  1. To enter number in a list, say L1, you press the [STAT] key. In the new screen that displays, select EDIT . You will have access to the lists (all the lists) where you will enter the values.
  2. From the command line, you can also open a curly bracket { and start entering values separated by commas. When finished with the values, close the curly bracket }.
  3. Press the [STO>] (store ) button followed by [2nd[ [1] to store in L1.

On my TI-84 Plus: Once I go to STAT Edit it asks me to name the tables, and when I try to put in L1, it gives me a message saying ERR: ARCHIVED. What do I do??

You already have a list L1 archived in memory.

You have two choices. You can either choose another name or you can unarchive the existing L1. To unarchive a list, press 2ND [MEM] 2 4 then use the arrow keys to move the highlight to the line containing L1 (there should be an asterisk "*" in front of the name). Press ENTER and the asterisk should disappear. Press 2ND [QUIT] to return to the home screen.

Multiple operations in single command on new TI84

Run SetUpEditor to restore the list names L1, to L6
100->dim(L1) to set the dimension of L1 to 100
100->dim(L2) to set the dimension of L2 to 100.
Since you are going to store the random numbers in L1, you should use L2 as the FreqList. All elements of L2 should be 1. When you create it all its elements are 0. One way to fill it with 1's is 10 run the command

L2+1>L2; Add 1 to each number and store the results in L2 (overwrite the 0 values)
Perform a blank run of 1-var Stats to get the chance to set the default lists.
1-var Stats L1, L2 ENTER
Type in your command
randNorm(64.5,2.5,100) STO> L1:1-var Stats L1, L2 ENTER.

Use the Catalog to type in the 1-var Stats commnad so that you can type in the Lists L1 and L2 without opening the 1-var Stats configuration screen.
Do what you have to do with the statistics you generated.
To rerun the two commands again, press [2nd][ MODE] to (QUIT)
or press the sequence [2nd][ENTER] to have the last (ENTRY) echo on the main screen. Press ENTER to run again
randNorm(64.5,2.5,100) STO> L1:1-var Stats L1, L2 ENTER.

Hoe it helps.

I want to enter in numbers for L1 and L2, but when I go the TABLE there is no L1 or L2 column, only X, and there are numbers entered in the X column that I want to delete. How do I clear the X values,...

The table is where the calculator displays values from functions entered in the Y= page. To enter numbers into lists, press STAT and select Edit to get into the list editor.

Hi- on my Ti-84 plus Under STAT EDIT I do not have L1. It goes straight to L2 and so I can't graph anything.....any ideas on how to get my L1 back? thanks!

Even if you do not have L1 you can still graph: You have 6 lists to put data in. You are not required to use L1 but you will have to specify the lists. Be it as it may you can restore L1, which in all likelihood you deleted.
Press the [STAT] key and select [4:SetUpEditor] then press [ENTER]

TI-84 back to factory setting

You actually don't need to restore factory settings for this. I did it accidently and fixed it quickly.

Go to Stat > Edit...

Scroll over until at the bottom of the screen it asks for a name. Press 2nd > 1. L1 should appear, so now, just press enter.

Or just go to Stat > SetUpEditor...
