Hi,
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
goodluck!

The calculator cannot do symbolic algebra. If equation is aX^2+bX+c=0, write it in the form a(X^2+(b/a)X+(c/a))=0 and solve the quadratic equation X^2+(b/a)X+(c/a)=0. Get the approximate roots X1, and X2 (if they exist) and write your original equation in the for
a(X-X1)(X-X2)=0

How to solve quadratic equations on fx82ms calculator

You can do it the same way people did it before calculators were invented. Just use the quadratic formula: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quadratic_formula. Some sophisticated calculators have generalized equation solvers that can handle equations much more complicated than the quadratic, but the fx-82 isn't one of them.

How do i use this for algebra equations, putting in varables and such

If you are just trying to solve a simple quadratic equation by entering coefficients, this calculator does have those features. The TI-83 is a better choice for that kind of function.

I wanna solve quadratic equation by FX300ES, but I don't know how to do. Can u help me???

Set the computational mode to EQN: Press [MODE] and select the number corresponding to EQN. You will have the choice between linear, quadratic, or cubic. Select Quadratic. You will be given a template where to enter the values of the coefficients a, b, c. Enter the values of the coefficients in the right order and press [=] at the lower right side.

Can you factor quadratic equations on the Casio fx-11ES? If yes how?

Press MODE 5 to bring up the equation types. Press 3 for the quadratic. Enter the three coefficients. Press = to see the first root. If the display shows x1 then press down to see the other other root. If the display only shows x then that's a double root. Given the two roots x1 and x2, the factors of the quadratic are (x-x1) and (x-x2).

Refer to "Equation Calculations" on page E-55 of the manual and examples #094 and #095 in the appendix for examples of solving quadratic equations. If the you need the manual and/or appendix, you can download them from

How do I enter (simple step-by-step please) the quadratic equation into this model of calculator?? Thanks.

The TI-30XA does not offer any symbolic algebra or equation solving functions. You will need to do some work on paper. However, its not super difficult.

Solving quadratic equations (finding the roots) involve three steps:
1. Simplify the equation and bring into the normalized form x² + px + q = 0.
2. Determine the discriminant D = p² - 4q and check if there are two, one or no solutions at all.
3. Calculate the root(s), if any.
Lets do (1) with an example, 3x - 2 = ( 6 + x ) / x.

You should exercise this simplification with different examples until you can do it in your sleep. The goal is to get a form x² + px + q = 0, where in the above example case, p = -1 and q = -2.

Now, use the memory places #0 and #1 to store p and q, as in:

-1 [STO] 0
-2 [STO] 1

Next, you should determine the discriminant D = p² - 4q of the equation using your TI-30XA calculator. Having put the two values into the memory comes in handy here:

[RCL] 0 [x²] [-] 4 [x] [RCL] 1 [=] [STO] 2

Note, we put D into memory place #2, we will need it again later.

Now check the displayed value D:
• if D
• if D = 0, there is exactly one solution: -p / 2. Key in [RCL] 0 [+=-] [÷] 2 [=] and the displayed value is the only solution to the quadratic equation.
• if D > 0, there are exactly two solutions:

Key in [RCL] 0 [+=-] [+] [RCL] 2 [] [=] [÷] 2 [=] to get the first root, and
[RCL] 0 [+=-] [-] [RCL] 2 [] [=] [÷] 2 [=] for the second root.
In the example, the discriminant turns out to be 9, which is greater than 0, so there are two different roots. Following the key sequences you should get the roots x1 = -1 and x2 = +2. You can double check by calculating

and you'll receive the original, normalized equation.

As an exercise for your understanding: you can save a few keystrokes by saving -p to memory #0 instead of p. Try to figure out why this helps.
