Sample variance?



#3

On page 419 of the latest Prime user guide, it shows how to use the variance() function. This is the population variance. Is there a way to calculate the sample variance instead?

Also, I can't find a built-in function for percentile. I could probably write something easily enough, but I'm wondering if I'm missing it somewhere...


Thanks,

Bruce

From p194 of the manual:

Tapping [Stats] displays the following results for each

...

sX Sample standard deviation

sigmaX Population standard deviation


Then obtain the sample variance as the square of sX
