HP 12c Calculator - Mean, Standard Deviation, and Standard Error for Grouped Data

Introduction
Grouped data are presented in frequency distributions rather than entering each observation individually. Given a set of data points:
X1, X2, ...,Xn
with respective frequencies:
f1, f2, ...,fn
this procedure computes the mean, standard deviation, and standard error of the mean.
Instructions
Follow these steps to compute the mean, standard deviation, and standard error of the mean:
  1. Press f, then CLEAR [REG].
  2. Key in the first value and press ENTER twice.
  3. Key in the respective frequency and press STO, [+], 0, [X], then Sigma +. The display shows the number of data points entered.
  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 for each data point.
  5. To calculate the mean (average) press RCL, 0, STO, 1, RCL, 6, STO, 3, g, then x-mean (the zero key).
  6. Press g, then s to find the standard deviation.
  7. Press RCL, 0, g, the Square Root key, then ÷ to find the standard error of the mean.
Example
A survey of 266 one-bedroom apartment rentals reveals that 54 rent for $190 per month, 32 rent for $195 per month, 88 rent for $200 per month, and 92 rent for $206 per month. What are the average monthly rental, the standard deviation, and the standard error of the mean?
