When ever I try doing limits or differentiate the error code comes you "too few arguments". Any suggestions on what i am doing wrong???

The problem is you haven't given it anything to solve...
always add a comma and the variable after any solve, differentiate or intergrate problem...
eg:
solve(x^2=4) is wrong!
solve(x^2=4, x)

Hope this helps

But I do enter the comma, variable and final parenthesis and I still get the "too few arguments" error. I'm about ready to flush the calculator down the toilet!

Correct a #N/A error Show All Hide All This error occurs when a value is not available to a function or formula.
1. Optionally, click the cell that displays the error, click the button that appears , and then click Show Calculation Steps if it appears.
2. Review the following possible causes and solutions. Missing data, and #N/A or NA() has been entered in its place
Replace #N/A with new data.
Note You can enter #N/A in those cells where data is not yet available. Formulas that refer to those cells will then return #N/A instead of attempting to calculate a value.
Giving an inappropriate value for the lookup_value argument in the HLOOKUP, LOOKUP, MATCH, or VLOOKUP worksheet function
Make sure that the lookup_value argument (argument: The values that a function uses to perform operations or calculations. The type of argument a function uses is specific to the function. Common arguments that are used within functions include numbers, text, cell references, and names.) is the correct type of value — for example, a value or a cell reference, but not a range reference. Using the VLOOKUP, HLOOKUP, or MATCH worksheet function to locate a value in an unsorted table
By default, functions that look up information in tables must be sorted in ascending order. However, the VLOOKUP and HLOOKUP worksheet functions contain a range_lookup argument (argument: The values that a function uses to perform operations or calculations. The type of argument a function uses is specific to the function. Common arguments that are used within functions include numbers, text, cell references, and names.) that instructs the function to find an exact match even if the table is not sorted. To find an exact match, set the range_lookup argument to FALSE. The MATCH worksheet function contains a match_type argument that specifies the order the list must be sorted in to find a match. If the function cannot find a match, try changing the match_type argument. To find an exact match, set the match_type argument to 0.
Using an argument in an array formula that is not the same number of rows or columns as the range that contains the array formula
If the array formula (array formula: A formula that performs multiple calculations on one or more sets of values, and then returns either a single result or multiple results. Array formulas are enclosed between braces { } and are entered by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER.) has been entered into multiple cells, make sure that the ranges referenced by the formula have the same number of rows and columns, or enter the array formula into fewer cells. For example, if the array formula has been entered into a range 15 rows high (C1:C15) and the formula refers to a range 10 rows high (A1:A10), the range C11:C15 will display #N/A. To correct this error, enter the formula into a smaller range (for example, C1:C10), or change the range to which the formula refers to the same number of rows (for example, A1:A15).
Omitting one or more required arguments from a built-in or custom worksheet function
Enter all arguments (argument: The values that a function uses to perform operations or calculations. The type of argument a function uses is specific to the function. Common arguments that are used within functions include numbers, text, cell references, and names.) in the function.
Using a custom worksheet function that is not available
Make sure that the workbook that contains the worksheet function is open and the function is working properly.
Running a macro that enters a function that returns #N/A
Make sure that the arguments (argument: The values that a function uses to perform operations or calculations. The type of argument a function uses is specific to the function. Common arguments that are used within functions include numbers, text, cell references, and names.) in the function are correct and in the correct position.

### WHAT IS ARGUMENT ERROE.?

Take for example a function y=f(x). What is inside the function is called its argument (what it is acting on). If you get that error it may mean that the argument type is wrong or that it is out of range. Here are two simple examples.
1. A function requires a real number and you make it act on a complex number (wrong argument type).
2. You know that the log () function must have a positive argument and you try to calculate say log(-2.5).
3. Arc sine and arc cosine must have an argument in the closed interval [-1,1] but you call them with a value outside that interval.
4. A function is defined with a list of arguments yet it is called with more items in the list or less items in the list.
Try displaying the values of the arguments before the function is called. This way you will see if you are passing it correct arguments.

### Hi I am experiencing problem with my Casio 991 MS

The range of the cosine and sine functions is limited to the interval [-1, 1]. As a result the calculator will send an error message if the functions are called with arguments outside the interval [-1, 1]. Aside from this, I do not see any reason why the functions would give an error.

### TI-89 dimension mistmatch error

Dimension mismatch error occurs when arguments are not with same dimensions. Two or more arguments must be of the same dimension. For example, [1,2]+[1,2,3] is a dimension mismatch because the matrices contain a different number of elements. By the way, it it very easy to resolving your problem with differentiation. See captured image

As a result of differentiation you had to obtained:

(3b+2c)cos2x+(3c-2b)(sin2x)e^(3x)+2ae^(2x)

### How do I put a limit in my TI-89 with it saying 'to few arguments'?

Make sure you give it the appropriate number of arguments. The limit() function takes three or four arguments.
1. The expression. For example, sin(x)/x
2. The variable. For example, x
3. The point at which the limit is to be taken. For example, 0
4. (optional) The direction from which the limit is to be approached, negative for from the left, positive for from the right, 0 for both. Defaults to zero if not given.

### We can not get the negative sine functions etc. Keep getting error message.

Inverse sine is defined only for arguments -1 <= x <= +1.
Did you try to calculate it for arguments outside this rang?
