Question about Texas Instruments TI-84 Plus Calculator
I have no way of knowing why it is giving you wrong answers. If you have an idea what the answer might be, you should use this knowledge to help the calculator find your solution, either by giving a better guess (initial value) or by restricting the domain of values, instead of -1e99 and 1E99.
It is also possible that you may have set up the problem incorrectly. For this reason I am describing how to use the Solver and the solve( command.
You have two ways to solve an equation with the TI84Plus
Press [MATH][0:Solver]. You see what is on the first picture (I entered K-0.5*V^2). Press [ENTER]. You see what is on the right picture.
In the interactive solver you enter a value for all the parameters, constants, for all, save the entity you are solving for, here V. So you must clear the 0 to the right of the = sign after the V. when finished you press [ALPHA][ENTER] (SOLVE).
Here is what I get for the small exemmy solver is giving me the wrong answers - 7b60093.jpg.
Left -rt=0 shows that the root was found to within the calculator's tolerance.
Hope it helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.
