The TI-82 has six lists available to it. Each list can hold up to 99 elements. They are accessed by
`2nd 1` through `2nd 6`.

The easiest way to create a list is to use the statistics functions:

- Clear the old lists using
`ClrList`and the list to clear. More than one list may be cleared at a time by separating them with commas. - Create the new list by using the
`Edit`command. Arrow to the list you need, type in each number followed by enter. `Quit`the list to return to the main screen.

Operations with lists can be extremely useful, although they don't always follow mathematical standards.

- The sum, difference, product, or quotient of two lists is the sum, difference, product, or quotient of the individual elements in each list. The lists must have the same dimensions.
- A function (square, square root, cosine, etc) evaluated at a list is a list with the function evaluated at each element in the list.
- A sum, difference, product, or quotient of a list with a scalar is the sum, difference, product, or quotient of each element in the list with the scalar.

The lists can be sorted in ascending (`SortA`)or descending (`SortD`) order. Be aware, however,
that sorting a list replaces the existing list, rather than creating a new list.
