Question about Texas Instruments TI-89 Calculator

When factoring or finding deriv. it gives me number?

Before it works fine, when I try to factor, expand, find d but now it give me only numbers. I'm guessing I probably messed up on some settings and I try going through the mode menu changing everything and nothing worked.

Before

d/dx( 3x^2+2x,X) = 6x+2

Now
Same thing = 62

Factoring gives me something similar.

Oh yeah, you must've archived x, that is, you put a number onto the x variable so that the calculator calculates the answer for you, and THEN AUTOMATICALLY calculates the answer when x is in terms of that number. I am guessing you accidentally did 10[sto] x at one point. You can simply unarchived the x number and everything will be dandy!

My ti 89 won't factor

The polynomial cannot be factored in the set of Real numbers: The roots of the polynomial equation are complex.
You should use the command cFactor( found under F2:Algebra> A:Complex>2:cFactor(
However, you should set the Mode Complex>Rectangular, and the EXACT/APPROXIMATE mode to Exact, otherwise your roots will be in decimal representation.

When typing in the following I go not get the right answer on nspire cas expand((3m^3n^2)(2mn)) give me 6m^3n^2 mn instead of 6m^4n^3 why?

Simple. The calculator interpreted what you entered as much as it could. However when it got to the 2mn part, it recognized the factor 2 and carried out the multiplication of 3 and 2 to give 6, but you never defined for it what mn was. To make sure it understands, insert an explicit multiplication sign between m and n, otherwise it considers the grouping as some new variable. Implicit multiplication cases are easily recognized when they involve a number and a variable, but not when two letters follow one another.

Note: I believe you are not using the right command. Yes, it gives the result here, but the command you should be using is factor( rather than expand(. expand( will open up parentheses and lengthen the expressions. Just thought you might want to know.

Calculator is not expanding or factorising algebraic expressions as should. Gives answers in curly brackets which seem unrelated.

I am somewhat puzzled at your affirmation concerning factoring and expanding algebraic expressions. The TINspire does not do symbolic algebra, only the TI Nspire CAS does.
If you have the TINspire CAS, (version 2.x) you can
1. press the HOME button, then select A:Calculate.
2. In one of the pages, press MENU.
3. Select [3:Algebra]
4. Use Down Arrow or enter the number 2:Factor, or 3:expand
5. In the command line, expand( , complete the command by entering the expression, close the right parenthesis and press [ENTER].
6. The calculator should give you the expanded result.

When i try expand solve or factor i get a dimension error

Using solve and factor requires correct mode and proper equation set up. Ref to manual might help.

My screen has gotten much darker

use the advanced options page and reset the factor blue and red convergence defaults then do re apply the auto color defaults color at first it seemed very red (which is good because red was the missing factor in the green picture) but after reseting all the color and tints to the normal ranges I then reset the color auto correct again and all seems fine.

Factoring and expanding

try going to var link and deleting any variables like x and whatever you're trying to factor as they may be stored as lists and thus come out factored like that

Loose connection with router

There must be something that has been introduced to your area that is causing distortion in your WiFi signal. 802.11 or WiFi is very susceptible to noise or signal distortion and can come from many things from interfering objects to other wireless signals such as Wireless phones. There are also many other things that can cause signal distortion I would look to see if you have added anything new around the time the unit lost signal. If your unit is working properly when you are closer to the router than this has to be the problem. Range is a big iffy factor when messing with WiFi.

TI-89 Factoring Not Working

I think what you want to do is not to factor but to expand, which is the option right under factor [F2, 3]. expand((x-5)^2) = x^2-10x+25
