Question about Texas Instruments TI-89 Calculator

When I try to enter a matrix, something like this: [8,9;7,1], and click enter, where the matrix should look like a correct matrix, it's just the working out steps and there's another set of square brackets. This also happens when I try to do something like square root of square root of 61 squared + 15 squared. I click enter and the working step is just showed - you can see this symbol (^) and heaps of brackets instead of a proper equation.

I've tried resetting and comparing my modes to numerous teachers and students but no one can figure it out.

Please help!

Try hitting the diamond button and then hitting answer after it shows up, it should give you a different outcome than the original. hope that helped.

Hi,

a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.

goodluck!

There should not be any problem. There is however something you did not talk about. After you finish entering the coefficient of the second matrix (mat B) you should press the AC key. This way you exit the matrix editing utility.

Once the matrices are entered and saved,

Press [SHIFT][4] (Matrix)

Press 3: MatA

The label MatA appears on the screen.

Pres [+]

Press [SHIFT][4] (Matrix)

Press 4: MatB

At this point your screen shows MatA+MatB

Press [=] to get the result

[** [-36 , -92]**, **[-69,-17]**,**[-63, -71]**]

Once the matrices are entered and saved,

Press [SHIFT][4] (Matrix)

Press 3: MatA

The label MatA appears on the screen.

Press [SHIFT][4] (Matrix)

If you have defined two similar matrices (same number of row and same number of columns) you can ADD them or subtract them. The operation keys are Plus and Minus as for any number.

To multiply you use the multiplication sign. The matrices must be compatible (mxn) multiplied by (nxk).

Here is an account of what you can do with matrices on this scientific calculator. Certain precautions must be taken as concerns the dimensions of the matrices. Refer to your text book on matrix algebra.

On this calculator the largest matrices you can define have dimensions 3X3.

I will not try to guess what you mean by "solve a matrix", but I believe that what follows will help you.

Here is copy of the answer I posted to a question on how to use Matrices. Read it carefully. It helped a few people, and there is no reason why it should not help you too. If after a bona fide effort to understand it you still have a problem, post a comment here. What I am saying, is do not just shoot the answer, try it first.

Dimensions of matrices involved in operations must match (see you textbook for the rules)

Read the appendix to your user manual, there are several exemples.

nope - that doesn't work. it'll just put it in approximate mode.

thanks anyway
