Question about Texas Instruments TI-84 Plus Calculator
I want to plot a graph using X and Y coordinates but when i press 2nd graph there is no Y table unless I make a function for it.
How do I enter my own data for the Y table when there isnt one?
Is the calculator broken?
Sorry if you already know that, but I want to make sure we understand one another.
Say you want to graph the function Y1=2X+3.
You press [MODE] to make sure that the FUNC on 4th line is highlighted permanently. If it is you press [Y=]
On the first line where it says Y1= you enter 2*[X,T,Theta,n] +3.
The X is accessed with the key to the right of the [ALPHA] key.
As you key in your function, notice that the equal sign after Y1 is highlighted and remains so. When you finish entering the function press [ENTER] so that the cursor moves to the line Y2=. Make sure that the = sign after the Y1 in previous equation remains highlighted.
You can now draw the graph by pressing [GRAPH] or generate the table Y1=f(X) by pressing [2nd][TABLE]. Under no conditions should you enter YOUR own values. If the table does not appear there may be a problem, and you will not solve it by entering values.
Now let us try to get you calculator to work as it should.
Press [2nd][STATPLOT][4:PlotsOff] , the command PlotsOff echoes on main screen. Press [ENTER] to turn statistical plots OFF. Screen displays Done.
Press [2nd][CATALOG] [ENTER]. The list of all avilable command appears. Scroll down till you reach ClrAllLists. Move arrow to the correspondig line and press [ENTER] , command echoes on main screen as ClrAllLists. Press [ENTER] to erase all old statistical lists that may be stored in the calculator memory.
Now you are ready to graph or create the table of values. Press [2nd][Table] and the table should be displayed. All you can do with the values in the table is to look at them, examine them. You cannot modifie nor erase them.
If, for reasons of your own, you think you ought to be allowed to enter YOUR values, in the table, then this is not graphing functions. The name for that is DOING STATISTICS. And the procedure is tottaly different: You enter YOUR values in lists and use the calculator to draw the data points, and to find the best fit (the curve that models the pattern of data distribution best). When you decide which fit is the best, you can use the calculator to extract the equation for the curve and, if you want it, to draw the curve on the same graph where you raw data is represented.
Hope these clarifications helps.
