Documentation Conventions
In the body of this guidebook, TI84 Plus refers to the TI84 Plus Silver Edition. Sometimes, as in Chapter 19, the full name TI84 Plus Silver Edition is used to distinguish it from the TI84 Plus. All the instructions and examples in this guidebook also work for the TI84 Plus. All the functions of the TI84 Plus Silver Edition and the TI84 Plus are the same. The two graphing calculators differ only in available RAM memory, interchangeable faceplates, and Flash application ROM memory. TI84 Plus Keyboard
Generally, the keyboard is divided into these zones: graphing keys, editing keys, advanced function keys, and scientific calculator keys. Keyboard Zones
Graphing — Graphing keys access the interactive graphing features. Editing — Editing keys allow you to edit expressions and values. Advanced — Advanced function keys display menus that access the advanced functions.
Chapter 1: Operating the TI84 Plus Silver Edition 1 Scientific — Scientific calculator keys access the capabilities of a standard scientific calculator. TI84 Plus Graphing Keys Editing Keys Advanced Function Keys Scientific Calculator Keys Chapter 1: Operating the TI84 Plus Silver Edition 2 Using the Color.Coded Keyboard The keys on the TI84 Plus are colorcoded to help you easily locate the key you need. The light colored keys are the number keys. The light gray keys along the right side of the keyboard are the common math functions. The light gray keys across the top set up and display graphs. The Œ key with the purple lettering provides access to applications such as the Inequality Graphing application. The primary function of each key is printed on the keys. For example, when you press , the MATH menu is displayed. and Keys Using the y and ƒ Keys The secondary function of each key is printed in blue above the key. When you press the blue y key, the character, abbreviation, or word printed in blue above the other keys becomes active for the next keystroke. For example, when you press y and then , the TEST menu is displayed. This guidebook describes this keystroke combination as y :. The alpha function of each key is printed in green above the key. When you press the green ƒ key, the alpha character printed in green above the other keys becomes active for the next keystroke. For example, when you press ƒ and then , the letter A is entered. This guidebook describes this keystroke combination as ƒ [A]. Chapter 1: Operating the TI84 Plus Silver Edition 3 The y key accesses the second function printed in blue above each key. The ƒ key accesses the alpha function printed in green above each key. Turning On and Turning Off the TI84 Plus
Turning On the Graphing Calculator To turn on the TI84 Plus, press É. • If you previously had turned off the graphing calculator by pressing y M, the TI84 Plus displays the home screen as it was when you last used it and clears any error. Chapter 1: Operating the TI84 Plus Silver Edition 4 • If Automatic Power Down™ (APD™) had previously turned off the graphing calculator, the TI84 Plus will return exactly as you left it, including the display, cursor, and any error. If the TI84 Plus is turned off and connected to another graphing calculator or personal computer, any communication activity will “wake up” the TI84 Plus. • To prolong the life of the batteries, APD turns off the TI84 Plus automatically after about five minutes without any activity. Turning Off the Graphing Calculator To turn off the TI84 Plus manually, press y M. • • All settings and memory contents are retained by Constant Memory™. Any error condition is cleared. Batteries The TI84 Plus uses five batteries: four AAA alkaline batteries and one SR44SW or 303 silver oxide backup battery. The silver oxide battery provides auxiliary power to retain memory while you replace the AAA batteries. To replace batteries without losing any information stored in memory, follow the steps in Appendix C. Chapter 1: Operating the TI84 Plus Silver Edition 5 Setting the Display Contrast
Adjusting the Display Contrast You can adjust the display contrast to suit your viewing angle and lighting conditions. As you change the contrast setting, a number from 0 (lightest) to 9 (darkest) in the topright corner indicates the current level. You may not be able to see the number if contrast is too light or too dark.
Note: The TI84 Plus has 40 contrast settings, so each number 0 through 9 represents four settings. The TI84 Plus retains the contrast setting in memory when it is turned off.

Generally, the graphing calculator will continue to operate for one or two weeks after the lowbattery message is first displayed. After this period, the TI84 Plus will turn off automatically and the unit will not operate. Batteries must be replaced. All memory should be retained.
Note: The operating period following the first lowbattery message could be longer than two weeks if you use the graphing calculator infrequently. The Display
Types of Displays The TI84 Plus displays both text and graphs. Chapter 3 describes graphs. Chapter 9 describes how the TI84 Plus can display a horizontally or vertically split screen to show graphs and text simultaneously. Home Screen The home screen is the primary screen of the TI84 Plus. On this screen, enter instructions to execute and expressions to evaluate. The answers are displayed on the same screen.
Chapter 1: Operating the TI84 Plus Silver Edition 7 Displaying Entries and Answers When text is displayed, the TI84 Plus screen can display a maximum of 8 lines with a maximum of 16 characters per line. If all lines of the display are full, text scrolls off the top of the display. If an expression on the home screen, the Y= editor (Chapter 3), or the program editor (Chapter 16) is longer than one line, it wraps to the beginning of the next line. In numeric editors such as the window screen (Chapter 3), a long expression scrolls to the right and left. When an entry is executed on the home screen, the answer is displayed on the right side of the next line.
Entry Answer The mode settings control the way the TI84 Plus interprets expressions and displays answers. If an answer, such as a list or matrix, is too long to display entirely on one line, an ellipsis (...) is displayed to the right or left. Press ~ and  to display the answer.

What Is an Expression? An expression is a group of numbers, variables, functions and their arguments, or a combination of these elements. An expression evaluates to a single answer. On the TI84 Plus, you enter an expression in the same order as you would write it on paper. For example, pR2 is an expression. You can use an expression on the home screen to calculate an answer. In most places where a value is required, you can use an expression to enter a value. Entering an Expression To create an expression, you enter numbers, variables, and functions from the keyboard and menus. An expression is completed when you press Í, regardless of the cursor location. The entire expression is evaluated according to Equation Operating System (EOS™) rules, and the answer is displayed. Most TI84 Plus functions and operations are symbols comprising several characters. You must enter the symbol from the keyboard or a menu; do not spell it out. For example, to calculate the log of 45, you must press « 45. Do not enter the letters L, O, and G. If you enter LOG, the TI84 Plus interprets the entry as implied multiplication of the variables L, O, and G. Chapter 1: Operating the TI84 Plus Silver Edition 15 Calculate 3.76 P (L7.9 + ‡5) + 2 log 45.
3 Ë 76 ¥ £ Ì 7 Ë 9 Ã y C 5 ¤ ¤ Ã 2 « 45 ¤ Í Multiple Entries on a Line To enter two or more expressions or instructions on a line, separate them with colons (ƒ [:]). All instructions are stored together in last entry (ENTRY). Entering a Number in Scientific Notation To enter a number in scientific notation, follow these steps. 1. Enter the part of the number that precedes the exponent. This value can be an expression. 2. Press y D. â is pasted to the cursor location. 3. If the exponent is negative, press Ì, and then enter the exponent, which can be one or two digits. Chapter 1: Operating the TI84 Plus Silver Edition 16 When you enter a number in scientific notation, the TI84 Plus does not automatically display answers in scientific or engineering notation. The mode settings and the size of the number determine the display format. Functions A function returns a value. For example, ÷, L, +, ‡(, and log( are the functions in the example on the previous page. In general, the first letter of each function is lowercase on the TI84 Plus. Most functions take at least one argument, as indicated by an open parenthesis ( ( ) following the name. For example, sin( requires one argument, sin(value). Instructions An instruction initiates an action. For example, ClrDraw is an instruction that clears any drawn elements from a graph. Instructions cannot be used in expressions. In general, the first letter of each instruction name is uppercase. Some instructions take more than one argument, as indicated by an open parenthesis ( ( ) at the end of the name. For example, Circle( requires three arguments, Circle(X,Y,radius). Interrupting a Calculation To interrupt a calculation or graph in progress, which is indicated by the busy indicator, press É. When you interrupt a calculation, a menu is displayed. • • To return to the home screen, select 1:Quit. To go to the location of the interruption, select 2:Goto.

Normal, Sci, Eng Notation modes only affect the way an answer is displayed on the home screen. Numeric answers can be displayed with up to 10 digits and a twodigit exponent. You can enter a number in any format.
Normal notation mode is the usual way we express numbers, with digits to the left and right of the decimal, as in 12345.67. Sci (scientific) notation mode expresses numbers in two parts. The significant digits display with one digit to the left of the decimal. The appropriate power of 10 displays to the right of å, as in 1.234567â4.
Eng (engineering) notation mode is similar to scientific notation. However, the number can have one, two, or three digits before the decimal; and the powerof10 exponent is a multiple of three, as in 12.34567â3. Note: If you select Normal notation, but the answer cannot display in 10 digits (or the absolute value is less than .001), the TI84 Plus expresses the answer in scientific notation. Chapter 1: Operating the TI84 Plus Silver Edition 21 Float, 0123456789
Float (floating) decimal mode displays up to 10 digits, plus the sign and decimal. 0123456789 (fixed) decimal mode specifies the number of digits (0 through 9) to display to the right of the decimal. Place the cursor on the desired number of decimal digits, and then press Í. The decimal setting applies to Normal, Sci, and Eng notation modes. The decimal setting applies to these numbers: • • • • • An answer displayed on the home screen Coordinates on a graph (Chapters 3, 4, 5, and 6) The Tangent( DRAW instruction equation of the line, x, and dy/dx values (Chapter 8) Results of CALCULATE operations (Chapters 3, 4, 5, and 6) The regression equation stored after the execution of a regression model (Chapter 12) Radian, Degree Angle modes control how the TI84 Plus interprets angle values in trigonometric functions and polar/rectangular conversions.
Radian mode interprets angle values as radians. Answers display in radians. Degree mode interprets angle values as degrees. Answers display in degrees. Chapter 1: Operating the TI84 Plus Silver Edition 22 Func, Par, Pol, Seq Graphing modes define the graphing parameters. Chapters 3, 4, 5, and 6 describe these modes in detail.
Func (function) graphing mode plots functions, where Y is a function of X (Chapter 3). Par (parametric) graphing mode plots relations, where X and Y are functions of T (Chapter 4).
Pol (polar) graphing mode plots functions, where r is a function of q (Chapter 5). Seq (sequence) graphing mode plots sequences (Chapter 6). Connected, Dot
Connected plotting mode draws a line connecting each point calculated for the selected functions.
Dot plotting mode plots only the calculated points of the selected functions. Sequential, Simul
Sequential graphingorder mode evaluates and plots one function completely before the next function is evaluated and plotted.
Simul (simultaneous) graphingorder mode evaluates and plots all selected functions for a single value of X and then evaluates and plots them for the next value of X. Chapter 1: Operating the TI84 Plus Silver Edition 23 Note: Regardless of which graphing mode is selected, the TI84 Plus will sequentially graph all stat plots before it graphs any functions. Real, a+bi, re^qi
Real mode does not display complex results unless complex numbers are entered as input. Two complex modes display complex results. • •
a+bi (rectangular complex mode) displays complex numbers in the form a+bi. re^qi (polar complex mode) displays complex numbers in the form re^qi. Full, Horiz, GT
Full screen mode uses the entire screen to display a graph or edit screen. Each splitscreen mode displays two screens simultaneously. • •
Horiz (horizontal) mode displays the current graph on the top half of the screen; it displays the home screen or an editor on the bottom half (Chapter 9).
GT (graphtable) mode displays the current graph on the left half of the screen; it displays the table screen on the right half (Chapter 9). Set Clock Use the clock to set the time, date, and clock display formats. Chapter 1: Operating the TI84 Plus Silver Edition 24 Using TI84 Plus Variable Names
Variables and Defined Items On the TI84 Plus you can enter and use several types of data, including real and complex numbers, matrices, lists, functions, stat plots, graph databases, graph pictures, and strings. The TI84 Plus uses assigned names for variables and other items saved in memory. For lists, you also can create your own fivecharacter names.

