The position of the graphically
represented keys can be found by moving your mouse on top of the graphic.
The ON/C Key does not count as a row. Row 1 starts with the x! key.

Press . (You should see the word ON to the right of the key.) | |||||||||
Clearing the memory | |||||||||
Press (CSR - Clear Statistical Register is written above the key.) Pressing and then has the same effect. |
Entering data | |||
one variable | |||
Type in first number. Press (you should see DT below the key, in blue). Type in second number. Press . Continue until all the data has been entered. | |||
two variables | |||
The TI-30 STAT cannot do two variable statistics. |

standard deviation for populations (s or s_{n}) | ||||
Press (s_{n}). | ||||
standard deviation for samples (s or s_{n-1}) | ||||
Press (s_{n-1} ). |

Worked Out Examples
In the following examples, we list the exact key sequence used to find the answer. We list the keys by the main symbol on the key. In parentheses we include a helpful mnemonic, e.g. (e^{x}).
A: What is the mean and standard deviation of the following list of numbers?
15 16 20 21
1: Clear Memory | (CSR) |
2: Enter the data: | |
3: Compute the mean | (x) |
4: Compute the standard deviation (population): | (s_{n}) |
5: Compute the standard deviation (sample): | (s_{n-1} ) |
You should get a mean of 18, population standard deviation of
2.549509757, and a sample standard deviation
of 2.943920289.
1: Compute _{10}C_{6} | |
2: Compute _{9}P_{5} |
You should get _{10}C_{6 }= 210 and _{9}P_{5}=
15120.
