How to edit default algorithm from programs

HP Recommended
HP Prime

Hello everyone, 

I would like to copy the Statistics 1Var and edit the result variables. I need to use statics with a different algorithm than the one that comes by default and it seems I am not able to  reprogram the result variables.


Example for Ordered Data Set: 6, 7, 15, 36, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 47, 49

the default algorithm gives as result (stats):





I need to reprogram so the result will be:





I would appreciate a little help 🙂

There are different estimators for these quantiles but the HP Prime results match those of professional statistical software such as SAS and JMP, for example.

It is not possible to change these variables yourself.

They can only be read but not written to because it are results.


You can easily check this by first opening the Statistics 1Var app with your data set.

Next leave the app and go to Home view.

Press Vars - App - Statistics 1Var - Results - MedVal (which is Med).

press Enter and you get the value of Med in Home view.


Try to store another value into Medval and you receive the message: Error: Bad argument type.
