The Visual Basic Language 2-23 Exercise 2-1 Computing a Mean and Standard Deviation Develop an application that allows the user to input a sequence of numbers. When done inputting the numbers, the program should compute the mean of that sequence and the standard deviation. If N numbers are input, with the ith number represented by xi , the formula for the mean ( x) is: N x = ( ∑ xi )/ N i =1 and to compute the standard deviation (s), take the square root of this equation: N N i =1 i =1 2 2 s = [N ∑ xi2 - ( ∑ xi ) ]/[N(N - 1)] The Greek sigmas in the above equations simply indicate that you add up all the corresponding elements next to the sigma.

E. KeyAscii). If KeyAscii is an acceptable value, we would do nothing. However, if KeyAscii is not acceptable, we would set KeyAscii equal to zero and exit the procedure. Doing this has the same result of not pressing a key at all. ASCII values for all keys are available via the on-line The Visual Basic Language 2-13 help in Visual Basic. And some keys are also defined by symbolic constants. Where possible, we will use symbolic constants; else, we will use the ASCII values. • As an example, say we have a text box (named txtExample) and we only want to be able to enter upper case letters (ASCII codes 65 through 90, or, correspondingly, symbolic constants vbKeyA through vbKeyZ).

Pressing Enter is the same as clicking the default button): Value 0 256 512 Meaning First button default Second button default Third button default Symbolic Constant vbDefaultButton1 vbDefaultButton2 vbDefaultButton3 • The fourth and final component of Type specifies the modality: Value Meaning 0 Application modal 4096 System modal Symbolic Constant vbApplicationModal vbSystemModal If the box is Application Modal, the user must respond to the box before continuing work in the current application.
