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?

HOW TO FIND CUBE ROOT

There is a way to do it. I believe you go into "complex" or "math" buttons. These buttons are yellow on the calculator. Therefore, to access them you must hit "2nd" then the button.

Better yet, you can also get around this dilemma another way. You can enter "the cubed root of x" by raising x to 1/3.

For example the cubed root of x = x^(1/3). It is best to place parentheses around 1/3 so the calculator knows exactly what you mean.

Another example, the "cubed root of (x + 1)" can be entered by:
(x+1)^(1/3) Note the parenteses around both (x+1) and (1/3). This applies if the radical cover both "x" and "1".

Hope this helps.

I have a TI-86, whenever i input - it shows Ans- and then it show that is an error. how can i fix it.

The - key is for subtraction, an operation that needs two numbers. If you press - as the first key on a line, the calculator assumes you want to subtract something from the previous answer, Ans. If you want to enter a negative number, use the (-) key on the bottom row of the keyboard, just to the left of the Enter key.

How do I find the cube root button on my TI- 86

Hello,
There is a relation between roots and fractionary powers.

2nd root (square root) of X = X^(1/2) power 1/2
3rd root (cubic root) of X = X^(1/3) power 1/3
4th root of X = X^(1/4)
...
n-th root of X = X^(1/n)

Use the raise to arbitrary power key labeled as a caret [^] or [X to the y] or [Y to the x]
Hope it helps.

Reduce the fraction 83/360

83/360 is already reduced to lowest terms since 83 and 360 have no factors in common (other than 1).

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 c3b67db6-adc8-4b0c-8e71-dc94a9bdbeb0.png eb28a330-c2e9-4879-857f-1e41bfe8515a.png
