How do i program formulas into my ti-83
To begin a program, press the "PRGM" button and create a new program, naming it however you like. Now, the best way to have it evaluate your numbers as a formula is to begin with a prompt. Press "PRGM", then toggle to the "I/O" menu from the selections at the top, then select option 2, "Prompt". On the same line, list the variables you wish the formula to evaluate, separated by commas. Press "ENTER" to begin a new line, then type out the formula, placing the corresponding letters in their proper places. Instead of an equal sign, use the "STO>" key and then another letter variable using the "ALPHA" key and any letter. Finally, press "ENTER" to begin a new line, press "PRGM", browse "I/O", and find option number 3, "Disp", followed by the letter variable you specified as the answer to your eqution.