Programs have userdefined names and share memory with variables (Chapter 16). From the home screen or from a program, you can store to matrices (Chapter 10), lists (Chapter 11), strings (Chapter 15), system variables such as Xmax (Chapter 1), TblStart (Chapter 7), and all Y= functions (Chapters 3, 4, 5, and 6). From an editor, you can store to matrices, lists, and Y= functions (Chapter 3). From the home screen, a program, or an editor, you can store a value to a matrix element or a list element. You can use DRAW STO menu items to store and recall graph databases and pictures (Chapter 8). Although most variables can be archived, system variables including r, t, x, y, and q cannot be archived (Chapter 18)
Apps are independent applications.which are stored in Flash ROM. AppVars is a • • • • • variable holder used to store variables created by independent applications. You cannot edit or change variables in AppVars unless you do so through the application which created them. Chapter 1: Operating the TI84 Plus Silver Edition 26 Storing Variable Values
Storing Values in a Variable Values are stored to and recalled from memory using variable names. When an expression containing the name of a variable is evaluated, the value of the variable at that time is used.

Order of Evaluation The Equation Operating System (EOS) defines the order in which functions in expressions are entered and evaluated on the TI84 Plus. EOS lets you enter numbers and functions in a simple, straightforward sequence. EOS evaluates the functions in an expression in this order.
Order Number Function 1 2 Functions that precede the argument, such as ‡(, sin(, or log( Functions that are entered after the argument, such as 2, M1, !, ¡, r, and conversions Powers and roots, such as 2^5 or 5x‡32 Permutations (nPr) and combinations (nCr) Multiplication, implied multiplication, and division Addition and subtraction 3 4 5 6 Chapter 1: Operating the TI84 Plus Silver Edition 40 Order Number Function 7 8 9 Relational functions, such as > or Logic operator and Logic operators or and xor Note: Within a priority level, EOS evaluates functions from left to right. Calculations within parentheses are evaluated first. Implied Multiplication The TI84 Plus recognizes implied multiplication, so you need not press ¯ to express multiplication in all cases. For example, the TI84 Plus interprets 2p, 4sin(46), 5(1+2), and (2…5)7 as implied multiplication.
Note: TI84 Plus implied multiplication rules, although like the TI83, differ from those of the TI82. For example, the TI84 Plus evaluates 1à2X as (1à2)…X, while the TI82 evaluates 1à2X as 1à(2…X) (Chapter 2). Parentheses All calculations inside a pair of parentheses are completed first. For example, in the expression 4(1+2), EOS first evaluates the portion inside the parentheses, 1+2, and then multiplies the answer, 3, by 4. Chapter 1: Operating the TI84 Plus Silver Edition 41 You can omit the close parenthesis ( ) ) at the end of an expression. All open parenthetical elements are closed automatically at the end of an expression. This is also true for open parenthetical elements that precede the store or displayconversion instructions.
Note: An open parenthesis following a list name, matrix name, or Y= function name does not indicate implied multiplication. It specifies elements in the list (Chapter 11) or matrix (Chapter 10) and specifies a value for which to solve the Y= function. Negation To enter a negative number, use the negation key. Press Ì and then enter the number. On the TI84 Plus, negation is in the third level in the EOS hierarchy. Functions in the first level, such as squaring, are evaluated before negation. For example, MX2, evaluates to a negative number (or 0). Use parentheses to square a negative number. Note: Use the ¹ key for subtraction and the Ì key for negation. If you press ¹ to enter a negative number, as in 9 ¯ ¹ 7, or if you press Ì to indicate subtraction, as in 9 Ì 7, an error occurs. If you press ƒ A Ì ƒ B, it is interpreted as implied multiplication (A…MB). Chapter 1: Operating the TI84 Plus Silver Edition 42 Special Features of the TI84 Plus

Getting Started: Coin Flip
Getting Started is a fastpaced introduction. Read the chapter for details. Suppose you want to model flipping a fair coin 10 times. You want to track how many of those 10 coin flips result in heads. You want to perform this simulation 40 times. With a fair coin, the probability of a coin flip resulting in heads is 0.5 and the probability of a coin flip resulting in tails is 0.5. 1. Begin on the home screen. Press  to display the MATH PRB menu. Press 7 to select 7:randBin( (random Binomial). randBin( is pasted to the home screen. Press 10 to enter the number of coin flips. Press ¢. Press Ë 5 to enter the probability of heads. Press ¢. Press 40 to enter the number of simulations. Press ¤. 2. Press Í to evaluate the expression. A list of 40 elements is generated with the first 7 displayed. The list contains the count of heads resulting from each set of 10 coin flips. The list has 40 elements because this simulation was performed 40 times. In this example, the coin came up heads five times in the first set of 10 coin flips, five times in the second set of 10 coin flips, and so on. Chapter 2: Math, Angle, and Test Operations 51 3. Press ~ or  to view the additional counts in the list. Ellipses (...) indicate that the list continues beyond the screen. 4. Press ¿ y d Í to store the data to the list name L1. You then can use the data for another activity, such as plotting a histogram (Chapter 12).
Note: Since randBin( generates random numbers, your list elements may differ from those in the example. Keyboard Math Operations
Using Lists with Math Operations Math operations that are valid for lists return a list calculated element by element. If you use two lists in the same expression, they must be the same length. Chapter 2: Math, Angle, and Test Operations 52 Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division You can use + (addition, Ã), N (subtraction, ¹), … (multiplication, ¯), and à (division, ¥) with real and complex numbers, expressions, lists, and matrices. You cannot use à with matrices.
valueA+valueB valueA…valueB valueA N valueB valueA à valueB Trigonometric Functions You can use the trigonometric (trig) functions (sine, ˜; cosine, ™; and tangent, š) with real numbers, expressions, and lists. The current angle mode setting affects interpretation. For example, sin(30) in Radian mode returns L.9880316241; in Degree mode it returns .5.
sin(value) cos(value) tan(value) You can use the inverse trig functions (arcsine, y ?; arccosine, y @; and arctangent, y A) with real numbers, expressions, and lists. The current angle mode setting affects interpretation.
sinL1(value) cosL1(value) tanL1(value) Note: The trig functions do not operate on complex numbers. Chapter 2: Math, Angle, and Test Operations 53 Power, Square, Square Root You can use ^ (power, ›), 2 (square, ¡), and ‡( (square root, y C) with real and complex numbers, expressions, lists, and matrices. You cannot use ‡( with matrices.
value^power È value2 ‡(value) È Inverse You can use L1 (inverse, œ) with real and complex numbers, expressions, lists, and matrices. The multiplicative inverse is equivalent to the reciprocal, 1àx.
value1 log(, 10^(, ln( You can use log( (logarithm, «), 10^( (power of 10, y G), and ln( (natural log, µ) with real or complex numbers, expressions, and lists.
log(value) 10^(power) ln(value) Chapter 2: Math, Angle, and Test Operations 54 Exponential
e^( (exponential, y J) returns the constant e raised to a power. You can use e^( with real or complex numbers, expressions, and lists. e^(power) Constant
e (constant, y [e]) is stored as a constant on the TI84 Plus. Press y [e] to copy e to the cursor location. In calculations, the TI84 Plus uses 2.718281828459 for e. Negation M (negation, Ì) returns the negative of value. You can use M with real or complex numbers, expressions, lists, and matrices. Mvalue EOS™ rules (Chapter 1) determine when negation is evaluated. For example, LA2 returns a negative number, because squaring is evaluated before negation. Use parentheses to square a negated number, as in (LA)2. Chapter 2: Math, Angle, and Test Operations 55 Note: On the TI84 Plus, the negation symbol (M) is shorter and higher than the subtraction sign (N), which is displayed when you press ¹. Pi p (Pi, y B) is stored as a constant in the TI84 Plus. In calculations, the TI84 Plus uses 3.1415926535898 for p. Chapter 2: Math, Angle, and Test Operations 56 MATH Operations

