The only known equation for the cumulative binomial distribution is the sum of the individual binomial probabilities. Some more sophisticated (and more expensive) calculators have that equation built in, but the 30xii does not.

If n>30 and n*p>5 and n*(1-p)>5 then you can approximate the cumulative binomial with the normal probability function, but again the 30xii does not have that built in.

SOURCE: Inputing scientific notation into my calculator


1. To convert a number to scientific equation, use [2nd][Sci]
Exemples 12345 [=] screen shows 12345 Then [2nd][Sci] coverts it to 1.2345 ^04 to the power 4.
2. To enter directly a number in scientific notation (e.g. -1.2345 X10^(-65) a very small number) you use the [EE] key 1.2345[+ /-][EE][+/-]65 shows as -1.2345 -65
1.6X10^(-19) 1.6[EE][+/-]19 shows as 1.6 -19

Hope it helps

SOURCE: how to clear the memory key on Texas instrument

Your calculator has 3 memories (M1, M2,M3)
To store the number 170 in M1 use 170[STO]1
To recall a number from M1 use [RCL]1
To add a number to the content of M1 [2nd][SUM]1 (adds displayed value to contents of M1).
[2nd][EXC] 2 exchanges the value already displayed with the contents of M2:

To erase (clear) a memory register, just store 0 in it.

Hope it helps.

Binomial distribution

The number of combinations of n objects taken r at a time has a reserved symbol nCr. On calculators it has a special key (or shifted key) marked nCr.
By definition nCr=(n!)/((r!)*(n-r)!)=nC(n-r)
In what follows, I am using parentheses to enclose what is in the denominators). So
10!/(8!2!)=10C2 or 10C8 =45 (they have the same value)

I encountered this same problem with the TI-84. Turns out you have to put your P (Percentage) as out of one hundred. For example. With my problem I had;

Trails: 13
P: 53/100
X Value: L1 (List 1)

And then it posted my probabilities to the L2 list. For some reason if you just put 53, or whatever your percentage of success in, it won't calculate.

I was told that, to do binomial distributions on a ti-86, I would need to hit 2nd Math, then More, and I should see something that says STAT and go from there to get to DIST and Binomi. I see nothing...


Sorry, but you information is wrong, to find the binomial distribution use the PROB menu not the STAT menu. Its name is randBi
[2nd][MATH][F2:PROB] scroll right.
Hope it helps.
