Question about Texas Instruments TI-84 Plus Calculator

Err: bound When I try to graph and find my intercepts, my calc will not go past the part where it says "second curve?" also when i try to use the calc feature to find my intercepts it says "err:bound"...i have not changed anything since the last time I used my calc a month or so ago and I did not have any problem completing these tasks previously...

You may be making a confusion between intercepts and intersections. Intercepts are crossing of the axes. Intersections are between two curves: You need to have two curves graphed. You choose the first curve by selecting it (Up or Down Key), and then the second one.

SOURCE: err: no sign chng

When you get the sign change error it is either that you have mixed up the left bound and the right bound or that you are marking the left and the right bound both above the x-axis or both below the x-axis. That's why you get the sign change error. Your range values must have different signs.

SOURCE: When graphing says ERR: INVALID DIM 1:Quit

You have two lists that don't agree in length.

Solution 1 (easy)

Press [y=] and look at the top line - one of your Plots is highlighted.
Move the arrow to the highlighted one, press enter to get it un-highlighted.

Solution 2 (permanent)

Press [STAT] - EDIT: [1] to edit your lists. Go to the bottom of the lists and see which one is the longest. Delete (DELETE, not clear) the "extra" entries in the longest list until all lists are the same length.

SOURCE: WHen trying to graph anything, ERR: INVALID DIM

Hello,
The easiest and quickest way to start graphing is to reset the RAM. Press [2nd][MEM][7:Reset][1:All Ram][2:Reset], then [CLEAR] to clear the RAM Cleared Message and go to the main screen.
Hope it helps.

When I try to find Intercept on my graph I : [2nd]Trace [Enter] (for first curve) [Enter] (for second curve) but nothing happens. It still asks me for second curve. I move the point to diffrent...


There seems to be a confusion between two terms: intersection of two curves and y-intercept, or x-intercept.
When you press [2nd][TRACE] you are accessing the CALCulations menu for the graphics. The [1:calculate ] sub-menu gives the value of y for a given value of x. The first curve taken is the one in Y1=. If you want to find the value of y on a second curve for the same value of x, you use the Up Arrow or Down Arrow. (Use Up Arrow or Down Arrow to cycle through the curves.)
The sub-menu [5:Intersect] allows you to find a point where two curves intersect (cut one another). The calculator starts on the first curve (Y1=) and asks you to select the second curve. At this point you use the Up or Down arrow to jump tho the next curve. Then you will be asked for a guess.
First, know what you want and do not confuse interCEPT with interSECT

Why wont my calulator let me enter a second guess when finding the intercept on my graph?


To find the intersection (read interSECTION) of two curves you are prompted once for an initial guess. If the calculator does not find the intersection point , or if there are more than one intersection points, you have to restart the procedure.
For your information, the interCEPT (or y-intercept) is the ordinate of the point where a curve cuts the y-axis. It is easy to mistake one word for the other. They are not synonymous.

When i click graph it says "ERR: INVALID DIM" i noticed under "y equal" mode that plot 1 and plot 2 are highlighted. how do i fix this, i need to be able to graph. TI-84 plus calc.


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.

Please help plotting graphs on TI-83 plus


I believe I already showed you with a profusion of details how to graph functions on the calculator. It would very kind of you to refer to the post that answered your question, so as not to make us answer it all over again. Much appreciated.

Read the following to use the intersection function.
  1. You draw two or more graphs.
  2. After the graphs are displayed, press [2nd][TRACE] to access the (CALC)ulate menu.
  3. Select [5:Interesct]
  4. You will be prompted for a first curve: the equation of the curve will be displayed at the top left corner of the screen. If it is one the intersecting curves, press [ENTER]
  5. You will be prompted for the second curve. (You can move from one curve to another by pressing the UpArrow or DownArrow).
  6. After two curves are selected, you will be prompted for a guess for the X-value of an intersection point: you can use the keypad to enter a guess or use the left or right arrow to move the cursor towards a point of your choosing (if there are more than one point).
  7. After a short while the calculator gives you a solution.
  8. If it fails, you must make a better guess.

Here are some screen captures

My calc doesn't graph. Once I click graph it says ERR: Invalid Dim, and my only option is Quit. What do I 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 this isn't the problem, try posting the function(s) you're trying to graph, as well as the window settings.

Solve for x-intercept and graph:f(x)= -x^2 + 2x - 1


Graph the function then use the trace function to locate the point(s) where two curves intersect. In your case one of the curves is the X-AXIS.

See the screen capture to learn how to use the trace functionality.

My TI 84 Plus Caluclator


Hello,
The function Intersect from the CALCULATE menu finf the coordinates of a point at which two or more curves intersect.
To use it:
1. Draw the functions.
7036100.jpg
2. Press [2nd][CALC][5:Intersect]

4c21f92.jpg

The cursor is on one of the curves. Read the equation top of the screen. If it is one of the curves you want press [ENTER]. The cursor jumps to another curve (in this case the only other curve).
f75e725.jpg
Read the equation on top of the screen to verify thst it is the correct one. Press [ENTER]. The calculator asks asks for a guess of the coordinates of the intersection point.

As the intersection point is to the left of the current cursor position, use the left arrow to move cursor closer to the point.

d22f78b.jpg
Press [ENTER], and wait for the solution. Here it is.

In your question you talk about y intercept. If you want to calculate the ordinate of the point where a curve intersects the Y-axis, it is more efficient to use the [2nd][CAL][1:Value] selection.
0a11a73.jpg
You enter X=0 and press [ENTER]. The cursor jumps on the first curve (Y1=) an gives you the y-intercept.
7420d8f.jpg
Notice the position of cursor on graph. The y-value at the bottom is its ordinate.
To get the y-intercept of the second curve, leave the cursor on y axis and press the DownArrow. Cursor jumps to tthe second curve.
Since the X=0 is still stored, the value of y is displayed directly.

How do I use stat plot to graph a set of points?


Hello,
1.Press [MODE], scroll to set Function graphing mode.
2.Press [STAT] [5:SetUpEditor], command is pasted in home screen. Press [ENTER]. Screen displays Done. This clears old values in lists

3. Press [STAT][1:Edit] to enter data.
Press [ENTER] after each number. Cursor moves to next row. After finishing the data of Listt L1, use arrow right and UP to the head of list L2. Enter the values in list L2. Press Enter after last element.

4. Press [Y=] to display Y= editor. Clear function Y1 and all functions or remove highlight from the = in Y2, Y3, etc.
5.Press [2nd][STATPLOT]1 to select 1:Plot1

The blinking cursor on ON means graph will be drawn. Type chosen is Scatter plot. Mark chosen is a dot.

Press [ZOOM][9:ZoomStat]

If you think that the curve look like a straight line you can try to do a linear regression.
Press [STAT] Arrow right to highlight [CALC]
Select [4: LinReg(ax+b)]
