Unformatted text preview: random numbers that you want. I really wanted only 8 numbers, but I entered 12 because the random number generator might produce some duplicates – after all, it ’ s random – and I ’ m looking for 8 distinct random numbers. 6. Then I press [ ENTER ], and the calculator produces the list. PseudoRandomNumbers.doc / page 2 of 2. 7. Now I can scroll through this list and look at all 12 numbers, but that is sometimes inconvenient. 8. In the alternative, if I know that, say, list L3 is clear, then I can save this list to L3 as follows. First I press the “ store ” key, [ STO ], located just above the [ ON ] key. 9. Then I press the “ L3 ” key, [ 2nd ] [ 3 ]. 10. Then I press [ ENTER ]. 11. When I go to [ STAT ] [1:Edit ], I have a much more “ readable ” listing of the random numbers. So the 8 people selected for the survey are persons numbered 50, 11, 40, 48, 12, 19, 1, 47. I hope that this helps. dj ``````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````...
