 <-- satisfies the constraint that the boys ages must total to 24.

Get the standard deviation of these numbers;

8+8+8 / 3 = 8 <-- the average value is 8

The deviation of each boy's age from the average is:

boy 1

--------

8 years old, which deviates from 8 by 0

boy 2

--------

8 years old, which deviates from 8 by 0

boy 3

--------

8 years old, which deviates from 8 by 0

So the deviations are 0, 0 and 0.

To get the standard deviation, you sum the squares of the deviations of each boy, get the average, and square root. So:

0² + 0² + 0² = 0

Average is 0 / 3 = 0

Square root of 0 = 0

So the standard deviation is 0. Which shouldn't be much of a surprise to you. We just had to actually DO the work to show that it was in fact 0.

This calc will do standard deviations. In the manual it is on page 2 and also on page 40.
