Hello,

In my Chemistry class we will be required to

do statistical analysis (mean, std deviation, error, % error)

on our lab experiments.

I'm trying to use a HP48G to do this.

In one of the sample questions the instructor has supplied,

I need to calculate the above stats (mean, std deviation, error, % error) from this data (0.0064, -0.0169, 0.0201, -0.0096).

Using the (right shift)STAT function, I entered the values,

(checked Mean, Std Dev, and Total).

The SD came out alright, but both Mean and Total came out 0 (zero)

What do I need to do to get more decimal places?

Right now in MODES my Number Format is in STD,

But if I use one of the other modes (Fixed, Sci, or Eng)

will I need to set the number of decimal places each time I'm

given a different data set?

Thanks,

Ren
