M calculus teacher told me that I needed to disable plots. I did a statistics problem involving plots. And I have cleared the plots. However, now, when I enter a function in the y=editor an error appears. It says error, undefined variable. I hit enter. Then home screnn comes up and asks me to define it.

If some of the lists are missing press the STAT button then select SetUpEditor and ENTER to restore all of them (without data, of course.)

If the statistical plots are turned OFF you can turn one of them back ON again. Press SHIFT Y1= to access STAT PLOTS. Press 4:Plots Off. A good habit to avoid problems. After you turn all plots OFF, you must turn one of them ON if you intend to draw statistical graphs. You can for example Turn Plot1 ON.

Press SHIFT 0 to enter catalog. Press x^-1 key to jump to the first command that starts with D.

Scroll down to reach DiagnosticsON, highlight it and press ENTER then ENTER.

You have to turn all statistical plots OFF before you draw function graphs. Press [2nd][Y=] to open the statistical plot configuration screen. Press [4:PlotsOFF] and then [ENTER]. When calculator answers DONE you are ready to draw function plots.

I believe that you get the error message not when you type anything in Y= editor, but after you hit the {GRAPH] button. Anyway this is due to the fact that one of your statistical plots are active.

If you got the message while trying to draw a graph (that is your situation)

To Clear the lists:

** Ram Cleared **message.

When the RAM is cleared, the calculator is reset. The calculator resets itself after a battery change.

If you got the message while trying to draw a graph (that is your situation)

- Press [2nd][Y=] (STAT PLOT)
- Choose option [4:PlotsOff][ENTER]. Screen displays Done

To Clear the lists:

- Press [2nd][0] (CATALOG)
- Press [PGRM] (C) to jump to first command that starts with c.
- Use arrow to scroll down to
**ClrAllLists,**s**elect it [ENTER]** - Calculator displays
**Done** - Start the new problem.

What happened when you tried going to PlotsOff. Did you actually execute the command?

If you executed that command and cannot graph then for some reason you are feeding lists or matrices as arguments to the functions you want to draw.

By the way are you drawing STATISTICAL GRAPHS or FUNCTION GRAPHS?

If you are drawing statistical graphs and you executed the PlotsOff command, it is normal you will not be able to graph because PlotsOff turns OFF the statistical graphs.

Here are a few things you can do:

You're probably trying to graph a function that does not involve stat plot features. You can correct this by turning off the stat plot features. Press "2ND" "STAT PLOT" and then select 4:PlotsOff.

If the message appears when you try to graph functions deactivate the
statistical plots. To do so:

Press [2nd][Y=] to access (STAT PLOTs)

Select [4:PlotsOff] then [ENTER]

That should solve your problem. Post a comment to this thread if you still have trouble graphing.

If the message appears in another context, it sure would help knowing the context of the error.

You must deactivate the statistical plots. If you do statistical graphs, the graphing is reconfigured in a way that happens to be incompatible with regular fuction graphs.

- To deactivate the statistical plots.
- Press [2nd][Y=] to access the (STAT PLOT) menu.
- Press [4:PlotsOff][ENTER].
- Calculator displays Done.
- You are ready to draw the function graphs.

Hello,

**Turn the satistical plots OFF**

Press [2nd][Y=] (STATPLOT). Select or enter 4: to execute the command [PlotsOff] [ENTER]

**Clear the lists (statistical lists)**

Press [2nd][0] (Catalog]. Press [PGRM] C. The cursor jumps to the first command in catalog that starts with C (The greek letters in names do not matter). Scroll down a bit to reach the command [ClrAllLists]. Select it and press [ENTER].

**Try your graphs again**.

If you still have problems, just**reset the RAM**:

Press [2nd][+] (MEM). Press 7 to select [Reset] then [1:All Ram][2:Reset]. Press [Clear] to erase the Ram Cleard message.

Now you should be able to draw the graphs.

Hope it helps.

I am trying to graph x^2 and it is giveing me an error message that states undefined variable.

but the answer you provided still does not work. It displays an error"syntax" and does not plot the graph.
