Can somebody jog my memory? Dave Re: HP11 - Namir - 10-17-2005 First make sure the stat sum registers are clear by pressing the [f][GSB] keys. To enter data: 1) Type the value for y 2) Press [Enter] 3) Type value for x 4) Press the [sigma plus] key To get the linear regression coefficients press [f][sigma +] keys. To remove data: 1) Type the value for y 2) Press [Enter] 3) Type value for x 4) Press the [g][sigma plus] keys Re: HP11 - Dave Bleam - 10-18-2005 Thank you for your help: those steps got my Y intercept point; does this have the capability to calculate the slope also? (using Y=ax+b formula)? Re: HP11 - Namir - 10-19-2005 To see the slope, click the [x<>y] button after you click the [f][sigma +] keys. I suggest you either buy a copy of the HP-11C user's manual from eBay or get the museum CDs/DVD that contains the two manuals (user's manual and applications manual) for the HP-11C. Re: HP11 - Ron Ross - 10-19-2005 You can probably download the Hp12c manual in PDF format from Hp. The Stats and linear regression are either the same or very close in operations. If you can just select chapters, you can be selective. Re: HP11 - Namir - 10-19-2005 The HP-12C has linear regression commands that are quite different from the HP-11C. For one, the 12C does not have keys to calculate the slope & intercept and push them into the stack like the 11C does.

Didja take a look at the back plate of the HP-11C (assuming it is still there, and readable)? It's got a diagram 'n' everything for the "L.R." linear regression function.

Amen to that... -- KS Re: HP-11C *back plate* - Arnaud Amiel - 10-20-2005 The back plate is there: http://www.hpmuseum.org/11cbk.jpg Arnaud Re: HP11 - Dave Bleam - 10-20-2005 Mine still has a pretty intact back plate; its got some good info. I still like the idea of buying the manual. The backplate doesnt give me enough information to run the LR program. Namir's instructions were right on the money. Incidently, I'm 53; the oldest guy in my Physics class. The calculator is older than some of the students; next week I'll bring in my slide rule.
