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

I just got my calculator reset and i reinstalled some of the applications but now while plotting graphs such as (2x+1)/(x+1) which have oblique asymptotes or even vertical asymptotes like 1/x, there seems to be a line that connects the two parts. I don't remember this happening before as the graph just go along their asymptotes. Is this something to do with the settings?

The calculator can't tell the difference between a function with an aymptote and a function that rapidly goes from a large positive number to a large negative number in one step.

One way around this is to plot with the asymptote at one edge. Press the WINDOW key and change the limits. Another way is to change the plot type from Line to Dots. Press Y= to enter the Y= editor, select the function being plotted, press Left to highlight the = sign, then press ENTER repeatedly to cycle through the different graph styles.

The fx-115ES is not a graphics calculator so it will not display graphs on its screen. You can use it to make graphs by calculating the points and plotting them on graph paper.

I have drawn the curve for your function. On my TI84Plus with OS version 2.53MP the spurious asymptotes do not show, while on a TI83PLUS OS 1.12 they do if the graph is drawn as connected lines. It might be a bug that was corrected in newer OS (for TI84PLUS)

The graph from a TI83PLUS (the last one above) shows asymptotes when drawn connected, but no asymptotes appear if graph is drawn dotted.

The asymptote you see is in truth a spurious effect. It appears when you draw connected graphs. There is no command that turns that "non-existing feature" ON and OFF.

If you do not want to see the "asymptote" draw dotted graphs. The drawback is that you will have fewer points near the asymptote because the curve grows too fast. If you decrease the x-step to have more points, the graph will take longer and you may run out of RAM.

There is no vertical (or otherwise) asymptote feature on a TI84PLUS. It
seems to you that the calculator is drawing the asymptote. However
when you plot a CONNECTED Graph a line is drawn from one point to the
next: The last point on one side of the asymptote is thus connected to
the first point on the other side, effectively mimicking the drawing of
the asymptote.

To get rid of this spurious effect,**draw dotted graphs**,
but you will see fewer points, because the points are drawn at constant
intervals in X. This is set by the Xres variable, in the Window
configuration screen.

Here is a function that will "show" you a vertical asymptote on the TI84PLus, when graph is drawn connected, but on a calculator with a higher resolution, you see none. A calculator cannot handle infinity. You can with the help of your mind's sight, so to speak, see the asymptote on the graph.

A) Before drawing function Y1=f(X), R1=F(Theta), (X1=f(T0, Y1=f(T))

you should turn the statistical plots OFF.

To turn statistical plots off

B) If you cannot draw more than one function

Usually as soon as you start entering an expression in the Y= editor screen, the = sign is highlighted to ensure the drawing of a function. However, if you have previously used the Transfm application to draw dynamic graphs, it takes over the graphing functionality from the native OS and you can only draw a single graph.

The reason is that dynamic graphing needs one or two parameters that can be changed during the graphing process and the graph redrawn with a new value of a parameter, and you end up with a family of curves differing one from the other by the values of one parameters. But since the calculator has space for 10 graphs at most, only one function can be highlighted.

To make a long story short, you must Uninstall the Transfrm application from memory. The procedure will not erase it, just kick it out of memory.

You must deactivate the statistical plots. If you do statistical graphs, the graphing is reconfigured in a way that happens to be incompatible with regular fuction graphs.

- To deactivate the statistical plots.
- Press [2nd][Y=] to access the (STAT PLOT) menu.
- Press [4:PlotsOff][ENTER].
- Calculator displays Done.
- You are ready to draw the function graphs.

Another potential culprit is the Inequalz App. To uninstall it, do as for the Transfm and select the option that will unload it from memory.

Hi,

You are running the application called** Inequalz**. It can be used to plot inequality graphs. You must uninstall it (NOT DELETE) to return to the normal calculator configuration.

Press [APPS]. Scroll down to find Inequalz. Highlight its number in the list and press {ENTER]. You will see a screen**Inequal Running** and

Your calculator will unload it out of memory.

Reset the RAM and restart the graphs.

Hope it helps.

Hello,

I have answered this question multiple times. I have no idea why you calculator refuses to allow you to choose more graph styles. Maybe you should reset it by clearing the RAM.

Concerning the connected asymptotes.

In truth your function has**one aymptote** namely the straight line **x=2 **but your graph has two asymptotic branches, one tends towards -infinity, the other toward + infinity. That they seem connected is an illusion due to the finite resolution of the screen. This is made worse if you select a connected graph instead of a dotted one. I am enclosing a screen capture of the graph for the same function, drawn on a calculator with better resolution.

This clarification being given, it remains that you still have a problem since you cannot choose other styles. Do try to reset the RAM, and choose dotted graphs. If that does not work, maybe you should update the OS or reinstall it from education.ti.com.

I hope it solves your problem. If it does not, do not blame me, and remember that I tried my best.
