    It might be nice to see a solution to this, but I reset the calculator and it seems like everything is working perfectly.

How do i generate random integers with a ti 89 titanium?

Use the rand() function. If you give it a positive integer argument n, it will return a random integer in the range in the interval [1, n]. You'll find rand() in the MATH/PROBABILITY menu.

How can you expand (x-0.3)(x/2+.15) on TI-89 tintanium

In Home screen press [F2: Algebra] then select [3:expand(]. The command echoes on main command line. Complete the argument by typing in (x-0.3)(x/2 plus 0.15) and close the right parenthesis of the expand( )function.

You can also use the identity (special product) (a-b)(a plus b)=a^2-b^2. It is not that clear here, but if you you factored out the 1/2 you will see it.
1/2*(x-0.3)(x plus 2*0.15)=1/2*(x-0.3)(x plus 0.3)= 1/2*(x^2-0.3^2)

I am entering binompdf (3,.25,.75) I then get a domain error. please help

Since this is a discrete distribution, you can only calculate it at integer values of the variable. Hence the last argument in the function (0.75) must be an integer. As you gave a decimal number where an integer is required, the calculator returns a domain error.
Hope it helps.

TI-89 Factoring Not Working

I think what you want to do is not to factor but to expand, which is the option right under factor [F2, 3]. expand((x-5)^2) = x^2-10x+25
