Question about Texas Instruments TI-89 Calculator

For example when I input:

d(x^2,x)

it outputs

"2."

instead of the expected 2x

also, if I integrate:

S(x,x)

it outputs

".5"

instead of x^2/2

What you do is go to the home screen and hit f6 and hit 'clear a-z' that will clear all variables from being numeric variables.

Probably a value stored in the "x" variable (guessing x=1)

try the following, type or look for the "Define" function: Define X=X and see what happens, also try Cleaning the variables "F6>cleanup, etc" as a last resource do factory reset, but first archive your important files (not very recomended as some of them may contain the variable's value and just not solve this)

deSolve( ) solves differential equations. The general syntax is deSolve(1stOR2ndOrderODE, Var, depVar). The first argument must be a first order or second order differential equation, the second argument is the independent variable, and the third is the dependent variable (the name of the function you are trying to obtain.)

Your command does not have a differential equation, and it does not have the dependent variable.

Your command does not have a differential equation, and it does not have the dependent variable.

Here it is

The syntax of the command is

where function is the expression you are differentiating

x is the value of variable x at which you are evaluating the derivative, and tol is the tolerance (the error) you are willing to tolerate in the result.

If you do not want to specify a tolerance just omit the last comma and tol.

To enter the command d/dx you use key sequence [SHIFT][Integral]

To enter the symbol x in the expression you press [ALPHA][ ) ]

To enter a comma you use [SHIFT] [ ) ]

To enter a power of 10 in the tolerance use [x10^X] key

Example : Calculate

The key sequence is as follows

[SHIFT] [Integral] 3 [ALPHA] [ ) ] [X^2] [-] 5 [ALPHA] [ ) ] +2 [SHIFT] [ ) ] 2 [SHIFT] [ ) ] 1 [x10^X] [(-)] 12 ) [=]

DO NOT confuse [SHIFT] [ ) ] which enters the comma and [ALPHA] [ ) ] which enters the variable X.

The syntax of the command is

where function is the expression you are differentiating

x is the value of variable x at which you are evaluating the derivative, and tol is the tolerance (the error) you are willing to tolerate in the result.

If you do not want to specify a tolerance just omit the last comma and tol.

To enter the command d/dx you use key sequence [SHIFT][Integral]

To enter the symbol x in the expression you press [ALPHA][ ) ]

To enter a comma you use [SHIFT] [ ) ]

To enter a power of 10 in the tolerance use [x10^X] key

Example : Calculate

The key sequence is as follows

[SHIFT] [Integral] 3 [ALPHA] [ ) ] [X^2] [-] 5 [ALPHA] [ ) ] +2 [SHIFT] [ ) ] 2 [SHIFT] [ ) ] 1 [x10^X] [(-)] 12 ) [=]

DO NOT confuse [SHIFT] [ ) ] which enters the comma and [ALPHA] [ ) ] which enters the variable X.

The newer version of the OS 2.0.0.1188 is quite different from the initial version. It would be a good idea to upgrade the OS.

Back to your question. Since I upgraded my calculator, I am unable to illustrate the calculations with screen captures that are meaningful to you. If you do not mind I will show you how to calculate derivatives and integrals using OS Version 2.0.0.1188

In Calculator Mode

For the numerical integration

Select Calculus (see above)>Numerical Integration>ENTER.

Type in your integral using the template. Here is the procedure illustrated.

- Press the Menu button.
- Use down arrow to highlight 4:Calculus or just press 4
- Select 1:Numerical derivative at a point and press ENTER
- An entry screen opens where you can select the name of the independent variable (default is x, not X), the point where you want the derivative and whether you calculate the first or the second derivative.
- After you make your choices, you press ENTER and a template is displayed in calculator screen.
- All you have to do then is to specify the function you are differentiating.

Select Calculus (see above)>Numerical Integration>ENTER.

You have some numerical value stored in the variable x, which the calculator is plugging into the resultant equation.

You can clear individual variables with 2ND [VAR-LINK]. You can clear all one-character variables a-z with 2ND [F6] 1. You can initialize the machine for a new problem with 2ND [F6] 2.

If you want to get an answer like 1/2X for d/dx(X^2), you will have to
purchase a CAS calculator like Casio's Algebra FX-2 or Classpad. TI series calculators also have CAS.

However, you can calculate the numerical values of derivatives and integrals only.

To calculate the value of a proper integral:

**∫**xdx from 0 to 2, input as follows:

**∫**dx(X,0,2)

To calculate derivative at a point:

SHIFT+**∫**dx key X^2,3)

Display looks like this: d/dx(X^2,3).

However, you can calculate the numerical values of derivatives and integrals only.

To calculate the value of a proper integral:

- Press the 'ON' key;
- Press the Integral key ;
- Enter your expression (example X^2+X-3 etc);
- Press the 'comma' key after your expression;
- Input the first limit after comma, input comma again after first limit;
- Close brackets;
- Press the equals key, display may return after a while with the answer.

To calculate derivative at a point:

- Press Shift and then the integration key.
- Enter your function;
- Input comma;
- input the point at which you want to evaluate the derivative;
- Close bracket and press enter.

SHIFT+

Display looks like this: d/dx(X^2,3).

Hello,

This means that you are using a non-algebraic variable in an expression. I know, I am not even paraphrasing. Exemple: if you write 2 + johnQ, where johnQ is a table of data, a picture or a GDB, graphical data base object.

Here is an exemple where mat is a 2X2 matrix and mot is a table.

Hope it helps.
