Worked Out Examples
In the following examples, we list the exact key sequence used to find the answer. We will list the keys by the main symbol on the key. In parentheses, we will list a helpful mnemonic, e.g. we will list e^{x} as (e^{x}).
A: What is the mean and standard deviation of the following list of numbers?
15 16 20 21
1: Clear Memory | (scl) |
2: Enter the data: | |
3: Compute the mean | (x) |
4: Compute the standard deviation (population): | (x s_{n}) |
5: Compute the standard deviation (sample): | (x s_{n-1}) |
You should get a mean of 18, population standard deviation of
2.549509757, and a sample standard deviation
of 2.943920289.
B: Find the linear regression line for the following table of numbers. Also find the correlation.
x | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 |
y | 2 | 4 | 5 | 7 |
1: Clear Memory | (scl) |
2: Enter Data | (DT) |
3: Compute the slope of the regression line | (B) |
4: Compute the y-intercept of the regression line | (A) |
5: Compute the correlation | (r) |
You should get a slope of 1.6, a y-intercept of 0.5, and a
correlation of 0.992277876.
The regression line would be: y = 1.6x+0.5.
1: Compute _{10}C_{6} | (_{n}C_{r} ) |
2: Compute _{9}P_{5} | (_{n}P_{r} ) |
You should get _{10}C_{6 }= 210 and _{9}P_{5}=
15120.
