Question about Texas Instruments TI-84 Plus Silver Edition Graphic Calculator

2 Answers

Why do some TI83 program work on a TI84 plus and other don't?

I have a TI 84 plus and have entered some programs designed for a TI 83. Some work while others don't. I get an ERR: Argument message that I can't clear up. I've been trying different functions to get the same result, with no luck These are statistics programs for Z scores and Sampling probabilities.I would like to find compatible programs for the TI 84 plus but have had no luck. Is there a simple syntax rule concerning parenthesis and commas anyone can help me with?

Hello,
The only differences between th 83 plus and the 84 plus SE are . The speed of the processor and the amount of RAM. Programs for the TI83Plus are compatible with the TI84, while those for the TI84 may not be able to run because of the different amount of memory.
You say you entered the programs: does that mean you typed them? In that case you might have made an error. Try transferring the programs using the calc-to-calc cable or a calc-to-computer cable. Yoy need TIconnect to be installed on your computer.
Hope it helps.

Ti 83 and ti84 really have no difference and operate the same. There was something different or you had varibles used by multiple programs that conflicted w/ the ti84 and it would have done the same on the ti83. If you like to rework it and need help email me at raklein62@yahoo.com

    I'm not aware of any syntax ,parenthesis, and commas differences where one ti 83 or ti84 operates differently from a another. Usually programs do tranfer but, transferring system variable probably won't. I can see how hang ups with somethings could happen but, if the system varible was allocated by and on that calculator you should be ok. Is zscore gain by a downloaded program or is it a system varible? You may already know to unarchieve all varibles when they are being used.

Can you transfer ti83 os to ti 84?


The TI83Plus has the capability to transfer its OS to another handheld device. It is possible that the TI84Plus hardware will accept it. But why downgrade?. Why not resinstall the OS? The latest version 2.55MP is available on the TI website.
You say emphatically that you tried everything and maybe so, but I will ask you: Have tried to connect the calculator to a computer and explored its content with TI connect. You may retrieve some information about its status.
The TI connect software will allow you to transfer a version of the OS even if the calculator appears to refuse to turn ON (screen contrast problem.) If it cannot it will let you know.

Try again.

Find the antilog on the TI-84 Plus for finding pH in chemistry problems


I'm not specifically familiar with the TI83 or TI84 but I've used a lot of TI calculators in my time, so I'll give it a try. If your trying to find the antilog of a number in base 10 enter the number and hit the (10 to the X) button. If you're trying to find the antilog of a number in in base e (natural log), enter the number and hit the (e to the X) button.

kinda. The TI-85 programs differently, lacks a table feature, is not upgradable, has redefinable keys, has a larger screen, is smaller, energy efficient, TI-86 semi-compatible, and is older.
The TI-84+ has archive memory, flash-upgradable, FSTN (clearer) screen, 16*8 screen, USB On-The-Go compliant, almost a centimeter longer, assembly language support, and a tad bit faster.

TI-82: $89

Free TI-85: $0
TI-84 plus: $119.99
TI-84+SE: $129-139