fMin( (function minimum) and fMax( (function maximum) return the value at which the local minimum or local maximum value of expression with respect to variable occurs, between lower and upper values for variable. fMin( and fMax( are not valid in expression. The accuracy is controlled by tolerance (if not specified, the default is 1âL5). fMin(expression,variable,lower,upper[,tolerance]) fMax(expression,variable,lower,upper[,tolerance]) Note: In this guidebook, optional arguments and the commas that accompany them are enclosed in brackets ([ ]). Chapter 2: Math, Angle, and Test Operations 59 nDeriv(
nDeriv( (numerical derivative) returns an approximate derivative of expression with respect to variable, given the value at which to calculate the derivative and H (if not specified, the default is 1âL3). nDeriv( is valid only for real numbers. nDeriv(expression,variable,value[,H]) nDeriv( uses the symmetric difference quotient method, which approximates the numerical derivative value as the slope of the secant line through these points.
f( x + ε) – f( x – ε) f ′ ( x ) = 2ε As H becomes smaller, the approximation usually becomes more accurate. You can use nDeriv( once in expression. Because of the method used to calculate nDeriv(, the TI84 Plus can return a false derivative value at a nondifferentiable point. Chapter 2: Math, Angle, and Test Operations 60 fnInt(
fnInt( (function integral) returns the numerical integral (GaussKronrod method) of expression with respect to variable, given lower limit, upper limit, and a tolerance (if not specified, the default is 1âL5). fnInt( is valid only for real numbers. fnInt(expression,variable,lower,upper[,tolerance]) Note: To speed the drawing of integration graphs (when fnInt( is used in a Y= equation), increase the value of the Xres window variable before you press s. Using the Equation Solver
Solver
Solver displays the equation solver, in which you can solve for any variable in an equation. The equation is assumed to be equal to zero. Solver is valid only for real numbers. When you select Solver, one of two screens is displayed. • • The equation editor (see step 1 picture below) is displayed when the equation variable eqn is empty. The interactive solver editor is displayed when an equation is stored in eqn. Chapter 2: Math, Angle, and Test Operations 61 Entering an Expression in the Equation Solver To enter an expression in the equation solver, assuming that the variable eqn is empty, follow these steps. 1. Select 0:Solver from the MATH menu to display the equation editor. 2. Enter the expression in any of three ways. • • • Enter the expression directly into the equation solver. Paste a Y= variable name from the VARS YVARS menu to the equation solver. Press y K, paste a Y= variable name from the VARS YVARS menu, and press Í. The expression is pasted to the equation solver. The expression is stored to the variable eqn as you enter it. 3. Press Í or †. The interactive solver editor is displayed. • The equation stored in eqn is set equal to zero and displayed on the top line. Chapter 2: Math, Angle, and Test Operations 62 • • • Variables in the equation are listed in the order in which they appear in the equation. Any values stored to the listed variables also are displayed. The default lower and upper bounds appear in the last line of the editor (bound={L1â99,1â99}). A $ is displayed in the first column of the bottom line if the editor continues beyond the screen. Note: To use the solver to solve an equation such as K=.5MV2, enter eqn:0=KN.5MV2 in the equation editor. Entering and Editing Variable Values When you enter or edit a value for a variable in the interactive solver editor, the new value is stored in memory to that variable. You can enter an expression for a variable value. It is evaluated when you move to the next variable. Expressions must resolve to real numbers at each step during the iteration. You can store equations to any VARS YVARS variables, such as Y1 or r6, and then reference the variables in the equation. The interactive solver editor displays all variables of all Y= functions referenced in the equation. Chapter 2: Math, Angle, and Test Operations 63 Solving for a Variable in the Equation Solver To solve for a variable using the equation solver after an equation has been stored to eqn, follow these steps. 1. Select 0:Solver from the MATH menu to display the interactive solver editor, if not already displayed. 2. Enter or edit the value of each known variable. All variables, except the unknown variable, must contain a value. To move the cursor to the next variable, press Í or †. 3. Enter an initial guess for the variable for which you are solving. This is optional, but it may help find the solution more quickly. Also, for equations with multiple roots, the TI84 Plus will attempt to display the solution that is closest to your guess. Chapter 2: Math, Angle, and Test Operations 64 ( u pper + lower ) The default guess is calculated as  . 2 4. Edit bound={lower,upper}. lower and upper are the bounds between which the TI84 Plus searches for a solution. This is optional, but it may help find the solution more quickly. The default is bound={L1â99,1â99}. 5. Move the cursor to the variable for which you want to solve and press ƒ \. • The solution is displayed next to the variable for which you solved. A solid square in the first column marks the variable for which you solved and indicates that the equation is balanced. An ellipsis shows that the value continues beyond the screen.
Note: When a number continues beyond the screen, be sure to press ~ to scroll to the end of the number to see whether it ends with a negative or positive exponent. A very small number may appear to be a large number until you scroll right to see the exponent. • • The values of the variables are updated in memory.
leftNrt=diff is displayed in the last line of the editor. diff is the difference between the left and right sides of the equation. A solid square in the first column next to Chapter 2: Math, Angle, and Test Operations 65 leftNrt indicates that the equation has been evaluated at the new value of the variable for which you solved. Editing an Equation Stored to eqn To edit or replace an equation stored to eqn when the interactive equation solver is displayed, press } until the equation editor is displayed. Then edit the equation. Equations with Multiple Roots Some equations have more than one solution. You can enter a new initial guess or new bounds to look for additional solutions. Further Solutions After you solve for a variable, you can continue to explore solutions from the interactive solver editor. Edit the values of one or more variables. When you edit any variable value, the solid squares next to the previous solution and leftNrt=diff disappear. Move the cursor to the variable for which you now want to solve and press ƒ \. Controlling the Solution for Solver or solve( The TI84 Plus solves equations through an iterative process. To control that process, enter bounds that are relatively close to the solution and enter an initial guess within those bounds. This will help to find a solution more quickly. Also, it will define which solution you want for equations with multiple solutions. Chapter 2: Math, Angle, and Test Operations 66 Using solve( on the Home Screen or from a Program The function solve( is available only from CATALOG or from within a program. It returns a solution (root) of expression for variable, given an initial guess, and lower and upper bounds within which the solution is sought. The default for lower is L1â99. The default for upper is L1â99. solve( is valid only for real numbers.
solve(expression,variable,guess[,{lower,upper}]) expression is assumed equal to zero. The value of variable will not be updated in memory. guess may be a value or a list of two values. Values must be stored for every variable in expression, except variable, before expression is evaluated. lower and upper must be entered in list format.

ComplexNumber Modes The TI84 Plus displays complex numbers in rectangular form and polar form. To select a complexnumber mode, press z, and then select either of the two modes. • •
a+bi (rectangularcomplex mode) re^qi (polarcomplex mode) Chapter 2: Math, Angle, and Test Operations 72 On the TI84 Plus, complex numbers can be stored to variables. Also, complex numbers are valid list elements. In Real mode, complexnumber results return an error, unless you entered a complex number as input. For example, in Real mode ln(L1) returns an error; in a+bi mode ln(L1) returns an answer. Real mode
a+bi mode $ $ Entering Complex Numbers Complex numbers are stored in rectangular form, but you can enter a complex number in rectangular form or polar form, regardless of the mode setting. The components of complex numbers can be real numbers or expressions that evaluate to real numbers; expressions are evaluated when the command is executed. Note about Radian Versus Degree Mode Radian mode is recommended for complex number calculations. Internally, the TI84 Plus converts all entered trigonometric values to radians, but it does not convert values for exponential, logarithmic, or hyperbolic functions. Chapter 2: Math, Angle, and Test Operations 73 In degree mode, complex identities such as e^(iq) = cos(q) + i sin(q) are not generally true because the values for cos and sin are converted to radians, while those for e^() are not. For example, e^(i45) = cos(45) + i sin(45) is treated internally as e^(i45) = cos(p/4) + i sin(p/4). Complex identities are always true in radian mode. Interpreting Complex Results Complex numbers in results, including list elements, are displayed in either rectangular or polar form, as specified by the mode setting or by a display conversion instruction. In the example below, polarcomplex (re^qi) and Radian modes are set. RectangularComplex Mode Rectangularcomplex mode recognizes and displays a complex number in the form a+bi, where a is the real component, b is the imaginary component, and i is a constant equal to –1 . To enter a complex number in rectangular form, enter the value of a (real component), press Ã or ¹, enter the value of b (imaginary component), and press y V (constant).
real component(+ or N)imaginary component i Chapter 2: Math, Angle, and Test Operations 74 PolarComplex Mode Polarcomplex mode recognizes and displays a complex number in the form re^qi, where r is the magnitude, e is the base of the natural log, q is the angle, and i is a constant equal to –1 . To enter a complex number in polar form, enter the value of r (magnitude), press y J (exponential function), enter the value of q (angle), press y V (constant), and then press ¤.

The sequence is displayed at the top of the screen. The values for n (number of years), X (X=n, because n is plotted on the xaxis), and Y (tree count) are displayed at the bottom. When will the forest stabilize? With how many trees? Chapter 6: Sequence Graphing 153 Defining and Displaying Sequence Graphs
TI84 Plus Graphing Mode Similarities The steps for defining a sequence graph are similar to the steps for defining a function graph. Chapter 6 assumes that you are familiar with Chapter 3: Function Graphing. Chapter 6 details aspects of sequence graphing that differ from function graphing. Setting Sequence Graphing Mode To display the mode screen, press z. To graph sequence functions, you must select Seq graphing mode before you enter window variables and before you enter sequence functions. Sequence graphs automatically plot in Simul mode, regardless of the current plottingorder mode setting. TI84 Plus Sequence Functions u, v, and w The TI84 Plus has three sequence functions that you can enter from the keyboard: u, v, and w. They are above the ¬, −, and ® keys. You can define sequence functions in terms of: • • • The independent variable n The previous term in the sequence function, such as u(nN1) The term that precedes the previous term in the sequence function, such as u(nN2) Chapter 6: Sequence Graphing 154 • The previous term or the term that precedes the previous term in another sequence function, such as u(nN1) or u(nN2) referenced in the sequence v(n). Note: Statements in this chapter about u(n) are also true for v(n) and w(n); statements about u(nN1) are also true for v(nN1) and w(nN1); statements about u(nN2) are also true for v(nN2) and w(nN2). Displaying the Sequence Y= Editor After selecting Seq mode, press o to display the sequence Y= editor. In this editor, you can display and enter sequences for u(n), v(n), and w(n). Also, you can edit the value for nMin, which is the sequence window variable that defines the minimum n value to evaluate. The sequence Y= editor displays the nMin value because of its relevance to u(nMin), v(nMin), and w(nMin), which are the initial values for the sequence equations u(n), v(n), and w(n), respectively.
nMin in the Y= editor is the same as nMin in the window editor. If you enter a new value for nMin in one editor, the new value for nMin is updated in both editors. Note: Use u(nMin), v(nMin), or w(nMin) only with a recursive sequence, which requires an initial value. Chapter 6: Sequence Graphing 155 Selecting Graph Styles The icons to the left of u(n), v(n), and w(n) represent the graph style of each sequence (Chapter 3). The default in Seq mode is í (dot), which shows discrete values. Dot, ç (line), and è (thick) styles are available for sequence graphing. Graph styles are ignored in Web format. Selecting and Deselecting Sequence Functions The TI84 Plus graphs only the selected sequence functions. In the Y= editor, a sequence function is selected when the = signs of both u(n)= and u(nMin)= are highlighted. To change the selection status of a sequence function, move the cursor onto the = sign of the function name, and then press Í. The status is changed for both the sequence function u(n) and its initial value u(nMin). Defining and Editing a Sequence Function To define or edit a sequence function, follow the steps in Chapter 3 for defining a function. The independent variable in a sequence is n. In Seq graphing mode, you can enter the sequence variable in either of two ways. • • Press „. Press y N [N]. You can enter the function name from the keyboard. Chapter 6: Sequence Graphing 156 • • • To enter the function name u, press y [u] (above ¬). To enter the function name v, press y [v] (above −). To enter the function name w, press y [w] (above ®). Generally, sequences are either nonrecursive or recursive. Sequences are evaluated only at consecutive integer values. n is always a series of consecutive integers, starting at zero or any positive integer. Nonrecursive Sequences In a nonrecursive sequence, the nth term is a function of the independent variable n. Each term is independent of all other terms. For example, in the nonrecursive sequence below, you can calculate u(5) directly, without first calculating u(1) or any previous term. The sequence equation above returns the sequence 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, … for n = 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, … .
Note: You may leave blank the initial value u(nMin) when calculating nonrecursive sequences. Chapter 6: Sequence Graphing 157 Recursive Sequences In a recursive sequence, the nth term in the sequence is defined in relation to the previous term or the term that precedes the previous term, represented by u(nN1) and u(nN2). A recursive sequence may also be defined in relation to n, as in u(n)=u(nN1)+n. For example, in the sequence below you cannot calculate u(5) without first calculating u(1), u(2), u(3), and u(4). Using an initial value u(nMin) = 1, the sequence above returns 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, ... .
Note: On the TI84 Plus, you must type each character of the terms. For example, to enter u(nN1), press y [u] £ „ ¹ À ¤. Recursive sequences require an initial value or values, since they reference undefined terms. • If each term in the sequence is defined in relation to the previous term, as in u(nN1), you must specify an initial value for the first term. • If each term in the sequence is defined in relation to the term that precedes the previous term, as in u(nN2), you must specify initial values for the first two terms. Chapter 6: Sequence Graphing 158 Enter the initial values as a list enclosed in braces ({ }) with commas separating the values. The value of the first term is 0 and the value of the second term is 1 for the sequence
u(n). Setting Window Variables To display the window variables, press p. These variables define the viewing window. The values below are defaults for Seq graphing in both Radian and Degree angle modes. nMin=1 nMax=10 PlotStart=1 PlotStep=1 Xmin=L10
Smallest n value to evaluate Largest n value to evaluate First term number to be plotted Incremental n value (for graphing only) Smallest X value to be displayed Chapter 6: Sequence Graphing 159 Xmax=10 Xscl=1 Ymin=L10 Ymax=10 Yscl=1 Largest X value to be displayed Spacing between the X tick marks Smallest Y value to be displayed Largest Y value to be displayed Spacing between the Y tick marks nMin must be an integer  0. nMax, PlotStart, and PlotStep must be integers  1. nMin is the smallest n value to evaluate. nMin also is displayed in the sequence Y= editor. nMax is the largest n value to evaluate. Sequences are evaluated at u(nMin), u(nMin+1), u(nMin+2), ... , u(nMax). PlotStart is the first term to be plotted. PlotStart=1 begins plotting on the first term in the sequence. If you want plotting to begin with the fifth term in a sequence, for example, set
PlotStart=5. The first four terms are evaluated but are not plotted on the graph. PlotStep is the incremental n value for graphing only. PlotStep does not affect sequence evaluation; it only designates which points are plotted on the graph. If you specify
PlotStep=2, the sequence is evaluated at each consecutive integer, but it is plotted on the graph only at every other integer. Chapter 6: Sequence Graphing 160 Selecting Axes Combinations
Setting the Graph Format To display the current graph format settings, press y .. Chapter 3 describes the format settings in detail. The other graphing modes share these format settings. The axes setting on the top line of the screen is available only in Seq mode. Time Web uv RectGC CoordOn GridOff AxesOn LableOff ExprOn vw uw Polar GC CoordOff GridOn AxesOff LabelOn ExprOff

