• manuel oliva Jun 06, 2010

Many of the TI-84s come with an application. I believe that it's called
conic sections or something to that effect. Look in the APPS section

• savalis2 Jun 06, 2010

what/where is apps section? how do I enter an equation to see how ot graphs?

### How do I get it to graph something like y<2x

Press the Y= key. In the Y1= line, enter 2x+1 for the expression. Repeatedly press the left-arrow key until the cursor blinks over the down-sloping diagonal line at the very left of that line. Press ENTER three times to change the graph mode to a triangle below the diagonal. Press the GRAPH key to see the graph.

If you still have trouble, reply to this post and describe what you're getting.

### How do i graph?

The fact that you are asking how to graph makes believe that you solved the problem about 'invalid dimension' . I am glad that worked for you.

This

1. Prepare calculator for graphing
Turn StatPlotsOff to avoid errors:

Press [2nd][STATPLOT][4:PlotsOff][ENTER].

2. Setup Graph type
• Press [MODE] key.
• In Mode set up screen, make set the angle unit (if you are drawing trigonometric functions)..
• Use the arrows to move cursor to 3rd line to highlight degree or radian and press [ENTER]. The important thing is that you be aware of the unit so that you do not get unexpected results.
• On same screen, verify that Func is highlighted. If you are drawing PARametric plots, POLar plots or SEQuence plots, you highlight the relevant item in the list
• If it is not, use arrow to highlight Func and press [ENTER] to validate.
• Do not worry if you do not have exactly the same screen as in the screen picture (We may have different OS Versions)

3. Entering the functions to draw (assuming you want to draw y= functions)
• Press [Y=] to enter function editor.
• Type in a function
• Press [ENTER] at the end of each function.
• Before pressing [GRAPH], make sure that all the = signs that define the functions to be graphed are highlighted white on black. If one is not highlighted, use arrow to move cursor on the sign and press [ENTER].
• In the screen capture 4 functions are slated to be drawn.

4. Selecting the Graph Style (You may ignore this now, because it is unimportant for just one graph)
• Select the graph style: The small piece of line to the left of a Y that defines a function is the style.
• Move cursor on it and press [ENTER] .
• Each [ENTER] (on same line) selects another style.
• On the next screen you have all the styles available on the calculator.
• Do not select the bubble on line 6: It is for animations. It will not leave a trace at the end of the plot.

5. Drawing the Graphs
• Press [GRAPH] to see the graphs.
• If one of them is missing, verify that its = is still highlighted, then use the [WINDOW] to set the Window dimensions,
• Here are the dimensions of the standard window

6. ZOOMING
You can also press [ZOOM] to adjust.

The selection 6:ZStandard sets the dimensions as on the screen Titled Window (above).

### 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.
