Hi,
You cannot use the ± in the definition of a function. If you need to consider two alternatives, you have draw each function separately, one function as Y1 and the other as Y2. I just checked the catalog of commands, and there is no ±.

Hope it helps.

### Is there a positive/negative sign all in one on the ti-84? like to use for the quadratic formula... -b (plus or minus[symbol here?]) the square root of... the rest

No. The calculator can calculate either value at one time, but not both. You can calculate the positive and then the negative (or the other way around), but a single calculation cannot produce two answers. A calculation can produce, for example, a list with two elements, but that's still a single result (a list).

### How to graph y=-5/2x-2 on ti-84 plus calculator

Press Y= (the key at the very top left, above the blue 2ND key). On the Y1= line, enter (-) 5 / ( 2 X ) - 2 if the function is "negative five over 2x minus 2" or (-) 5 / 2 X - 2 if the function is "negative five-halves x minus 2".
(The (-) is the key to the right of the decimal point.) Then press GRAPH (the very top right key) and the graph should appear. You can press WINDOW (just to the right of the Y=) and change the window settings if you wish.

### Trying to convert minus c to minus f in cal plus

Here are the formulas for conversion.
Let T_C be the temperature on the Celsius scale and T_F the temperature on the Fahrenheit scale.
0 _C correspond to 32 _F
100 _C correspond to 212 _F

Generally
1. T_C =(5/9)*(T_F -32) ; for T_F=212 _F , T_C = 5/9*(180)= 100 _C
2. T_F= (9/5)T_C + 32 ; for T_C=100_C, T_F = (9/5)*100+32 = 212_F
Problem for you : Find the temperature which has the same value on both scales.

### Plus or Minus Sign

I'm assuming you want the +/- symbol like you see in the quadratic formula. There is no key to enter this. You will have to enter 2 separate problems. Enter the numbers with the + symbol and then enter the numbers with the - symbol.
