Solution 32871: Attaching a Formula to a List Name in Stat List Editor Using the TI-83 Plus, TI-84 Plus Family, and TI-Nspire™ in TI-84 Plus mode.

How can I attach a formula to a list name in Stat List Editor using the TI-83 Plus family, TI-84 Plus family, or TI-Nspire in TI-84 Plus mode?

A formula can be attached to a list name in the stat list editor and then display and edit the calculated list elements. When executed the attached formula must resolve to a list.

Example: To attach a formula to a list name that is stored in the stat list editor, follow the steps below using the example of L1={1,2,3} and L2={2,3,4}.

1) Press [STAT] [1].

2) Press [1] [ENTER] [2] [ENTER] [3] [ENTER].

3) Press [►] [2] [ENTER] [3] [ENTER] [4] [ENTER].

4) Press [►] [▲] [ENTER].
5) Press [ALPHA] [].
6) Press [2ND] [L1] [+] [2ND] [L2].
7) Press [ALPHA] [“] [ENTER].

Please Note: If a formula in quotation marks is displayed on the entry line, then a formula is already attached to the list name. To edit the formula, press [ENTER], and then edit the formula.


Please Note: If quotation marks are not used the handheld calculates and displays the same initial list of answers, but does not attach the formula for future calculations.

Please see the TI-83 Plus Family and TI-84 Plus Family guidebooks for additional information.

TI-Nspire handheld in TI-84 Plus mode users may refer to the TI-84 Plus family guidebook.
