Question about Texas Instruments TI-89 Calculator

1 Answer

Argument errors I have copied a program and a function neither of which will run.  I get an argument error for both.  I have check and double checked the code that I entered, so I am 99.9% sure that it isn't a typo.  This is the first time that I have ever programmed the 89.  I wasn't sure if there is a key to type in y1(x) (this is the line in the program that has the argument error) like in the 84.  In the function it asked for dx, and I assumed that I was to just type in those letters.  Any assistance you can give me would be great Denise

Graphing calculator argument error

The function you give as example in the additional information to your duplicate post is too simple to generate an Argument error. Maybe a syntax error but not an argument error.
Check what you enter on the line that defines the function. Do not confuse the minus sign - (for subtraction) and the change sign (negation sign) marked (-).
You can also reset your calculator by pressing the button on the back.

Error domain message

This means that you're invoking some function with an argument out of the function's domain. For example, the arcsine function requires an argument between -1 and +1, inclusive. If you try to take the arcsine of 2, you'll get this error.

If you require further assistance, please reply to this post and specify exactly what you're trying to do when you get this error.

Argument checking!

The calculator does have several error message concerning the argument. For the Request( command the syntax is
Request(Message, VarName)
What you type is stored as a string. It is only after you try to convert it to a value that the calculator looks at its content.
Here is an example where the variable VarName is x
Request ("Variable x", x)
I enter a complex number, manipulate it mildly with no apparent problem. However when I try to convert it to a numerical expression, and store it in the variable x, y, theta, I get a message Error non-real result.

Argument error

You provided an invalid argument to a function, such as a negative number to square root or a number greater than one to arcsine.

If you need further details, please specify the model of your Casio calculator and the exact function and the argument you provided.

Err domain

You tried to use an argument to a function that was not in the function's domain. For example, the arcsine function takes an argument from negative one to positive one. Trying to take the arcsine of 2 will generate a domain error.

If you need further assistance, please specify the exact function and argument that is generating this error.

Take for example a function y=f(x). What is inside the function is called its argument (what it is acting on). If you get that error it may mean that the argument type is wrong or that it is out of range. Here are two simple examples.
  1. A function requires a real number and you make it act on a complex number (wrong argument type).
  2. You know that the log () function must have a positive argument and you try to calculate say log(-2.5).
  3. Arc sine and arc cosine must have an argument in the closed interval [-1,1] but you call them with a value outside that interval.
  4. A function is defined with a list of arguments yet it is called with more items in the list or less items in the list.
Try displaying the values of the arguments before the function is called. This way you will see if you are passing it correct arguments.

When I attempt to use hyperbolic functions for complex numbers i get a domain error

Have you checked the calculator's manual to see if the calculator is able (natively) to handle functions of a complex argument. It is able to handle simple algebra with complex numbers, powers, roots, solving a polynomial equation.
For this calculator, the hyperbolic functions must have a real argument otherwise you get a error. But just to make sure, try the exponential function with i (imaginary unit) as argument. If it comes back with a domain error you have your answer.

Error 07

Error 07 is Syntax Error. From the manual: "You entered a value; look for misplaced functions, arguments, parentheses, or commas; check the syntax description in the A to Z reference."

If you can't find and fix the error, could you post the expression producing the error?
