Question about Texas Instruments TI-83 Plus Silver Edition Calculator

1 Answer

Problem graphing.. I understand that I can type in multiple equations, say for y1, y2, y3... BUT, they won't all graph..only one will graph, then I have to press "Y=" again and highlight the next graph, and when this is graphed, the previous one is not graphed anymore. When I press "Y=", to the left of the y1, y2, y3, etc, there is not a " \ " or anything like that.. There is a triangle pointing to the right, like this " >" but solid, and i can press "enter" to change it to " >> ", or " >| " . It used to be a " \ " but something has happened with the settings..How do i get it back to normal?? Again, I UNDERSTAND that I can put multiple equations under Y1, Y2, Y3, etc and graph them all at the same time! My problem is my settings which are not allowing me to do so!

This is my last post. It seems that I squanderd my time for zilch. There is a simple way to reset the defaults or the RAM. I stopped suggesting it because ..(what is the point?).
Press [2nd][MEM][7:Reset][1:All Ram][2:Yes] [ENTER]. Message RAM cleared is displayed on screen. Press [CLEAR] key. Screen should clear the message.
If that does not solve your problem..

    This behavior is characteristic of the Transform application for
    dynamic graphing. It draws a family of curves for different values of a
    parameter.
    When it is used it takes over the graphing from the
    native OS. Since it is designed to draw many similar curves, only one
    function can be activated in the Y= editor screen. The change of the
    value of a parameter will generate several curves and no place is left
    for the other Y= function.
    To recover the normal graphing, Transform must be unloaded from memory.
    To do so


    1. Press the Apps button.

    2. Scroll down to select Transform

    3. Select it and press ENTER.

    4. A screen with title Transform Running appears.

    5. You will be prompted to continue or uninstall the APP (may be QUIT).

    6. Select the option to Uninstall (It will not delete it, just unload it from memory)

I use the Y= key and type in my two equations, then i hit the graph button and it doesn't show up, why won't it graph for me?


Hello,
Once you enter an equation the corresponding equal sign is highlighted by default. Before you draw the 2 graphs, move the cursor to Y3 or Y4 and verify that the = signs for Y1 and Y2 remain highlighted. If one is not highlighted, move the cursor on it and press ENTER.
If you still have problem, press [2nd][STATPLOTS][4: PlotsOff] [ENTER]
Command PlotsOff echoes on main screen. Press [ENTER], screen displays Done.
If all else fails, just reset the RAM by pressing [2nd][MEM][7:Reset][1:All RAM][2:Reset], press [CLEAR] to clear the message.
You shouild make it a habit to clear the RAM every time you start a new type of problem.

Hope it helps.

I can't graph more than one equation in the y= area of my Ti 84+


Hello,
The marking that so puzzle you define the type of line (or dots) to represent the graphs. Enter as many functions as there are Y variables.
After entering a function press [ENTER] to jump to the next one.
When finished entering all functions press GRAPH. If you want graphs drawn one after the other, in MODE highlight Sequential (6th line) and press ENTER. If you want graphs drawn simultaneously, in MODE (6th line) highlight Simul and press ENTER. Press 2ND QUIT to return to previous screen . Execute graph again.
Hope itr helps.

I can't see two graphics simultaneously.I write Y1= (something) and then i write another function Y2= (something). But when I click "enter" in the = sign of the second function, the black spot jumps to the...


To view both graphs, the = signs on both y1 and y2 must be contained in black boxes. If you put your cursor over the = sign on the second equation and hit enter, it turns that graph off and you won't be able to see anything but the equation in y1 line. If there is not black box around the = sign of any equation in any of the lines you have typed an equation into, you will not see the graph.

How to determine function in terms of coordinates


It depends on how complex the function is; there are different techniques. For a straight line of the standard form, usually shown as y=mx+b; this is a simple function of y in terms of x. So, determining the function in this case means finding values for m and b. --- m is the slope of the line, commonly called rise over run. Since your question asks in terms of coordinates, I would assume that you are looking at a problem giving you 2 points.

Probably something like p1 = (3,4); p2 = (5,8); the general form of this is p1=(x1,y1); p2=(x2,y2). The slope in this case is rise over run, in other words, the change in y divided by the change in x. This can be calculate between these two points as (y2-y1)/(x2-x1). In my sample above, this would be (8-4)/(5-3) = 4/2 = 2 giving the value of m.

To find the value of b (the y intercept) you need the value of y when x = 0. Since you already know that m, the slope is 2, consider a new point, call it p3 (x3,y3), pick either of the known points and solve the slope equation again, this time for y3. [m=(y3-y1)/(x3-x1)]. We know that x3 is 0, since we are trying to solve for y where that is true, so the equation becomes:

m=(y3-y1)/(-x1)
-x1*m=y3-y1
y3=y1-x1*m

y3 is really b in the standard form, since it is, by definition the intercept, or the value when x=0,
so
b=y1-x1*m -- this gives you the y intercept anytime you know the slope and one point on the line.

In the example, y1 = 4, x1=3 and we've already calculated m to be 2, so
b=4-3*2 = -2
So, the function would be

y = 2x -2

To check, plug in the values of the other point, p2, and see if they work

y2 = 2*x2 - 2

8=2*5-2

It's easier than it looks. It can help you to understand if you get some old fashioned graph paper and plot it so you can see what is happening.

My calculator will only graph one graph at a time.


This is simple... Back up all RAM, (press second+, then 2, then 1, press enter to back up something if backed up it will have a star by it) Then clear your RAM (pull out your batteries while the calc is still on or press second+, then 7, then 1)
Hope this helps!