As a graph is plotted, the TI84 Plus updates X, Y, and n. Smart Graph applies to sequence graphs (Chapter 3). Exploring Sequence Graphs
FreeMoving Cursor The freemoving cursor in Seq graphing works the same as in Func graphing. In RectGC format, moving the cursor updates the values of X and Y; if CoordOn format is selected, X and Y are displayed. In PolarGC format, X, Y, R, and q are updated; if CoordOn format is selected, R and q are displayed. TRACE The axes format setting affects TRACE. Chapter 6: Sequence Graphing 162 When Time, uv, vw, or uw axes format is selected, TRACE moves the cursor along the sequence one PlotStep increment at a time. To move five plotted points at once, press y ~ or y . • • When you begin a trace, the trace cursor is on the first selected sequence at the term number specified by PlotStart, even if it is outside the viewing window. Quick Zoom applies to all directions. To center the viewing window on the current cursor location after you have moved the trace cursor, pressÍÍ. The trace cursor returns to nMin. In Web format, the trail of the cursor helps identify points with attracting and repelling behavior in the sequence. When you begin a trace, the cursor is on the xaxis at the initial value of the first selected function.
Note: To move the cursor to a specified n during a trace, enter a value for n, and press Í. For example, to quickly return the cursor to the beginning of the sequence, paste nMin to the n= prompt and press Í. Value Moving the Trace Cursor to Any Valid n Value To move the trace cursor to any valid n value on the current function, enter the number. When you enter the first digit, an n= prompt and the number you entered are displayed in the bottomleft corner of the screen. You can enter an expression at the n= prompt. The Chapter 6: Sequence Graphing 163 value must be valid for the current viewing window. When you have completed the entry, press Í to move the cursor. ZOOM
ZOOM operations in Seq graphing work the same as in Func graphing. Only the X (Xmin, Xmax, and Xscl) and Y (Ymin, Ymax, and Yscl) window variables are affected. PlotStart, PlotStep, nMin, and nMax are only affected when you select ZStandard. The VARS Zoom secondary menu ZU items 1 through 7 are the ZOOM MEMORY variables for Seq graphing. CALC The only CALC operation available in Seq graphing is value. • • When Time axes format is selected, value displays Y (the u(n) value) for a specified n value. When Web axes format is selected, value draws the web and displays Y (the u(n) value) for a specified n value. Chapter 6: Sequence Graphing 164 • When uv, vw, or uw axes format is selected, value displays X and Y according to the axes format setting. For example, for uv axes format, X represents u(n) and Y represents v(n). Evaluating u, v, and w To enter the sequence names u, v, or w, press y [u], [v], or [w]. You can evaluate these names in any of three ways. • • • Calculate the nth value in a sequence. Calculate a list of values in a sequence. Generate a sequence with u(nstart,nstop[,nstep]). nstep is optional; default is 1. Graphing Web Plots
Graphing a Web Plot To select Web axes format, press y . ~ Í. A web plot graphs u(n) versus u(nN1), which you can use to study longterm behavior (convergence, divergence, or oscillation) of a recursive sequence. You can see how the sequence may change behavior as its initial value changes. Chapter 6: Sequence Graphing 165 Valid Functions for Web Plots When Web axes format is selected, a sequence will not graph properly or will generate an error. • • • It must be recursive with only one recursion level (u(nN1) but not u(nN2)). It cannot reference n directly. It cannot reference any defined sequence except itself. Displaying the Graph Screen In Web format, press s to display the graph screen. The TI84 Plus: • • Draws a y=x reference line in AxesOn format. Plots the selected sequences with u(nN1) as the independent variable. Note: A potential convergence point occurs whenever a sequence intersects the y=x reference line. However, the sequence may or may not actually converge at that point, depending on the sequence’s initial value. Drawing the Web To activate the trace cursor, press r. The screen displays the sequence and the current n, X, and Y values (X represents u(nN1) and Y represents u(n)). Press ~ repeatedly to draw the web step by step, starting at nMin. In Web format, the trace cursor follows this course. 1. It starts on the xaxis at the initial value u(nMin) (when PlotStart=1). Chapter 6: Sequence Graphing 166 2. It moves vertically (up or down) to the sequence. 3. It moves horizontally to the y=x reference line. 4. It repeats this vertical and horizontal movement as you continue to press ~. Using Web Plots to Illustrate Convergence
Example: Convergence 1. Press o in Seq mode to display the sequence Y= editor. Make sure the graph style is set to í (dot), and then define nMin, u(n) and u(nMin) as shown below. 2. Press y . Í to set Time axes format. 3. Press p and set the variables as shown below.

However, the dimensions must be appropriate. Each of the functions below creates a new matrix; the original matrix remains the same. Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication To add (Ã) or subtract (¹) matrices, the dimensions must be the same. The answer is a matrix in which the elements are the sum or difference of the individual corresponding elements.
matrixA+matrixB matrixANmatrixB To multiply (¯) two matrices together, the column dimension of matrixA must match the row dimension of matrixB. Chapter 10: Matrices 231 matrixA…matrixB Multiplying a matrix by a value or a value by a matrix returns a matrix in which each element of matrix is multiplied by value.

