When you put in -x+3 for Y1, did you use the (-) key or the - key?

Try rewriting your equations in the equivalent forms that follow.
Y1=3-X
Y2=(1-X)/3

If you do not get a syntax error it means that you were not using the correct minus sign.
If the - is the first symbol after the equal sign you must use negation (-) or change sign key.
Similarly, after the division / key you must use the negation or change sign (-)

### When I try to enter a simple equation and graph it, I get error 07 message instead of graph.

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

### When trying to write simple graph lie Y=x+3 i get err: DIM MISMATCH QUIT

Dimension mismatch error occurs when arguments are not with same dimensions. Two or more arguments must be of the same dimension. For example, [1,2]+[1,2,3] is a dimension mismatch because the matrices contain a different number of elements. By the way, it it very easy to resolving your problem with graphing linear function.

### My TI 84 plus silver: whenever I push the graph button the message ERR: Syntax 1:quit 2: goto appear on screen please help

Press the Y= button.

There are several possibilities:

1) Scroll through all equations, Y1 through Y9 and Y0. Make sure they are cleared.
2) The equation you typed in is not entered correctly.
3) Make sure Plot 1, Plot 2, and Plot 3 are NOT highlighted.

### I also have Err: Syntax when i try to graph and i think thats because i use the regular MINUS but how do i use this '(-)' minus??

Simply press the (-) key before entering a negative number, in the same place you see the negative sign in print.

For example, to multiply 3 by -4, press 3 x (-) 4 ENTER

Press the 2nd Button then the ZOOM button. Make sure that AxesOn is highlighted. If not, move your cursor down until you on AxesOn and press ENTER.

If AxesOn is highlighted, then it is probably your window. Press ZOOM, then 6.
