You don't. If you need one of the functions or commands that have a "%" in the name, you'll have to access it from the catalog or a menu. You can't put the percent symbol into a prompt or text string.

The Transfrm application has been executed previously. It remains in RAM and takes over the graphing duties of the native OS. You must Uninstall Transfrm (that does not mean delete it, just unload it from memory).
To do so,

  1. press the [APPS] button.
  2. Use arrow Up or Down (Up is faster) to reach Transfm.
  3. Select it and press [ENTER].
  4. In the new screen, select the number to the left of the Uninstall option.
  5. Go to draw your graphs. You will be able to draw up to 10 graphs.

I want to graph an inequality but when i got to apps all it shows up is only finance

You don't need an app. Just press the Y= button and enter the inequality as if you're entering another function to be graphed. Then press left-arrow repeatedly to move to the diagonal line at the left end of the display. Press ENTER repeatedly to cycle through the different graph styles. If the inequality is of the form "y less than" or "y less than or equal to", select the shaded triangle below the line. If the inequality is of the form "y greater than" or "y greater than or equal to", select the shaded triangle above the line.

How would you enter the following equation to graph on a TI-84 Plus Silver Edition calculator? 2 <= t <= 9

To enter the inequation you split it into two inequalities
Graph is as follows
Use [2nd][CATALOG] to access the relaional operators less than or equal, greater than or equal, and the operator AND.
To access the inequality signs scroll upwards from abs( to reach the bottom of the catalog.
Note: You can use t as variable only in parametric graphs. Use x.
Hope it helps.

Arrow to the left of the Y= until you have highlighted the triangle, and press enter until you see what you are looking for. The triangle you are referring to is probably to graph an inequality and I think you are looking for a regular line.

Entering inequalities into TI-84 to graph

I think you should get a Texas Instruments calculator and push the 'y=' button then put the equation like '2x+4' in the y1 area. You can put the X by using the variable botton. I hope my english makes sense I am not a native speaker.
