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

### Graph and trace buttons don't work

This is probably because you have the stat plot on. You would need to go to y= and then go to the top where it says stat plot 1 and un highlight it if it is highligted. That should fix your problem.

â€¢ Select 4: PlotsOff.
â€¢ Press [ENTER].
â€¢ Try graphing a function like y = x^4-3x^3+6x-1
