Hello,

First you must configure your calculator to perform 3D graphics
Press MODE
1.The first line shown is Graph. Unfold the hidden menu list with the right arrow and choose Graph 5:3D
2. Press ENTER to validate.

Now you must define the surface you want to draw
1. Press the [diamond] key then [Y=] to get a list of function names, the first of wich is z1
2. Enter the following function (or your own) z1=(x^3*y-y^3*x)/390
( x cubed times y -y cubed times x) divided by 390.
3 Press ENTER.

Graph the function
Press the [diamond] key then [GRAPH]

The graphing screen displays progess in %. When it is finished you will see a weird sombrero.

Hope it helps

How do I stop my ti89 from dumping the programs in main when I open a APP

Hi,
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
New users get to try the service completely Free afterwhich it costs \$6 per call and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
Goodluck!

### How do you graph this equation r(t)=cos(t) * i + sin(t)* j + t *k (x,y,z)= (i,j,k) on a ti89

The calculator does not support 3D parametric functions, but there is a procedure that will help you do that. Here is the link to the page that describes it.

### I try to graph an absolute value on my Ti 89 and I put the inequality in right but when I go to graph it my calculator says undefined variable.

If you want to graph the absolute value of a function, feed the function to the absolute value ie graph y= abs(f(x)). The calculator will take care of it. See screen captures where I draw the function y1=x^3-5x^2-3 and y2='x^3-5x^2-3'. On the first graph the function is represented and on the second the function and its absolute value.

The calculator knows how to calculate the absolute value of an expression. The name of the command is abs(

### I have a TI-89, I enter a function and then switch to graph. It shows nothing. I tried simple functions like y=x, y=2 and nothing.. It does show the X and Y axis only.

What probably happened is the graph was turned off. to turn the graph back on, select the function (ex. y1) and then press f4. This should turn the graph back on and you should see the function.
Hope this helps.

### Deleting the 3D function

I heard of instructor disabiling APPS but, not functions. One reason I can't see that is I can download a program that does the same thing and hide it w/ instructor even knowing its there unless he ran a search in ever folder or open a lot of programs

### I cannot plot graph in my Ti 89 graphing calculator

That means one (or more) of the variables you have in your function is not defined. Check to make sure you didn't misspell any variable name. Also, check to make sure you didn't run two variable names together. "ab" is the variable ab, not a times b.
