sigma x squared y on wp34s
Can anyone tell me what statistical analysis uses sigma x squared y?

Many thanks!

You find it in the WP 34S Owner's Manual, App. I, Chapter "More Statistical Formulas", in the expression for the sample standard deviation for weighted data (where the weight yi of each data point xi is entered via Σ+ ).

Thank you so much, Walter, for your quick response. I was thinking in terms of bivariate data, not weights.

I want you to know what a pleasure it is to use the 42s. It brings back the excitement of the 41CV from way back in the day. You must be very proud!

Best,
Hank

Thank you for your very kind words. I must admit I think all three of us - Pauli, Marcus, and me - are sometimes a little bit proud. And also Sanjeev and Bob can be proud of the WP 31S.

And since pride is like icecream - once you have tasted a little bit you want more - we'd like to see something like a WP 35S / DM 35L (see here) or even a WP 43S (see here*) materializing. Maybe ...
