SOURCE: I need to find decreasing

While your TI-83 plus cannot explicitly find increasing or decreasing intervals, it can find the minimum(s) and maximum(s) of a function.
Press the "Y=" button.
Enter the equation in "y=" format into the first open equation.
Press the "GRAPH" key.
If the maximum and minimum of the curve are not shown in the window it has, press ZOOM->0.
Press 2ND->CALC (under the "TRACE" key).
Press 3 if you are trying to find a min, 4 if you're trying to find a max.
It will ask for bounds. Enter a left and right bound by looking at the graph itself and choosing a left bound that is clearly to the left of the min/max, and a right bound clearly to the right of the min/max.
Then it will ask you to guess a value. You can skip this step by pressing ENTER instead of entering a value.
It will calculate the value. To find increasing/decreasing intervals, just know that every interval with a minimum as the left bound and a maximum as the right bound is increasing, and vice versa.

### How do you change the interval for a arc cos

I'm not sure of the question, but to plot arccos set mode to: graph='function' and angle to 'degrees' (for example). Go to WINDOW and set xmin=-1, xmax=1, xscl=0.1, ymin=0, ymax=180, yscl=50, and xres=1. Press GRAPH. You will get a plot of arccos from -1 to 1.

### My TI-89 calculators finance app is giving me the wrong answers by a few 1000 or so and increases how far off it is the larger the figure

Make sure your decimals are set to the correct number.
And also you can perform a factory reset on the unit to make sure all is back to normal.
Just be aware that it will delete any information which you have stored into your calc.

Resetting
After using the TI-89 and changing modes several times, you may set the calculator back
to all default modes by pressing 2nd 6 (MEM), F1(Reset) and 3 or by highlighting
3:Default and pressing ENTER. To reset all memory press 2nd, 6 (MEM) then F1(Reset)
and select 1: All.

### How to solved the series in my calculator, (integral with sen and cos), AND solve sumatories interval of convergence of the power series. Taylor series and MaClaurian

Unfortunately, TI-89s are not very good at infinite series. You're better off using something more powerful like Matlab or Mathematica. Sorry!
