Take time out, if you do one more thing...

Amberpower: other than the STAT/DATA (for stan dev of sample and population), CF, and TVM, what else is the calculator good for (instead of calculating manually)?!?!?

Nom - effective yld. nCr and nPr, ust read it

i wouldn’t waste your time at this point… better yet, learn how to master the practice problems via your calculator… you’d be surprised… you’ll likely use the calculator less than you would think…

Depreciation - S/L, SOYD, DB

can someone walk me through the steps of calculating mean, variance, etc using STAT function? Thank you.

Difficult without an example but fisrt you punch the data in key no:7 (Data) and when you are done you go to number 8 (Stats). The best way is to find a manual. You will notice that in the “stat” buttum you will be getting two values one is for whe you are calculating for a population and the other one is for when you are solving for a sample since with a sample you go (n-1)

thank you audrey, will figure it out…it is a bit confusing!

If u have the HP-12C it’s different.

On the TI, click 2nd then DATA (over the 7). Then click 2nd and CE/C (CLR WORK). Now, X01 shows up, enter your first data point (return for yr. 1 for example). Hit enter and then the down arrow twice. Now, X02 shows up, enter your second data point (return for yr. 2). Do that until you have completed all the years. Now, hit 2nd then STAT (over the 8). Then use the down arrow to scroll through the results…

Wow…this is way faster than doing things by hand…just have to be careful about remembering that Sx is the sample deviation and Sigmax is the population.

amber, I know you have been saying that we should review the calc. manual (yeah! i’ve been following the forum in the shadows, for a couple of weeks now)… and i have been postponing doing that, but i just forced myself to go over it this morning and i just wanted to say THANK YOU!!! even though i know most of the basic functions, there is just so much that can be done faster if you know exactly what to do! a very long winded way of saying thank you! (the morning coffee rush!)