L1 L6 Using TI84 Plus List Names L1 through L6 The TI84 Plus has six list names in memory: L1, L2, L3, L4, L5, and L6. The list names L1 through L6 are on the keyboard above the numeric keys À through ¸. To paste one of these names to a valid screen, press y, and then press the appropriate key. L1 through L6 are stored in stat list editor columns 1 through 6 when you reset memory. Chapter 11: Lists 247 Creating a List Name on the Home Screen To create a list name on the home screen, follow these steps. 1. Press y E, enter one or more list elements, and then press y F. Separate list elements with commas. List elements can be real numbers, complex numbers, or expressions. 2. Press ¿. 3. Press ƒ [letter from A to Z or q] to enter the first letter of the name. 4. Enter zero to four letters, q, or numbers to complete the name. 5. Press Í. The list is displayed on the next line. The list name and its elements are stored in memory. The list name becomes an item on the LIST NAMES menu. Note: If you want to view a usercreated list in the stat list editor, you must store it in the stat list editor (Chapter 12). You also can create a list name in these four places. • At the Name= prompt in the stat list editor
248 Chapter 11: Lists • • • At an Xlist:, Ylist:, or Data List: prompt in the stat plot editor At a List:, List1:, List2:, Freq:, Freq1:, Freq2:, XList:, or YList: prompt in the inferential stat editors On the home screen using SetUpEditor You can create as many list names as your TI84 Plus memory has space to store. Storing and Displaying Lists
Storing Elements to a List You can store list elements in either of two ways. • Use braces and ¿ on the home screen. • Use the stat list editor (Chapter 12). The maximum dimension of a list is 999 elements.
Note: When you store a complex number to a list, the entire list is converted to a list of complex numbers. To convert the list to a list of real numbers, display the home screen, and then enter real(listname)!listname. Chapter 11: Lists 249 Displaying a List on the Home Screen To display the elements of a list on the home screen, enter the name of the list (preceded by Ù, if necessary, and then press Í. An ellipsis indicates that the list continues beyond the viewing window. Press ~ repeatedly (or press and hold ~) to scroll the list and view all the list elements. Copying One List to Another To copy a list, store it to another list. Accessing a List Element You can store a value to or recall a value from a specific list element. You can store to any element within the current list dimension or one element beyond.
listname(element) Chapter 11: Lists 250 Deleting a List from Memory To delete lists from memory, including L1 through L6, use the MEMORY MANAGEMENT/DELETE secondary menu (Chapter 18). Resetting memory restores L1 through L6. Removing a list from the stat list editor does not delete it from memory. Using Lists in Graphing You can use lists to graph a family of curves (Chapter 3). Entering List Names
Using the LIST NAMES Menu To display the LIST NAMES menu, press y 9. Each item is a usercreated list name except for L1 through L6. LIST NAMES menu items are sorted automatically in alphanumerical order. Only the first 10 items are labeled, using 1 through 9, then 0. To jump to the first list name that begins with a particular alpha character or q, press ƒ [letter from A to Z or q]. Chapter 11: Lists 251 Note: From the top of a menu, press } to move to the bottom. From the bottom, press † to move to the top. When you select a list name from the LIST NAMES menu, the list name is pasted to the current cursor location. • The list name symbol Ù precedes a list name when the name is pasted where nonlist name data also is valid, such as the home screen. • The Ù symbol does not precede a list name when the name is pasted where a list name is the only valid input, such as the stat list editor’s Name= prompt or the stat plot editor’s XList: and YList: prompts. Entering a UserCreated List Name Directly To enter an existing list name directly, follow these steps. 1. Press y 9 ~ to display the LIST OPS menu. Chapter 11: Lists 252 2. Select B:Ù, which pastes Ù to the current cursor location. Ù is not always necessary.
Note: You also can paste Ù to the current cursor location from the CATALOG. 3. Enter the characters that comprise the list name. Attaching Formulas to List Names
Attaching a Formula to a List Name You can attach a formula to a list name so that each list element is a result of the formula. When executed, the attached formula must resolve to a list. When anything in the attached formula changes, the list to which the formula is attached is updated automatically. • • When you edit an element of a list that is referenced in the formula, the corresponding element in the list to which the formula is attached is updated. When you edit the formula itself, all elements in the list to which the formula is attached are updated. Chapter 11: Lists 253 For example, the first screen below shows that elements are stored to L3, and the formula L3+10 is attached to the list name ÙADD10. The quotation marks designate the formula to be attached to ÙADD10. Each element of ÙADD10 is the sum of an element in L3 and 10. The next screen shows another list, L4. The elements of L4 are the sum of the same formula that is attached to L3. However, quotation marks are not entered, so the formula is not attached to L4. On the next line, L6!L3(1):L3 changes the first element in L3 to L6, and then redisplays
L3. The last screen shows that editing L3 updated ÙADD10, but did not change L4. This is because the formula L3+10 is attached to ÙADD10, but it is not attached to L4. Note: To view a formula that is attached to a list name, use the stat list editor (Chapter 12). Chapter 11: Lists 254 Attaching a Formula to a List on the Home Screen or in a Program To attach a formula to a list name from a blank line on the home screen or from a program, follow these steps. 1. Press ƒ [ã], enter the formula (which must resolve to a list), and press ƒ [ã] again.
Note: When you include more than one list name in a formula, each list must have the same dimension. 2. Press ¿. 3. Enter the name of the list to which you want to attach the formula. • • • Press y, and then enter a TI84 Plus list name L1 through L6. Press y 9 and select a user.created list name from the LIST NAMES menu. Enter a user.created list name directly using Ù. 4. Press Í. Note: The stat list editor displays a formulalock symbol next to each list name that has an attached formula. Chapter 12 describes how to use the stat list editor to attach formulas to lists, edit attached formulas, and detach formulas from lists. Chapter 11: Lists 255 Detaching a Formula from a List You can detach (clear) an attached formula from a list in several ways. For example: • • • • Enter ã ã !listname on the home screen. Edit any element of a list to which a formula is attached. Use the stat list editor (Chapter 12). Use ClrList or ClrAllList to detach a formula from a list (Chapter 18). Using Lists in Expressions
Using a List in an Expression You can use lists in an expression in any of three ways. When you press Í, any expression is evaluated for each list element, and a list is displayed. • Use L1–L6 or any usercreated list name in an expression. • Enter the list elements directly. Chapter 11: Lists 256 • Use y K to recall the contents of the list into an expression at the cursor location (Chapter 1). Note: You must paste usercreated list names to the Rcl prompt by selecting them from the LIST NAMES menu. You cannot enter them directly using Ù. Using Lists with Math Functions You can use a list to input several values for some math functions. Other chapters and Appendix A specify whether a list is valid. The function is evaluated for each list element, and a list is displayed. • When you use a list with a function, the function must be valid for every element in the list. In graphing, an invalid element, such as L1 in ‡({1,0,L1}), is ignored. This returns an error. This graphs X…‡(1) and X…‡(0), but skips
X…‡(L1). • When you use two lists with a twoargument function, the dimension of each list must be the same. The function is evaluated for corresponding elements. Chapter 11: Lists 257 • When you use a list and a value with a twoargument function, the value is used with each element in the list. LIST OPS Menu

SortA(listname) SortD(listname) With two or more lists, SortA( and SortD( sort keylistname, and then sort each dependlist by placing its elements in the same order as the corresponding elements in keylistname. All lists must have the same dimension. Chapter 11: Lists 259 SortA(keylistname,dependlist1[,dependlist2,...,dependlist n]) SortD(keylistname,dependlist1[,dependlist2,...,dependlist n]) Note: • In the example, 5 is the first element in L4, and 1 is the first element in L5. After SortA(L4,L5), 5 becomes the second element of L4, and likewise, 1 becomes the second element of L5.
SortA( and SortD( are the same as SortA( and SortD( on the STAT EDIT menu (Chapter 12). • Using dim( to Find List Dimensions
dim( (dimension) returns the length (number of elements) of list. dim(list) Chapter 11: Lists 260 Using dim( to Create a List You can use dim( with ¿ to create a new listname with dimension length from 1 to 999. The elements are zeros.

Fill( replaces each element in listname with value. Fill(value,listname) Note: dim( and Fill( are the same as dim( and Fill( on the MATRX MATH menu (Chapter 10). seq(
seq( (sequence) returns a list in which each element is the result of the evaluation of expression with regard to variable for the values ranging from begin to end at steps of increment. variable need not be defined in memory. increment can be negative; the default value for increment is 1. seq( is not valid within expression. Complex lists are not valid. seq(expression,variable,begin,end[,increment]) Chapter 11: Lists 262 cumSum(
cumSum( (cumulative sum) returns the cumulative sums of the elements in list, starting with the first element. list elements can be real or complex numbers. cumSum(list) @List( @List( returns a list containing the differences between consecutive elements in list. @List subtracts the first element in list from the second element, subtracts the second element from the third, and so on. The list of differences is always one element shorter than the original list. list elements can be a real or complex numbers. @List(list) Select(
Select( selects one or more specific data points from a scatter plot or xyLine plot (only), and then stores the selected data points to two new lists, xlistname and ylistname. For Chapter 11: Lists 263 example, you can use Select( to select and then analyze a portion of plotted CBL 2™/CBL™ or CBR™ data.
Select(xlistname,ylistname) Note: Before you use Select(, you must have selected (turned on) a scatter plot or xyLine plot. Also, the plot must be displayed in the current viewing window. Before Using Select( Before using Select(, follow these steps. 1. Create two list names and enter the data. 2. Turn on a stat plot, select " (scatter plot) or Ó (xyLine), and enter the two list names for Xlist: and Ylist: (Chapter 12). 3. Use ZoomStat to plot the data (Chapter 3).

Press  to move the cursor onto the = sign, and then press Í to deselect Y1. Press } Í to turn off plot 1. 21. Press q 9 to select 9:ZoomStat from the ZOOM menu. The window variables are adjusted automatically, and plot 2 is displayed. This is a scatter plot of the residuals. Chapter 12: Statistics 278 Notice the pattern of the residuals: a group of negative residuals, then a group of positive residuals, and then another group of negative residuals. The residual pattern indicates a curvature associated with this data set for which the linear model did not account. The residual plot emphasizes a downward curvature, so a model that curves down with the data would be more accurate. Perhaps a function such as square root would fit. Try a power regression to fit a function of the form y = a … xb. 22. Press o to display the Y= editor. Press ‘ to clear the linear regression equation from Y1. Press } Í to turn on plot 1. Press ~ Í to turn off plot 2. 23. Press q 9 to select 9:ZoomStat from the ZOOM menu.

PwrReg is pasted to the home screen. Press y d ¢ y e ¢. Press ~ 1 to display the VARS YVARS FUNCTION secondary menu, and then press 1 to select 1:Y1. L1, L2, and Y1 are pasted to the home screen as arguments to PwrReg. Chapter 12: Statistics 279 25. Press Í to calculate the power regression. Values for a and b are displayed on the home screen. The power regression equation is stored in Y1. Residuals are calculated and stored automatically in the list name RESID. 26. Press s. The regression line and the scatter plot are displayed. The new function y=.192x.522 appears to fit the data well. To get more information, examine a residual plot. 27. Press o to display the Y= editor. Press  Í to deselect Y1. Press } Í to turn off plot 1. Press ~ Í to turn on plot 2.
Note: Step 19 defined plot 2 to plot residuals (RESID) versus string length (L1). 28. Press q 9 to select 9:ZoomStat from the ZOOM menu. The window variables are adjusted automatically, and plot 2 is displayed. This is a scatter plot of the residuals. Chapter 12: Statistics 280 The new residual plot shows that the residuals are random in sign, with the residuals increasing in magnitude as the string length increases. To see the magnitudes of the residuals, continue with these steps. 29. Press r. Press ~ and  to trace the data. Observe the values for Y at each point. With this model, the largest positive residual is about 0.041 and the smallest negative residual is about L0.027. All other residuals are less than 0.02 in magnitude. Now that you have a good model for the relationship between length and period, you can use the model to predict the period for a given string length. To predict the periods for a pendulum with string lengths of 20 cm and 50 cm, continue with these steps. 30. Press ~ 1 to display the VARS YVARS FUNCTION secondary menu, and then press 1 to select 1:Y1. Y1 is pasted to the home screen. Chapter 12: Statistics 281 31. Press £ 20 ¤ to enter a string length of 20 cm. Press Í to calculate the predicted time of about 0.92 seconds. Based on the residual analysis, we would expect the prediction of about 0.92 seconds to be within about 0.02 seconds of the actual value. 32. Press y [ to recall the Last Entry. Press    5 to change the string length to 50 cm. 33. Press Í to calculate the predicted time of about 1.48 seconds. Since a string length of 50 cm exceeds the lengths in the data set, and since residuals appear to be increasing as string length increases, we would expect more error with this estimate.
Note: You also can make predictions using the table with the TABLE SETUP settings Indpnt:Ask and Depend:Auto (Chapter 7). Setting Up Statistical Analyses
Using Lists to Store Data Data for statistical analyses is stored in lists, which you can create and edit using the stat list editor. The TI84 Plus has six list variables in memory, L1 through L6, to which you Chapter 12: Statistics 282 can store data for statistical calculations. Also, you can store data to list names that you create (Chapter 11). Setting Up a Statistical Analysis To set up a statistical analysis, follow these steps. Read the chapter for details. 1. Enter the statistical data into one or more lists. 2. Plot the data. 3. Calculate the statistical variables or fit a model to the data. 4. Graph the regression equation for the plotted data. 5. Graph the residuals list for the given regression model. Displaying the Stat List Editor The stat list editor is a table where you can store, edit, and view up to 20 lists that are in memory. Also, you can create list names from the stat list editor. To display the stat list editor, press …, and then select 1:Edit from the STAT EDIT menu. Chapter 12: Statistics 283 The top line displays list names. L1 through L6 are stored in columns 1 through 6 after a memory reset.

