Matrix multiplication is defined only when the width of the first matrix is equal to the height of the second. You can multiply a 2x2 matrix by a 1x2 matrix or multiply a 2x1 matrix by a 2x2 matrix, but you cannot multiply a 2x2 matrix by a 2x1 matrix.

### How do you square on a ti 89 titanium

One way is to multiply the quantity by itself.

Another is to raise it to the second power using ^ (just above the divide key).

You can also take it's logarithm, double it, then take the antilog :-)

### Matrix/scalar

Sorry, but your matrices do not make sense.If you multiply a matrix by a scalar the resulting (product) matrix has exactly the same structure as the one you multiplied : (mXn) times a yields another (mXn) matrix.
Be it as it may, when you multiply a matrix by a scalar, you obtain the product by multiplying every element of the original matrix by the scalar.

Here is a screen capture showing the multiplication of a 2X2 matrix by a scalar.

Note: I have noticed that screen captures I insert in my answers are sometimes deleted (by FixYa?). So if you do not see a picture it has nothing to do with me.

### I am dividing a 3*1 matrix with a 3*3 matrix with numbers in polar format and it gives me the error data type error.

You'll get the same error if you try to divide two matrices with real numbers. The TI-89 doesn't allow you to divide a matrix by another. However, you can multiply a matrix by the reciprocal of the other.

For example, to calculate A/B, calculate instead A*B^-1 . Makes sure you use the (-) key just to the right of the decimal point key to put in the negative sign before the "1".

Hi kelsers,

You need to re-install your calculator's OS. After this process your Ti 89 Titanium will operate properly. If you do the process below make sure you use new batteries.

Warning!!! If you do this procedure make sure that your computer and, calculator are connect. Use Ti Connect software and, make sure you can install the OS on the calculator without any interruption. At any time even at the very beginning of this process, if your computer or, calculator gets interrupted or you have a power failure during the installation of the OS, your calculator will be destroyed. So not attempt this procedure during a thunder storm.

You can use the Ti OS Downloader but, you will have no idea what OS is stored by the Ti OS Downloader. So, I suggest following my instructions and, installing the newest Ti 89 Titanium OS 3.10v.

Procedure to installing the newest Ti 89 Titanium OS 3.10v.

Link your computer and calculator with the USB cable or, Direct Black Link cable that came with the calculator.

Remove one of the AAA batteries. Press and hold the [APPS] key, and while holding the [APPS] key, replace the battery and turn the unit on. On the older TI-89 you should see "Press I to install code...", and you should press the [9] key to continue. But, on your Ti 89 titanium it should say, "Waiting to receive..." or, "Waiting to received OS...". Now you need to follow the instructions in the paragraph below to restore the calculator's operating system.

Next, drag the Ti 89 Titanium OS 3.10v. that you copied earlier to "My Documents \ My TI Data \ Downloads" out of that folder and, drop it in the "Ti Connect" icon on the desktop. Next the OS Downloader Warning will pop-up. Click, "OK" to continue and, the new OS will begin to install. The Ti Device window should pop up and, click on to the port where your Ti 89 Titanium is located, USB1 cable or Direct Black COM1. Just click, "Select" and, the OS will continue to download. Upon completion the newest Ti 89 Titanium OS 3.01v. will be installed.

### When I turn the switch on, ti-89 titanium does not turn on.

If you connect calculator to computer using Ti connect device explorer you might be able to see what files are on the calculator. I don't know if you downloaded from the web but, 3rd party programs and shells tent to miss up the calculator. This would able you to delete out possible problems which could be re installed later.

### Trying to get the inverse of a matrix

Hello,

The error may be due to the key you used to signifie inverse. It says in the manual that you should use the key x^-1 not the one used to input general powers.
Here is screen capture from the Appendix to the manual. The picture shows the sequence of keys to press to obtain the inverse of a 2x2 matrix. It is taken from page 41 of Appendix

The matrix used in the exemple is
a_11=2 a_12=1 a_21=1 a_22=2
