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

I try to sellect more than one equation on the "Y=", but it doesn't let me. What should I do?

Your scientific calculator is unable to solve complex equation with complex coefficients. You should try to solve by hand directly using the quadratic formula or by factoring the polynomial in z

failing that, another way would be to set z=x+iy, substitute this for z, carry out the algebra and try to separate real and imaginary parts. But your two equations will constitute a system of two quadratic equations. I am not aware of any general method to solve coupled nonlinear equations.

Good luck.

Given y-4=0, it's easy to see that the y intercept is 4. There is no x intercept.

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.

If this doesn't do it, please reply to this post and give a sample equation that causes this error.

Not all calculators have that. The Fx115ES and the FX991 ES have a lot more options thatn the FX300Es and FX350ES. I believe you only have COMP (general computational mode), Table and STAT.

Why? It was not designed that way.

try taking out the triple A batteries and leaving the calculator to sit with them out for a minute or so, replace them and check if it's fixed. If that doesn't work you can do the same, but take out the small button back up battery as well. If you're still not having luck you should call ti cares (800-842-2737) they're usually helpful.

Try pressing Zoom 6, if that doesn't work you can go to the memory menu and reset the calculator

You can solve equations two ways: The EQN computational mode or the SOLVE application.

IN the EQN mode you can solve linear equations in one, two and three unknowns; the quadratic equation; and the cubic equation.

Enter the EQN mode by following the instructions on the following screen capture. Press 5:EQN

You have three types of equations.

Once you select the type of equations, a template is displayed where you enter the relevant coefficients.

Under each label (a, b, etc. ) enter a coefficient and press ENTER to move to the next. With a cubic equation, or a linear equation in 3 unknowns, you have to use the Right arrow to display the cells where you enter the value of d.

After you input all necessary coefficients press the = sign to get the solution.

To use the SOLVE feature, see the screen capture that follows. It comes from the Casio manual.

Good luck

Hello,

You must first eliminate the denominators by reducing the different expressions to the same denominators. Use the distributivity property of multiplication to expand your terms. Gather similar monomials. Do all the cleaning to reduce your equation to one of the 2 types that the calculator can handle.[Mode][5:EQN] [3: ax2+bx+c] or [4:ax3+bx2+cx+d]

**Remember :Any solution that makes one of the original denominators equal 0 must be rejected.**

**Hope it helps.**

I assume you are speaking of solving a system of equations with a number of unknowns. If not, please correct me. Here's an example in practice:

If you have a system of 3 equations with 3 unknowns, you would set up your matrix so that the coefficients of each variable for a particular equation are on one row. So, given equations x + y + z = 0, 2x + 3y - 4z = 1, x + -z = -1 you would type the following into your calculator: [[1,1,1,0][2,3,-4,1][1,0,-1,-1]] and press enter to make sure you typed it correctly. notice that in the third row there is a zero, since we have zero time y for the third equation. Then row-reduce the matrix (2nd > 5 > 4 > 4 or in the CATALOG as rref). You should get out the matrix [[1,0,0,-1][0,1,0,1][0,0,1,0]]. This says that x=-1 y = 1 z=0 since my first column contained the coefficients for the x variable, the second for the y variable, and the third for the z variable. The last column contains the solution, the part on the other side of the equals sign.

Hope this helps! For more reading (from someone else; I just made this one up), check out the Wikipedia articles on Gaussian elimination and Systems of linear equations

ohh forget it, I already found the solution.

I just uninstalled the Transfrm application.