An unnamed column is displayed and the remaining lists shift right one column. Press } until the cursor is on the top line, and then press ~ until you reach the unnamed column. • Note: If list names are stored to all 20 columns, you must remove a list name to make room for an unnamed column. The Name= prompt is displayed and alphalock is on. Chapter 12: Statistics 284 2. Enter a valid list name in any of four ways. • • • • Select a name from the LIST NAMES menu (Chapter 11). Enter L1, L2, L3, L4, L5, or L6 from the keyboard. Enter an existing usercreated list name directly from the keyboard. Enter a new usercreated list name. 3. Press Í or † to store the list name and its elements, if any, in the current column of the stat list editor. Chapter 12: Statistics 285 To begin entering, scrolling, or editing list elements, press †. The rectangular cursor is displayed.
Note: If the list name you entered in step 2 already was stored in another stat list editor column, then the list and its elements, if any, move to the current column from the previous column. Remaining list names shift accordingly. Creating a Name in the Stat List Editor To create a name in the stat list editor, follow these steps. 1. Display the Name= prompt. 2. Press [letter from A to Z or q] to enter the first letter of the name. The first character cannot be a number. 3. Enter zero to four letters, q, or numbers to complete the new usercreated list name. List names can be one to five characters long. 4. Press Í or † to store the list name in the current column of the stat list editor. The list name becomes an item on the LIST NAMES menu (Chapter 11). Chapter 12: Statistics 286 Removing a List from the Stat List Editor To remove a list from the stat list editor, move the cursor onto the list name and then press {. The list is not deleted from memory; it is only removed from the stat list editor.
Notes: • To delete a list name from memory, use the MEMORY MANAGEMENT/DELETE secondary menu (Chapter 18). If you archive a list, it will be removed from the stat list editor. • L1 L6 Removing All Lists and Restoring L1 through L6 You can remove all usercreated lists from the stat list editor and restore list names L1 through L6 to columns 1 through 6 in either of two ways. • • Use SetUpEditor with no arguments. Reset all memory (Chapter 18). Clearing All Elements from a List You can clear all elements from a list in any of five ways. • • • Use ClrList to clear specified lists. In the stat list editor, press } to move the cursor onto a list name, and then press ‘ Í. In the stat list editor, move the cursor onto each element, and then press { one by one.
287 Chapter 12: Statistics • • On the home screen or in the program editor, enter 0!dim(listname) to set the dimension of listname to 0 (Chapter 11). Use ClrAllLists to clear all lists in memory (Chapter 18). Editing a List Element To edit a list element, follow these steps. 1. Move the rectangular cursor onto the element you want to edit. 2. Press Í to move the cursor to the entry line.
Note: If you want to replace the current value, you can enter a new value without first pressing Í. When you enter the first character, the current value is cleared automatically. • • Press one or more keys to enter the new value. When you enter the first character, the current value is cleared automatically. 3. Edit the element in the entry line. Press ~ to move the cursor to the character before which you want to insert, press y 6, and then enter one or more characters. Press ~ to move the cursor to a character you want to delete, and then press { to delete the character. • To cancel any editing and restore the original element at the rectangular cursor, press ‘ Í. Chapter 12: Statistics 288 Note: You can enter expressions and variables for elements. 4. Press Í, }, or † to update the list. If you entered an expression, it is evaluated. If you entered only a variable, the stored value is displayed as a list element. When you edit a list element in the stat list editor, the list is updated in memory immediately. Attaching Formulas to List Names
Attaching a Formula to a List Name in Stat List Editor You can attach a formula to a list name in the stat list editor, and then display and edit the calculated list elements. When executed, the attached formula must resolve to a list. Chapter 11 describes in detail the concept of attaching formulas to list names. To attach a formula to a list name that is stored in the stat list editor, follow these steps.
Chapter 12: Statistics 289 1. Press … Í to display the stat list editor. 2. Press } to move the cursor to the top line. 3. Press  or ~, if necessary, to move the cursor onto the list name to which you want to attach the formula.
Note: If a formula in quotation marks is displayed on the entry line, then a formula is already attached to the list name. To edit the formula, press Í, and then edit the formula. 4. Press ƒ ããä, enter the formula, and press ƒ ããä.
Note: If you do not use quotation marks, the TI84 Plus calculates and displays the same initial list of answers, but does not attach the formula for future calculations. Note: Any usercreated list name referenced in a formula must be preceded by an Ù symbol (Chapter 11). 5. Press Í. The TI84 Plus calculates each list element and stores it to the list name to which the formula is attached. A lock symbol is displayed in the stat list editor, next to the list name to which the formula is attached. Chapter 12: Statistics 290 lock symbol Using the Stat List Editor When FormulaGenerated Lists Are Displayed When you edit an element of a list referenced in an attached formula, the TI84 Plus updates the corresponding element in the list to which the formula is attached (Chapter 11). When a list with a formula attached is displayed in the stat list editor and you edit or enter elements of another displayed list, then the TI84 Plus takes slightly longer to accept each edit or entry than when no lists with formulas attached are in view.
Note: To speed editing time, scroll horizontally until no lists with formulas are displayed, or rearrange the stat list editor so that no lists with formulas are displayed. Chapter 12: Statistics 291 Handling Errors Resulting from Attached Formulas On the home screen, you can attach to a list a formula that references another list with dimension 0 (Chapter 11). However, you cannot display the formulagenerated list in the stat list editor or on the home screen until you enter at least one element to the list that the formula references. All elements of a list referenced by an attached formula must be valid for the attached formula. For example, if Real number mode is set and the attached formula is log(L1), then each element of L1 must be greater than 0, since the logarithm of a negative number returns a complex result.
Notes: • If an error menu is returned when you attempt to display a formulagenerated list in the stat list editor, you can select 2:Goto, write down the formula that is attached to the list, and then press ‘ Í to detach (clear) the formula. You then can use the stat list editor to find the source of the error. After making the appropriate changes, you can reattach the formula to a list. If you do not want to clear the formula, you can select 1:Quit, display the referenced list on the home screen, and find and edit the source of the error. To edit an element of a list on the home screen, store the new value to listname(element#) (Chapter 11). • Detaching Formulas from List Names
Detaching a Formula from a List Name You can detach (clear) a formula from a list name in several ways. Chapter 12: Statistics 292 For example: • In the stat list editor, move the cursor onto the name of the list to which a formula is attached. Press Í ‘ Í. All list elements remain, but the formula is detached and the lock symbol disappears. In the stat list editor, move the cursor onto an element of the list to which a formula is attached. Press Í, edit the element, and then press Í. The element changes, the formula is detached, and the lock symbol disappears. All other list elements remain. Use ClrList. All elements of one or more specified lists are cleared, each formula is detached, and each lock symbol disappears. All list names remain. Use ClrAllLists (Chapter 18). All elements of all lists in memory are cleared, all formulas are detached from all list names, and all lock symbols disappear. All list names remain. • • • Editing an Element of a FormulaGenerated List As described above, one way to detach a formula from a list name is to edit an element of the list to which the formula is attached. The TI84 Plus protects against inadvertently detaching the formula from the list name by editing an element of the formulagenerated list. Because of the protection feature, you must press Í before you can edit an element of a formulagenerated list. The protection feature does not allow you to delete an element of a list to which a formula is attached. To delete an element of a list to which a formula is attached, you must first detach the formula in any of the ways described above. Chapter 12: Statistics 293 Switching Stat List Editor Contexts
Stat List Editor Contexts The stat list editor has four contexts. • • • • Viewelements context Viewnames context Editelements context Entername context The stat list editor is first displayed in viewelements context. To switch through the four contexts, select 1:Edit from the STAT EDIT menu and follow these steps. 1. Press } to move the cursor onto a list name. You are now in viewnames context. Press ~ and  to view list names stored in other stat list editor columns. 2. Press Í. You are now in editelements context. You may edit any element in a list.

Press †. You are now back in viewelements context. Stat List Editor Contexts
ViewElements Context In viewelements context, the entry line displays the list name, the current element’s place in that list, and the full value of the current element, up to 12 characters at a time. An ellipsis (...) indicates that the element continues beyond 12 characters. Chapter 12: Statistics 295 To page down the list six elements, press ƒ †. To page up six elements, press ƒ }. To delete a list element, press {. Remaining elements shift up one row. To insert a new element, press y 6. 0 is the default value for a new element. EditElements Context In editelements context, the data displayed in the entry line depends on the previous context. • When you switch to editelements context from viewelements context, the full value of the current element is displayed. You can edit the value of this element, and then press † and } to edit other list elements. Chapter 12: Statistics 296 • When you switch to editelements context from viewnames context, the full values of all elements in the list are displayed. An ellipsis indicates that list elements continue beyond the screen. You can press ~ and  to edit any element in the list. Note: In editelements context, you can attach a formula to a list name only if you switched to it from viewnames context. ViewNames Context In viewnames context, the entry line displays the list name and the list elements. To remove a list from the stat list editor, press {. Remaining lists shift to the left one column. The list is not deleted from memory. To insert a name in the current column, press y 6. Remaining columns shift to the right one column. Chapter 12: Statistics 297 EnterName Context In entername context, the Name= prompt is displayed in the entry line, and alphalock is on. At the Name= prompt, you can create a new list name, paste a list name from L1 to L6 from the keyboard, or paste an existing list name from the LIST NAMES menu (Chapter 11). The Ù symbol is not required at the Name= prompt. To leave entername context without entering a list name, press ‘. The stat list editor switches to viewnames context.

