Question about Texas Instruments TI-89 Calculator

I´d like to get 99 answres instead of the default 30(I think) in home window.

When on the home screen, simply hit [F1] to get to the tools drop down menu. Either scroll down to format or hit [9]. Then a box will come up displaying the number of history reports. Simply hit the right key [>] and change the number to any interval of 10, up to 99. Then hit [ENTER] [ENTER] and you should be good...

The question basically is whether 105,000 becomes 106,000 or not.

It would not round down below 105,000 because it is already higher than that. So we concentrate on the "tail" of the number 105,099 and ask whether 099 (essentially 99 more than 105,000) is more than half way towards 106,000. In order to do that, the "tail" would have to be at least 500 (i.e., half way towards 106,000) as in 105,500. Because 99 is less than 500 the answer is no, the "tail" is not big enough to round up the number 105,099 to 106,000. The answer to rounding 105,099 to the nearest thousand is that because the "tail" is less than half way towards 106,000, the number would instead would round down to 105,000.

That is what I get with your numbers on the TI84 Plus Silver Edition 0.1870313608. I get the same on the TI83 Plus. What can I say?. Apart from an error entering the numbers ( a 6 for a 9, a 3 for an 8) I cannot think of anything else. Sorry.

The answer (0.06785^160= 1.117E-187, or 0.0005^160= 6.842E-529) is much too small to be displayed on normal scientific calculators, where the exponent is usually limited to -99.

Try using the Windows calculator (in scientific view) instead. It can usually be found at Start/All programs/Accessories.

It seems to me that it is doing its calculations correctly: 645,16 happens to be just the square of 25.4. Which makes me believe that you must have pressed the square key (maybe you did not notice).

Think about the problem the other way. The archer has a 70% chance of missing the bull's eye with any one shot. The odds of missing the bull's eye with both of two shots is .7*.7=.49. The odds of missing with all three shots is .7^3. So, how many shots must the archer take so that the odds of missing with all of them are less than .01?

Playing around with logarithms gives us log n = log .01 / log .7 or

n = 10^(log .01 / log .7)

Putting this into the calculator (you didn't specify the make and model, so I can't give you the exact keystroke sequence) gives a value of about 12.9 for n. Thus the archer should take at least 13 shots in order to have a 99% chance of getting at least one bull's eye.

The same answer comes out if you use natural logs instead of common logs.

Your calculator is set for GRAD instead of DEG, it means that it takes your input in gradian instead of degrees. You should press the DRG button until it displays DEG instead of GRAD.

Hello,

Reset the memory to defaults and you will not get the error.

[2nd][MEM][7:Reset][Defaults] [2:Reset] [ENTER]. Press [CLEAR] and them [Y=] to enter the function. No need to set Zoom. Defaults work fine for y1= 4X+3.

Press [GRAPH].

Hope it helps

I think you may find arcsin(x) is equivalent in older nomenclature to sin^-1 (x)...ie use the "2nd" and the SIN key instead of typing arcsin.

eg. arcsin(0.5) is 30 degrees is the same as sin^-1(0.5)

The ^-1 does not mean reciprocal, but "the angle whose sin is." Here the minus one indicates a kind of inverse operation. The word arcsin indicates that same inverse.
