One student has found the international edition online for \$50! 2) Calculator capable of calculating means ( X ) and standard deviations (S and σ, some calculators show these as σ n-1 and σ n respectively). If your calculator also estimates the intercept (a) and slope (b) in y = a + bX and the correlation coefficient (r) (in simple linear regression) it is much better. DO NOT INVEST TOO MUCH IN ANY FANCY CALCULATOR. Statistical software:
