You're not putting in the f(x)= part, are you?

I put in x-1/x^2+3-4 exactly as you gave it and can't reproduce your result. Exactly what are you putting in?

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!

### How do I graph a simple equation on my TI-86, without getting an error 07 message? y=-1.5x+3

Error 07 Syntax
Means you made a typing error while entering the equation. Using the minus sign instead of the negation sign (change sign) (-), can produce a syntax error. Maybe you need to explicitly type the multiplication sign
y= (-) 1.5*x +3
Try entering it as 3 - 1.5*x

### How can I graph Y= 2X+3 on an HP 48GX? I have

Enter the equation as 2*X+3. Make sure that the name of the independent variable X in the equation and that on the INDEP:X line are both Capital letters or both lowercase letters.

### How to use casio 9850GC PLUS to solve equations in polar form?

Put the calculator in Equation solving mode. Select F3:Solver. Enter your equation; use X as unknow (no need to use Theta, the name of the variable is irrelevant.) Besides if you use theta you will get a syntax error.

### -2[3x-5 (2x-3)]=3x-8 how do I do the brackets and the equal sign in this equation? When I try to use the regular = sign in the bottom right I get a syntax error?

Use the other = sign obtained by pressing [ALPHA][CALC]. You also use the[ALPHA] key before entering X,Y,A,B,C.D variables.

The = sign at the bottom that gave you syntax errors is in fact an EXECUTE command. It used to be marked [EXE] on Casio calculators

### Graphing syntax error

To draw graphs.
1. Turn calculator ON (isn't that obvious?)
2. If you see no icons, press [MENU]
3. Use arrow to move focus on GRAPH and press [EXE]
4. By default, the graph type is Y=
5. Enter your equation on line Y1=, use the [X,theta,T] key to enter the X-variable
6. Press [EXE] when finished entering a function.
7. Enter other functions if you want.
8. When done, press [F6:Draw].
9. If you do not see a big portion of the curve you can press [SHIFT] [F2:Zoom] and select [F5:Auto]
I am enclosing screen captures. The screens you see may not look exactly as on the FX-9750G, but all menu commands you have to execute are accessed by the same key sequences.

This last one is obtained with the Zoom: Auto

### Can you correct my error message? command line option SYNTAX ERROR I get this message when I try to open a pps file. I have Microsoft Power Point installed on the computer. Thea.

In computer science a syntax error ( IPA: /ˈsɪntæks ɛrə(ɹ)/ ) refers to an error in the syntax of a sequence of characters or tokens that is intended to be written in a particular programming language.
For compiled languages syntax errors occur strictly at compile-time. A program will not compile until all syntax errors are corrected. For interpreted languages however syntax errors cannot be detected until runtime and it is not necessarily simple to differentiate a syntax error from a semantic error.
A syntax error may also occur when an invalid equation is entered into a calculator. This can be caused, for instance, by opening brackets without closing them, or less commonly, entering several decimal points in one number.
