You're probably trying to graph a function that does not involve stat plot features. You can correct this by turning off the stat plot features. Press "2ND" "STAT PLOT" and then select 4:PlotsOff.

2. Type in a legitimate function.
3. Press ENTER to validate the function.
4. Press the GRAPH key to draw the graph.
5. Play with the window dimensions or use the ZOOM feature
to see more of the graph (or less).


Try your settings by drawing the function y= x
If you have problem with Invalid Dimension or other errors, turn the

I am using a casio graphing calculator and I am trying to graph a parametric function. I put the mode on Param and I inserted xt and yt and i press draw. It draw but then stops and gives me an arugment...


The argument error must have something to do with the parametric functions you are drawing. I do not think anybody would know where to look unless you give us the functions.
As to the range of the T-variable, you can set it by pressing [SHIFT][F3] to open the (V-Window) configuration screen. It starts showing Xmin, Xmax. etc. To get to the T range, use down arrow (about 7 times).

How can i draw graph.


This should help you setup your calculator to do graphing.

1. Prepare calculator for graphing
Turn StatPlotsOff to avoid errors:

Press [2nd][STATPLOT][4:PlotsOff][ENTER].

2. Setup Graph type
  • Press [MODE] key.
  • In Mode set up screen, make set the angle unit (if you are drawing trigonometric functions)..
  • Use the arrows to move cursor to 3rd line to highlight degree or radian and press [ENTER]. The important thing is that you be aware of the unit so that you do not get unexpected results.
  • On same screen, verify that Func is highlighted. If you are drawing PARametric plots, POLar plots or SEQuence plots, you highlight the relevant item in the list
  • If it is not, use arrow to highlight Func and press [ENTER] to validate.
  • Do not worry if you do not have exactly the same screen as in the screen picture (We may have different OS Versions)

3. Entering the functions to draw (assuming you want to draw y= functions)
  • Press [Y=] to enter function editor.
  • Type in a function
  • Press [ENTER] at the end of each function.
  • Before pressing [GRAPH], make sure that all the = signs that define the functions to be graphed are highlighted white on black. If one is not highlighted, use arrow to move cursor on the sign and press [ENTER].
  • In the screen capture 4 functions are slated to be drawn.

4. Selecting the Graph Style (You may ignore this now, because it is unimportant for just one graph)
  • Select the graph style: The small piece of line to the left of a Y that defines a function is the style.
  • Move cursor on it and press [ENTER] .
  • Each [ENTER] (on same line) selects another style.
  • On the next screen you have all the styles available on the calculator.
  • Do not select the bubble on line 6: It is for animations. It will not leave a trace at the end of the plot.

5. Drawing the Graphs
  • Press [GRAPH] to see the graphs.
  • If one of them is missing, verify that its = is still highlighted, then use the [WINDOW] to set the Window dimensions,
  • Here are the dimensions of the standard window

6. ZOOMING
You can also press [ZOOM] to adjust.

The selection 6:ZStandard sets the dimensions as on the screen Titled Window (above).

How do you fix an MA error when attempting to graph a function? I have even tried to graph simple functions like (X) or (5) and it still says MA error.


A. This is due to a mathematical error such as
  1. dividing by 0,
  2. an illogical operation,
  3. calculations outside the range of a function,
  4. using the exponential function with the [^] key,
  5. logarithm of a negative number,
  6. calculating the factorial of numbers larger that 69,
  7. what have you.
  8. Check the expression of the function you are trying to graph.
B. Reset your calculator and start again: Press the button on the back of the calculator; use a starightened paper clip.Draw the line y=XPress Menu.
  1. Use keys to highlight [GRAPH] and press [EXE].
  2. Make sure the screen that opens says Graph Func Y= at the top.
  3. On the Y1= line enter X (use the [X,theta,T] key under the [ALPHA] key.
  4. Press [F6:Draw].
  5. You should see a staright line passing through the origin (0,0).

Having problem with ti 83 calculator everytime i graph it read error invalid dimensions


You must deactivate the statistical plots. If you do statistical graphs, the graphing is reconfigured in a way that happens to be incompatible with regular fuction graphs.

  1. To deactivate the statistical plots.
  2. Press [2nd][Y=] to access the (STAT PLOT) menu.
  3. Press [4:PlotsOff][ENTER].
  4. Calculator displays Done.
  5. You are ready to draw the function graphs.

Graphing inverse equations


Hello,
In parametric mode you are not drawing one function, but two functions X1(T) and Y1(T). If you use the DrawInv( command either on X1(T) or Y1(T) you get a syntax error.
However if you are drawing functions in Funct mode you can draw the inverse of the function that has been graphed.
Here is how you do it.

[2nd][Draw][8: DrawInv] [ENTER]
The command appears on the home screen, and you need to tell it the function it will act on. To do so press
[VARS] --> Y-Vars [1:Function]
and select the function you want, say Y1, if Y1 has already been defined.

DrawInv Y1 [ENTER]
Both Y1 and its inverse will be drawn.

Hope it helps.

I need to find out how to graph fuctions and the derivatives using a cfx 9850gc plus ASAP


Hello,
Let us start wih the derivatives. To obtain the values of derivatives at points on a graph, you must set Derivative to ON
Press [AC/On] to trun calculator on. If you do not see the icons press [MENU], with arrows select [RUN] and press[EXE] . The screen clears.
Press [SHIFT][SETUP ] . The first few options must be set as follows
Mode : : Comp
Function Type : Y=
Draw Type : PLot
Derivative : ON This is the one to make derivatives visible
Angle : Rad unles you have to use degrees.
Coord : on if you want the x,y coordinates to be displayed
Grid : Off
Axes : ON to display x and y axes
Press [EXE] to save options. You are taken to [Run] screen.
Press [Menu] Play with arrows to select [GRAPH] and press [EXE]

You see a list Y1=, Y2= and so on
On the line Y1=, enter [SIN] [X,Theta, T] .
If function is complicated you may have to enter parentheses sin(X). When you finish to enter the functions you want to draw, hit [F6:Draw]
The graphs are displayed.
Press [F1:Trace] The trace function allows you to move cursor along the curve, while it displays the coordinates of the cursor. And since you set Derivative to ON, the trace displays also the value of the derivative of the curve at the position of the cursor.

There are other intersting tools, under [Sketch] and [G-solve ] such as minimum, maximum, tangente, inverse of the function drawn, integral under the curve, intercepts with the coordinates axes, etc. I will not spoil your fun by giving you the plot of the movie.

Hope it helps.