SortA( (sort ascending) sorts list elements from low to high values. SortD( (sort descending) sorts list elements from high to low values. Complex lists are sorted based on magnitude (modulus). SortA( and SortD( each can sort in either of two ways. • • With one listname, SortA( and SortD( sort the elements in listname and update the list in memory. With two or more lists, SortA( and SortD( sort keylistname, and then sort each dependlist by placing its elements in the same order as the corresponding elements in Chapter 12: Statistics 299 keylistname. This lets you sort twovariable data on X and keep the data pairs together. All lists must have the same dimension. The sorted lists are updated in memory.
SortA(listname) SortD(listname) SortA(keylistname,dependlist1[,dependlist2,...,dependlist n]) SortD(keylistname,dependlist1[,dependlist2,...,dependlist n]) Note: SortA( and SortD( are the same as SortA( and SortD( on the LIST OPS menu. ClrList
ClrList clears (deletes) from memory the elements of one or more listnames. ClrList also detaches any formula attached to a listname. ClrList listname1,listname2,...,listname n Note: To clear from memory all elements of all list names, use ClrAllLists (Chapter 18). Chapter 12: Statistics 300 SetUpEditor With SetUpEditor you can set up the stat list editor to display one or more listnames in the order that you specify. You can specify zero to 20 listnames. Additionally, if you want to use listnames which happen to be archived, the SetUp Editor will automatically unarchive the listnames and place them in the stat list editor at the same time.
SetUpEditor [listname1,listname2,...,listname n] SetUpEditor with one to 20 listnames removes all list names from the stat list editor and then stores listnames in the stat list editor columns in the specified order, beginning in column 1. If you enter a listname that is not stored in memory already, then listname is created and stored in memory; it becomes an item on the LIST NAMES menu. Chapter 12: Statistics 301 L1 L6 Restoring L1 through L6 to the Stat List Editor
SetUpEditor with no listnames removes all list names from the stat list editor and restores list names L1 through L6 in the stat list editor columns 1 through 6. Regression Model Features
Regression Model Features
STAT CALC menu items 3 through C are regression models. The automatic residual list and automatic regression equation features apply to all regression models. Diagnostics display mode applies to some regression models. Automatic Residual List When you execute a regression model, the automatic residual list feature computes and stores the residuals to the list name RESID. RESID becomes an item on the LIST NAMES menu (Chapter 11). Chapter 12: Statistics 302 The TI84 Plus uses the formula below to compute RESID list elements. The next section describes the variable RegEQ.
RESID = Ylistname N RegEQ(Xlistname) Automatic Regression Equation Each regression model has an optional argument, regequ, for which you can specify a Y= variable such as Y1. Upon execution, the regression equation is stored automatically to the specified Y= variable and the Y= function is selected. Regardless of whether you specify a Y= variable for regequ, the regression equation always is stored to the TI84 Plus variable RegEQ, which is item 1 on the VARS Statistics EQ secondary menu. Chapter 12: Statistics 303 Note: For the regression equation, you can use the fixeddecimal mode setting to control the number of digits stored after the decimal point (Chapter 1). However, limiting the number of digits to a small number could affect the accuracy of the fit. Diagnostics Display Mode When you execute some regression models, the TI84 Plus computes and stores diagnostics values for r (correlation coefficient) and r2 (coefficient of determination) or for R2 (coefficient of determination).
r and r2 are computed and stored for these regression models. LinReg(ax+b) LinReg(a+bx) LnReg ExpReg PwrReg R2 is computed and stored for these regression models. QuadReg CubicReg QuartReg The r and r2 that are computed for LnReg, ExpReg, and PwrReg are based on the linearly transformed data. For example, for ExpReg (y=ab^x), r and r2 are computed on ln y=ln a+x(ln b). Chapter 12: Statistics 304 By default, these values are not displayed with the results of a regression model when you execute it. However, you can set the diagnostics display mode by executing the DiagnosticOn or DiagnosticOff instruction. Each instruction is in the CATALOG (Chapter 15). Note: To set DiagnosticOn or DiagnosticOff from the home screen, press y N, and then select the instruction for the mode you want. The instruction is pasted to the home screen. Press Í to set the mode. When DiagnosticOn is set, diagnostics are displayed with the results when you execute a regression model. When DiagnosticOff is set, diagnostics are not displayed with the results when you execute a regression model. Chapter 12: Statistics 305 STAT CALC Menu

If you do not specify freqlist, then the default is 1 occurrence of each list element. Frequency of Occurrence for Data Points For most STAT CALC menu items, you can specify a list of data occurrences, or frequencies (freqlist). Each element in freqlist indicates how many times the corresponding data point or data pair occurs in the data set you are analyzing. For example, if L1={15,12,9,14} and ÙFREQ={1,4,1,3}, then the TI84 Plus interprets the instruction 1Var Stats L1, ÙFREQ to mean that 15 occurs once, 12 occurs four times, 9 occurs once, and 14 occurs three times. Each element in freqlist must be ‚ 0, and at least one element must be > 0. Noninteger freqlist elements are valid. This is useful when entering frequencies expressed as percentages or parts that add up to 1. However, if freqlist contains noninteger frequencies, Sx and Sy are undefined; values are not displayed for Sx and Sy in the statistical results. 1Var Stats
1Var Stats (onevariable statistics) analyzes data with one measured variable. Each element in freqlist is the frequency of occurrence for each corresponding data point in Xlistname. freqlist elements must be real numbers > 0. 1Var Stats [Xlistname,freqlist] Chapter 12: Statistics 307 2Var Stats
2Var Stats (twovariable statistics) analyzes paired data. Xlistname is the independent variable. Ylistname is the dependent variable. Each element in freqlist is the frequency of occurrence for each data pair (Xlistname,Ylistname). 2Var Stats [Xlistname,Ylistname,freqlist] MedMed (ax+b)
MedMed (medianmedian) fits the model equation y=ax+b to the data using the median median line (resistant line) technique, calculating the summary points x1, y1, x2, y2, x3, and y3. MedMed displays values for a (slope) and b (yintercept).

It displays values for a and b; when DiagnosticOn is set, it also displays values for r2 and r. PwrReg [Xlistname,Ylistname,freqlist,regequ] Logistic—c/ Logistic—c/ (1+a…ebx)
Logistic fits the model equation y=c/(1+a…eLbx) to the data using an iterative leastsquares fit. It displays values for a, b, and c. Logistic [Xlistname,Ylistname,freqlist,regequ] SinReg—a sin(bx+c)+d
SinReg (sinusoidal regression) fits the model equation y=a sin(bx+c)+d to the data using an iterative leastsquares fit. It displays values for a, b, c, and d. At least four data points are required. At least two data points per cycle are required in order to avoid aliased frequency estimates. SinReg [iterations,Xlistname,Ylistname,period,regequ] iterations is the maximum number of times the algorithm will iterate to find a solution. The value for iterations can be an integer ‚ 1 and 16; if not specified, the default is 3. The algorithm may find a solution before iterations is reached. Typically, larger values for iterations result in longer execution times and better accuracy for SinReg, and vice versa. A period guess is optional. If you do not specify period, the difference between time values in Xlistname must be equal and the time values must be ordered in ascending sequential
Chapter 12: Statistics 311 order. If you specify period, the algorithm may find a solution more quickly, or it may find a solution when it would not have found one if you had omitted a value for period. If you specify period, the differences between time values in Xlistname can be unequal.
Note: The output of SinReg is always in radians, regardless of the Radian/Degree mode setting. SinReg Example: Daylight Hours in Alaska for One Year Compute the regression model for the number of hours of daylight in Alaska during one year. 1 period Chapter 12: Statistics 312 With noisy data, you will achieve better convergence results when you specify an accurate estimate for period. You can obtain a period guess in either of two ways. • Plot the data and trace to determine the xdistance between the beginning and end of one complete period, or cycle. The illustration above and to the right graphically depicts a complete period, or cycle. Plot the data and trace to determine the xdistance between the beginning and end of N complete periods, or cycles. Then divide the total distance by N. • After your first attempt to use SinReg and the default value for iterations to fit the data, you may find the fit to be approximately correct, but not optimal. For an optimal fit, execute SinReg 16,Xlistname,Ylistname,2p/b where b is the value obtained from the previous SinReg execution.

Chapter 12: Statistics 316 Statistical Analysis in a Program
Entering Stat Data You can enter statistical data, calculate statistical results, and fit models to data from a program. You can enter statistical data into lists directly within the program (Chapter 11). Statistical Calculations To perform a statistical calculation from a program, follow these steps. 1. On a blank line in the program editor, select the type of calculation from the STAT CALC menu. 2. Enter the names of the lists to use in the calculation. Separate the list names with a comma. 3. Enter a comma and then the name of a Y= variable, if you want to store the regression equation to a Y= variable. Chapter 12: Statistics 317 Statistical Plotting
Steps for Plotting Statistical Data in Lists You can plot statistical data that is stored in lists. The six types of plots available are scatter plot, xyLine, histogram, modified box plot, regular box plot, and normal probability plot. You can define up to three plots. To plot statistical data in lists, follow these steps. 1. Store the stat data in one or more lists. 2. Select or deselect Y= functions as appropriate. 3. Define the stat plot. 4. Turn on the plots you want to display. 5. Define the viewing window. 6. Display and explore the graph. Chapter 12: Statistics 318 Scatter
Scatter (")plots plot the data points from Xlist and Ylist as coordinate pairs, showing each point as a box ( › ), cross ( + ), or dot ( ¦ ). Xlist and Ylist must be the same length. You can use the same list for Xlist and Ylist. xyLine
xyLine (Ó)is a scatter plot in which the data points are plotted and connected in order of appearance in Xlist and Ylist. You may want to use SortA( or SortD( to sort the lists before you plot them. Chapter 12: Statistics 319 Histogram
Histogram (Ò) plots onevariable data. The Xscl window variable value determines the width of each bar, beginning at Xmin. ZoomStat adjusts Xmin, Xmax, Ymin, and Ymax to include all values, and also adjusts Xscl. The inequality (Xmax N Xmin) à Xscl 47 must be true. A value that occurs on the edge of a bar is counted in the bar to the right. ModBoxplot
ModBoxplot (Õ) (modified box plot) plots onevariable data, like the regular box plot, except points that are 1.5 … Interquartile Range beyond the quartiles. (The Interquartile Range is defined as the difference between the third quartile Q3 and the first quartile Q1.) These points are plotted individually beyond the whisker, using the Mark (› or + or ¦) you select. You can trace these points, which are called outliers. The prompt for outlier points is x=, except when the outlier is the maximum point (maxX) or the minimum point (minX). When outliers exist, the end of each whisker will display x=. When no outliers exist, minX and maxX are the prompts for the end of each whisker. Q1, Med (median), and Q3 define the box. Box plots are plotted with respect to Xmin and Xmax, but ignore Ymin and Ymax. When two box plots are plotted, the first one plots at the top of the screen and the second plots Chapter 12: Statistics 320 in the middle. When three are plotted, the first one plots at the top, the second in the middle, and the third at the bottom. Boxplot
Boxplot (Ö)(regular box plot) plots onevariable data. The whiskers on the plot extend from the minimum data point in the set (minX) to the first quartile (Q1) and from the third quartile (Q3) to the maximum point (maxX). The box is defined by Q1, Med (median), and Q3. Box plots are plotted with respect to Xmin and Xmax, but ignore Ymin and Ymax. When two box plots are plotted, the first one plots at the top of the screen and the second plots in the middle. When three are plotted, the first one plots at the top, the second in the middle, and the third at the bottom. Chapter 12: Statistics 321 NormProbPlot
NormProbPlot (Ô) (normal probability plot) plots each observation X in Data List versus the corresponding quantile z of the standard normal distribution. If the plotted points lie close to a straight line, then the plot indicates that the data are normal. Enter a valid list name in the Data List field. Select X or Y for the Data Axis setting. • • If you select X, the TI84 Plus plots the data on the xaxis and the zvalues on the yaxis. If you select Y, the TI84 Plus plots the data on the yaxis and the zvalues on the xaxis. Defining the Plots To define a plot, follow these steps. Chapter 12: Statistics 322 1. Press y ,. The STAT PLOTS menu is displayed with the current plot definitions. 2. Select the plot you want to use. The stat plot editor is displayed for the plot you selected. 3.

