Question about Texas Instruments TI-Nspire Graphic Calculator

When I graph two graphs and then find the intersects the coordinates of the intersects are always rounded up. like, the x value for one of the coordinates was 2.15 but it gave me 2.2 but i needed to see 2.15. how can i get it to leave about 4 numbers behind the decimal?I tried messing with the floats for graph and geometry... doesnt work. I've got a finals pretty soon please help.

SOURCE: Graph and trace buttons don't work

This is probably because you have the stat plot on. You would need to go to y= and then go to the top where it says stat plot 1 and un highlight it if it is highligted. That should fix your problem.

SOURCE: Calculator won't graph

You have either entered data in lists where one list is longer than the other or in your y= screen, one of the plots is turned on. If a plot is turned on the letters are in white surrounded by a black box. To turn off the plots, higlight the plot that is on and press enter.

Another fast solution is to press, 2nd the the plus sign then the numbers 7 then 1 then 2. It will restore factory settings.

SOURCE: Says error when trying to graph.

From a lack of a response I'm assuming this is no longer a problem. If it is still a problem, please post a comment specifying the error message.

I believe I already showed you with a profusion of details how to graph functions on the calculator. It would very kind of you to refer to the post that answered your question, so as not to make us answer it all over again. Much appreciated.

Read the following to use the intersection function.

- You draw two or more graphs.
- After the graphs are displayed, press [2nd][TRACE] to access the (CALC)ulate menu.
- Select [5:Interesct]
- You will be prompted for a first curve: the equation of the curve will be displayed at the top left corner of the screen. If it is one the intersecting curves, press [ENTER]
- You will be prompted for the second curve. (You can move from one curve to another by pressing the UpArrow or DownArrow).
- After two curves are selected, you will be prompted for a guess for the X-value of an intersection point: you can use the keypad to enter a guess or use the left or right arrow to move the cursor towards a point of your choosing (if there are more than one point).
- After a short while the calculator gives you a solution.
- If it fails, you must make a better guess.

Testimonial: *"Thank you so much for answering this and my previous one, it is really very kind of you.I am sorry for being so stupid with the calculator. I can work this out manually but can never manage to get the right information on the calculator despite using a book called Tapping in Mathematics. Thanks to your very clear explaination, it seems so easy now. "*

How about starting a new document, or adding a new page, or just turning the machine off without saving?

That is a round-about way to solve cos(x)=0.543 by graphing. Use the inverse function of the cosine arccos or cos^-1

If cos(x)=0.543 then** x=arccos(0.543)**

To graph a trigonometric function it is more natural to use the radian as the unit. However in geometry it is more common to use the degree. To solve an equation like**x=arccos(0.543)** where you want the answer to be degree, change the document settings to make the default angle unit the degree.

Make the graphing angle unit the degree and set that as default by selecting Make Default and press Enter.

Just return to the Y= function editor and type your function again. Press Graph or 2nd GRAPH and you will find your table.

If I'm understanding you correctly, you want to graph something like

5x+3=9

If this is correct, graph 5x+3 in the y1 line and 9 in the y2 line. To find the solution, you will press 2nd, then trace the intersection and hit enter 3 times. This will get the solution you need for the equation.

If this is not what you are wanting to do, you need to be try again and elaborate more.

simply divide the function by the domain you wish.

In your example, you wanted to graph y=x for x>=0.

You should graph the function f1=(x)/(x>0)

To find out when y=900, graph the function in f1, and then graph the equation y=900 (which will be a horizontal line) and use the intersect function to find where they cross. The x-coordinate of the intersection is the solution you are seeking.

i think there are programs but with something as simple as that you should be able to work it out manually....

3x+25-5x=5x-5x

-2x+25-25=0-25

-2x=-25

x=25/2 or 12.5

3x+25-5x=5x-5x

-2x+25-25=0-25

-2x=-25

x=25/2 or 12.5

The calculator only displays from -10 to 10 on the x and y axes, and both of your lines are outside of that range. However, it is easy to change that.

1. Hit the gray "WINDOW" button that is directly under the screen

2. Change "Xmax" to 150

3. Change "Ymax" to 200

Remember to change both of those values back to 10 when you are done with this problem!

Here's how to graph it:

1. Hit the "Y=" button

2. Enter your first equation after Y1, and your second equation after Y2

3. Look over both the equations to make sure you typed them correctly

4. Hit the "GRAPH" button

5. If you don't see the intersection you will need to adjust Xmax and Ymax again

6. Hit Hit "2ND" and the "TRACE" to bring up the "CALC" menu

7. Scroll down to "intersect" and hit enter

8. Hit enter 3 times (You use the first and second curve options when you have more than 2 lines)

9. It should display the coordinates at the bottom

10. I got (76, 142.1) for the intersection

Thanks for asking this question! I used to do this a much harder way, but while I was calculating the answer to your question I hit a wrong button and accidentally found this method!
