**Dimension** error meaning that a list or matrix index is not valid. For example, if the list {1,2,3,4} is stored in L1 then L1[5] is a dimension error because L1 only contains four elements. Finally, it is easy to solving your problem. See captured images

If you're in the MATHPRINT mode, press

2ND [COS^-1] ( 8 - 3 2ND [sqrt] 2 1 right-arrow ) / 2 5 ENTER

If you're in the CLASSIC mode, press

2ND [COS^-1] ( 8 - 3 2ND [sqrt] 2 1 ) ) / 2 5 ENTER

In either case you should get an answer of about 103.

You may get**
Memory Error** when you try to access an archived variables. From the other hand
**Memory Error** message is displayed if there is not enough free RAM to access the
archived variables. For correcting **Memory Error** message use the **2ND** then **MEM** to check RAM free size and **2ND** then
**VAR-LINK** to determine the size of the archived variables that you want to
access. As the third step for correcting this problem deleting unnecessary variable
from RAM and archiving large variables or programs. By the definition, the RAM
free size must be larger than the archived variables

I do not know the program you installed, so I will skip the part.

As to the derivative of the sine function, your result is correct if the angle unit is degree.

d(sin(x))/dx = cos(x) is true only if the angle unit is the radian. In degrees, you would have a factor Pi/180 which is 0.174532925. I suggest you consult a calculus book to understand where that factor comes from.

Having gone over a month with no response, I assume this is no longer a problem.

I have answered many questions asked by teachers and professors, and very few, if any, deigned to rate the posts. Why do I set myself up for yet another disappointment: I just like to help.

Anyway, the most common source of errors with computation of trigonometric functions is the angle unit. On Ti 83/84Plus (SE) calculators there are two angle units: the degree and the radian.

To verify which angle unit is set as default on a calculator, press MODE. You will see the following screen. The relevant line is the 3rd. On the screen RADIAN is highlighted, meaning that all angle values you feed to trigonometric functions are interpreted as radian measures.

Similarly, all values returned by inverse trigonometric functions are in radians.

I do not know what grades you teach, but if you are doing any differential calculus, the only appropriate unit is the radian. Only for the radian unit is the derivative of sin(x) equal to -cos(x). For the degree, you must introduce a factor to adjust (as a change of variable).

Set all your calculators to use the angle unit you are using in your teaching, and there will be no unexpected results.

Not sure if TI-89 mode keys are the same, but here's the solution for that calculator:

1. Hit the mode key

2. Hit F3 to get tot Exact/Approx (might be different for 89T).

3. Set it to Exact.

4. Take a look at T-89 manual pages 327, 328, 329.

Nice of TI to NOT include that in the manual, huh?
