Hello folks- I am trying to use my TI-89 Titanium to factor and do expanding work. Entering the correct information, I get a return of

ERROR: Argument Error

Why is the calculator not doing its job? I tried the F6 menu thing from another article on the internet and it did not help. Any help with this would be appreciated.

I reset the calculator and it did its job- though a solution would be handy.

You have to download the next program for multivariable function limit from:

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.

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)

Having gone over a month with no response, I assume this is no longer a problem.

Hello,

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.

Using solve and factor requires correct mode and proper equation set up. Ref to manual might help.

An argument must be in a specified domain. For example, ans(100) is not valid because the argument for ans() must be in the range 1–99.

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

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

I have the same problem

Trying to do long division using the propFrac function and keep getting an argument error.
