If you want to enter a complex number, simply put in as (a,b). For example, to enter the complex number 1+2i, enter
( 1 , 2 )

### Is it possible to calculate factors using a TI-30x IIS

I believe factors can be calculated on any basic calculator.

Starting with 1, increasing by 1 until you get to square root (number) + 1

Let's do an example.

28
square root (28)+1 = 6
Factors
1, 28/1=28
2, 28/2=14 14*2 - 28 = 0 (when you divide, you get no decimal)
3, 28/3=9.33333 - not a factor - doesn't go in evenly
4, 28/4 =7
5, 28/5=5.6 - not a factor - doesn't go in evenly
6, 28/6=4.66666 - not a factor
So now we can list our factors - 1, 28, 2, 14, 4, 7
Putting them in order, we get 1, 2, 4, 7, 14 and 28.

Good luck,

Paul

### What is factoring and give the examples

Quick-Start Guide When you enter an expression into the calculator, the calculator will simplify the expression by expanding multiplication and combining like terms. At this point the calculator will attempt to factor the expression by dividing a G C F, and identifying a difference between two squares, or factorable trinomials. Use the following rules to enter expressions into the calculator. Variables Any lowercase letter may be used as a variable. Exponents Exponents are supported on variables using the ^ (caret) symbol. For example, to express x 2, enter x ^ 2. Note: exponents must be positive integers, no negatives, decimals, or variables. Exponents may not currently be placed on numbers, brackets, or parentheses. Parentheses and Brackets Parentheses ( ) and brackets [ ] may be used to group terms as in a standard expression. Multiplication, Addition, and Subtraction For addition and subtraction, use the standard + and - symbols respectively. For multiplication, use the * symbol. A * symbol is optional when multiplying a number by a variable. For instance: 2 * x can also be entered as 2x. Similarly, 2 * ( x + 5 ) can also be entered as 2 ( x + 5 ) ; 2 x * ( 5 ) can be entered as 2 x ( 5 ). The * is also optional when multiplying parentheses, example: ( x + 1 ) ( x - 1 ). Order of Operations The calculator follows the standard order of operations taught by most algebra books - Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication and Division, Addition and Subtraction. The only exception is that division is not currently supported; attempts to use the / symbol will result in an error. Division, Square Root, Radi cals, Fractions Division, square root, radi cals, and fractions are not supported at this time. A future release will add this functionality.

that's all I can say basically I learned it this way.

### Ti-36x pro

In the top right corner of the screen. There is a button that says 2nd.

Press 2nd then press the button that is four buttons further down on the same row of buttons.

### Square root of 206-900 divided by 5 than b 4

First off let me say there are 2 ways to answer this question depending on what you are taking the square root of.

((sqrt(206) - 900 )/ 5) / 4 =

sqrt(206) = 14.35

14.35-900 = -885.64

-885.64/5 = -177.13

-177.13/4 = -44.28 this would be the answer.

Or if you are takeing the sqrt of 206 - 900 which equals -694 then this is a different type of problem.

then you would have

sqrt(-694) = 26.34i

26.34i/5 = 5.26i

5.26/4 = 1.31i

but that is if you are using imaginary numbers that is what the "i" stands for, you cannot take a sqrt of a negative number directly because anytime you multiply 2 numbers together the result must be positive. So hopefully that helps you out, Just remeber where you put your parenthases is very important, like in this case your are potentially asking 2 different questions. Good luck

### Does my ti-86 solve sq. root problems

Yes, your Ti 86 should solve square root problems. At the HOME screen press [CLEAR] [2nd] [x^2] which gives the (Square Root Symbol) to display at the Home screen. Then enter the number you want the square root of and close the bracket [ ) ] and, press the [ENTER] key.

You can even get the square root of complex numbers too. Select the correct complex format in the mode settings. For example: I'll do one in the rectangular form by enter a number as (a, b). I then will go to [2nd] [MODE] then [Arrow down] 3 times and make sure the RectC is highlighted and selected. Then quit out of the mode settings screen and enter [CLEAR] [2nd] [x^2] [ ( ] [9] [ , ] [ - ] [4] [ ) ] [ ) ] [ENTER], this displays the SQRT((9,-4)) equals (3, 2); The real part is 3 and the imaginary part 2.

### The square root of -(49/64)

The square root of a negative number does not exist in lR, the set of real numbers.
In the set of Complex numbers the square root of -49/64 is (7/8)i, where i is the imaginary unit defined by i^2=-1.

### I cant figure out how to get the square root of a negative number

The square root of a negative number is an imaginary number, and the TI-30XA does not deal with imaginary numbers.

However, the square root of -x is equal to i times the square root of x. So, to calculate the square root of -4, for example, press 4 square_root = and read 2. Thus the square root of -4 is 2i.

### How do you use the i function. My teacher couldnt find it and we are doing imaginary numbers so i realllly need to know

Turn calculator ON.
If you see no icons, press [MENU] key.
Use Arrows to focus on RUN and press [EXE]
Press [OPTN]
Among the TABS that appear at the bottom of screen you have CPLX.
Press [F3] to activate it.
The menu TABS that are displayed allow you manipulate complex numbers:
F1 :i imaginary unit i
F2: Abs takes the absolute value of a complex number.
F3:Arg, gives the argument (angle the complex number makes with the positive X-Axis)
F4: Conj calculates the Conjugate of a number.
F5: ReP extracts the Real part
F6:Imp extracts the Imaginary part.

For other operations use the operation keys [Plus] [MINUS] [*][/] [X^2] [Square root]. Be careful using the universal power key or the xroot key as it may lead to a Memory error.

### How do you use the imaginary number with the TI-84 calculator?

If you want the answer in rectangular form, set MODE a+bi and tap ENTER and QUIT. Tap square root sign, tap (-)4 and close the parenthesis and tap ENTER. The answer is shown as 2i.
If you want the answer in polar form, set MODE to re^xi and and DEGREE. Tap ENTER and QUIT. Tap the square root sign, tap (-)4, close the parenthesis, and tap ENTER. The answer shown is 2e^90i. (2 at ninety degrees). If you selected RADIAN mode, the answer would be 2e^1.57i (2 at 1.57 radians; or 2 at pi/2 radians)
