Question about Texas Instruments TI-83 Plus Calculator

You tried to use an argument to a function that was not in the function's domain. For example, the arcsine function takes an argument from negative one to positive one. Trying to take the arcsine of 2 will generate a domain error.

If you need further assistance, please specify the exact function and argument that is generating this error.

The arccosine function is defined for arguments in the range -1 to +1. -125.85/-120.36 is larger than 1 and hence outside the domain of the arccosine function.

Make sure the argument is between negative one and positive one, inclusive. The inverse cosine is defined only for arguments in that domain, anything else will give you a domain error.

The second argument is a probability and as such must have a value between 0 and 1, yet you gave it a value of 95. That is clearly outside the interval [0, 1].

Is your Ti83 plus in degree mode. You can change to radians by pressing the MODE key, and sliding down 2 more positions, and press the ENTER key. Because you got this error your principle value for x and y should be examined. Generally you really should be in radian mode when working with arcsin (aka. sin^-1), and arccos. You probably weren't using arctan because, you would have never gotten this error message due to the fact it goes on forever. And this way your answers for y= arcsin(x), or arccos(x) will be on the x axis, and domains at 0, pi/2, and pi.

You can work in degree mode but, if the number you place in the brackets of your arc sin or arc cos function is larger than 1 or smaller than -1 you will get a ERR:DOMAIN. Using the arctan or (aka. inverse tan) function in the degree mode can be used for computing endless waves, or as an angles that are usually in brackets of cosine or sine. Example: cos(arctan(Beta). This functions that y to never be greater than 1 or, less than 0. Example: sin(arctan(angle). This functions that y to never be less than -1 or, greater than 1.

I hope this answers your question to why you got this error and, helps you to decide on what the correct mode setting should be.

Since you are familiar with sines, cosines, you know that their ranges (interval of values) varies from -1 to 1. The inverse functions of sine and cosine tkae their values in that very domain, [-1,1].

However you fed the arc sine function (sin^-1) a vlaue of (25/20.48) and that value is obviously larger outside the [-1,1] domain, hence the DOMAIN error message.

No such domain limitations exist for arc tangent (tan^-1) because the range of the tangent function spans the open interval ]negative infinity to positive infinity[.

While the domain of the sine function is the whole of the real line, it range spans the interval [-1,1]. In other words the sine of an arbitrary angle is imperatively somewhere in the closed interval [-1,1].

So when you want to find the arc sine corresponding to a given value of a sine function, you cannot give as argument to the arc sine [sin^-1] a value that lies outside the interval [-1,1].

For your case, the argument is 60 and it is outside the permitted domain [-1,1]. That is why the calculator protests by signaling a domain error.

if your solution comes out negative, it will say this because x^2 can never be negative. therefore, your answer is out of the domain of the function and will not register because it isnt a real solution

You need to check parameters for LAN and e-mail settings (IP address, Subnet mask, gateway address, SMTP-server address, DNS-server address, etc). It is also important to enter "From address" in a correct form, i.e. name @domain.xxx otherways above error will be displayed.

I think you may find arcsin(x) is equivalent in older nomenclature to sin^-1 (x)...ie use the "2nd" and the SIN key instead of typing arcsin.

eg. arcsin(0.5) is 30 degrees is the same as sin^-1(0.5)

The ^-1 does not mean reciprocal, but "the angle whose sin is." Here the minus one indicates a kind of inverse operation. The word arcsin indicates that same inverse.

Arcsine is only defined for arguments in the range [-1...+1]. If you supply an argument outside that range, you will get a domain error.
