Joestat wants you to use 1-Var Stat command to calculate the descriptive statistics.  First Joestat wants you to calculate the descriptive statistics as if the data represented the population.  Second Joestat wants you to calculate the descriptive statistics as if the data represented a sample.  Round to 2 decimal places in both examples.  If no rounding value is given, round to one decimal point greater the actual data.  Use your TI-83 or TI-84 calculator.

Store the following data set in L1:
{1, 2, 5, 4, 9, 4, 3, 1, 4, 6, 8, 7, 9, 6, 4, 8, 2, 1, 8, 7}