Getting Started: Mean Height of a Population
Getting Started is a fastpaced introduction. Read the chapter for details. Suppose you want to estimate the mean height of a population of women given the random sample below. Because heights among a biological population tend to be normally distributed, a t distribution confidence interval can be used when estimating the mean. The 10 height values below are the first 10 of 90 values, randomly generated from a normally distributed population with an assumed mean of 165.1 centimeters and a standard deviation of 6.35 centimeters (randNorm(165.1,6.35,90) with a seed of 789). Height (in centimeters) of Each of 10 Women 169.43 168.33 159.55 169.97 159.79 181.42 171.17 162.04 167.15 159.53 1. Press … Í to display the stat list editor. Press } to move the cursor onto L1, and then press y 6. The Name= prompt is displayed on the bottom line. The Ø cursor indicates that alphalock is on. The existing list name columns shift to the right.
Note: Your stat editor may not look like the one pictured here, depending on the lists you have already stored. Chapter 13: Inferential Statistics and Distributions 330 2. Enter [H] [G] [H] [T] at the Name= prompt, and then press Í. The list to which you will store the women’s height data is created. Press † to move the cursor onto the first row of the list. HGHT(1)= is displayed on the bottom line. 3. Press 169 Ë 43 to enter the first height value. As you enter it, it is displayed on the bottom line. Press Í. The value is displayed in the first row, and the rectangular cursor moves to the next row. Enter the other nine height values the same way. 4. Press …  to display the STAT TESTS menu, and then press † until 8:TInterval is highlighted. 5. Press Í to select 8:TInterval. The inferential stat editor for TInterval is displayed. If Data is not selected for Inpt:, press  Í to select Data. Press † and [H] [G] [H] [T] at the List: prompt (alphalock is on). Press † † Ë 99 to enter a 99 percent confidence level at the CLevel: prompt. Chapter 13: Inferential Statistics and Distributions 331 6. Press † to move the cursor onto Calculate, and then press Í. The confidence interval is calculated, and the TInterval results are displayed on the home screen. Interpret the results. The first line, (159.74,173.94), shows that the 99 percent confidence interval for the population mean is between about 159.74 centimeters and 173.94 centimeters. This is about a 14.2 centimeters spread. The .99 confidence level indicates that in a very large number of samples, we expect 99 percent of the intervals calculated to contain the population mean. The actual mean of the population sampled is 165.1 centimeters, which is in the calculated interval. The second line gives the mean height of the sample v used to compute this interval. The third line gives the sample standard deviation Sx. The bottom line gives the sample size n. To obtain a more precise bound on the population mean m of women’s heights, increase the sample size to 90. Use a sample mean v of 163.8 and sample standard deviation Sx Chapter 13: Inferential Statistics and Distributions 332 of 7.1 calculated from the larger random sample. This time, use the Stats (summary statistics) input option. 7. Press …  8 to display the inferential stat editor for TInterval. Press ~ Í to select Inpt:Stats. The editor changes so that you can enter summary statistics as input. 8. Press † 163 Ë 8 Í to store 163.8 to v. Press 7 Ë 1 Í to store 7.1 to Sx. Press 90 Í to store 90 to n. 9. Press † to move the cursor onto Calculate, and then press Í to calculate the new 99 percent confidence interval. The results are displayed on the home screen. Chapter 13: Inferential Statistics and Distributions 333 If the height distribution among a population of women is normally distributed with a mean m of 165.1 centimeters and a standard deviation s of 6.35 centimeters, what height is exceeded by only 5 percent of the women (the 95th percentile)? 10.

Calculating Time Value of Money Use timevalueofmoney (TVM) functions (menu items 2 through 6) to analyze financial instruments such as annuities, loans, mortgages, leases, and savings. Each TVM function takes zero to six arguments, which must be real numbers. The values that you specify as arguments for TVM functions are not stored to the TVM variables.
Note: To store a value to a TVM variable, use the TVM Solver or use ¿ and any TVM variable on the FINANCE VARS menu. If you enter less than six arguments, the TI84 Plus substitutes a previously stored TVM variable value for each unspecified argument. If you enter any arguments with a TVM function, you must place the argument or arguments in parentheses. tvm_Pmt

Calculating a Cash Flow Use the cash flow functions (menu items 7 and 8) to analyze the value of money over equal time periods. You can enter unequal cash flows, which can be cash inflows or outflows. The syntax descriptions for npv( and irr( use these arguments. • • • •
interest rate is the rate by which to discount the cash flows (the cost of money) over one period. CF0 is the initial cash flow at time 0; it must be a real number. CFList is a list of cash flow amounts after the initial cash flow CF0. CFFreq is a list in which each element specifies the frequency of occurrence for a grouped (consecutive) cash flow amount, which is the corresponding element of CFList. The default is 1; if you enter values, they must be positive integers < 10,000. For example, express this uneven cash flow in lists.
2000 2000 2000 4000 4000 3000 CF0 = 2000 CFList = {2000,L3000,4000} CFFreq = {2,1,2} Chapter 14: Applications 397 npv(, irr(
npv( (net present value) is the sum of the present values for the cash inflows and outflows. A positive result for npv indicates a profitable investment. npv(interest rate,CF0,CFList[,CFFreq]) irr( (internal rate of return) is the interest rate at which the net present value of the cash flows is equal to zero.
irr(CF0,CFList[,CFFreq])

Then following an If executes a group of commands if condition is true (nonzero). End identifies the end of the group of commands. :If condition :Then :command (if true) :command (if true) Chapter 16: Programming 437 :End :command Program Output IfThenElse
Else following IfThen executes a group of commands if condition is false (zero). End identifies the end of the group of commands. :If condition :Then :command (if true) :command (if true) :Else :command (if false) :command (if false) :End :command Program Output Chapter 16: Programming 438 For(
For( loops and increments. It increments variable from begin to end by increment. increment is optional (default is 1) and can be negative (end<begin). end is a maximum or minimum value not to be exceeded. End identifies the end of the loop. For( loops can be nested. :For(variable,begin,end[,increment]) :command (while end not exceeded) :command (while end not exceeded) :End :command Program Output Chapter 16: Programming 439 While
While performs a group of commands while condition is true. condition is frequently a relational test (Chapter 2). condition is tested when While is encountered. If condition is true (nonzero), the program executes a group of commands. End signifies the end of the group. When condition is false (zero), the program executes each command following End. While instructions can be nested. :While condition :command (while condition is true) :command (while condition is true) :End :command Program Output Repeat
Repeat repeats a group of commands until condition is true (nonzero). It is similar to While, but condition is tested when End is encountered; therefore, the group of commands is always executed at least once. Repeat instructions can be nested. :Repeat condition :command (until condition is true) Chapter 16: Programming 440 :command (until condition is true) :End :command Program Output End
End identifies the end of a group of commands. You must include an End instruction at the end of each For(, While, or Repeat loop. Also, you must paste an End instruction at the end of each IfThen group and each IfThenElse group. Pause During the pause, the pause indicator is on in the topright corner. Press Í to resume execution. • •
Pause suspends execution of the program so that you can see answers or graphs. Pause without a value temporarily pauses the program. If the DispGraph or Disp instruction has been executed, the appropriate screen is displayed.
Pause with value displays value on the current home screen. value can be scrolled. Chapter 16: Programming 441 Pause [value] Program Output Lbl, Goto
Lbl (label) and Goto (go to) are used together for branching. Lbl specifies the label for a command. label can be one or two characters (A through Z, 0 through 99, or q).
Lbl label Goto causes the program to branch to label when Goto is encountered. Chapter 16: Programming 442 Goto label Program Output IS>(
IS>( (increment and skip) adds 1 to variable. If the answer is > value (which can be an expression), the next command is skipped; if the answer is { value, the next command is executed. variable cannot be a system variable. :IS>(variable,value) :command (if answer value) :command (if answer > value) Program Output Note: IS>( is not a looping instruction. Chapter 16: Programming 443 DS<(
DS<( (decrement and skip) subtracts 1 from variable. If the answer is < value (which can be an expression), the next command is skipped; if the answer is  value, the next command is executed. variable cannot be a system variable. :DS<(variable,value) :command (if answer ‚ value) :command (if answer < value) Program Output Note: DS<( is not a looping instruction. Menu(
Menu( sets up branching within a program. If Menu( is encountered during program execution, the menu screen is displayed with the specified menu items, the pause indicator is on, and execution pauses until you select a menu item. The menu title is enclosed in quotation marks ( " ). Up to seven pairs of menu items follow. Each pair comprises a text item (also enclosed in quotation marks) to be displayed as a menu selection, and a label item to which to branch if you select the corresponding menu selection. Chapter 16: Programming 444 Menu("title","text1",label1,"text2",label2, . . .) Program Output The program above pauses until you select 1 or 2. If you select 2, for example, the menu disappears and the program continues execution at Lbl B. prgm Use prgm to execute other programs as subroutines. When you select prgm, it is pasted to the cursor location. Enter characters to spell a program name. Using prgm is equivalent to selecting existing programs from the PRGM EXEC menu; however, it allows you to enter the name of a program that you have not yet created.
prgmname Note: You cannot directly enter the subroutine name when using RCL. You must paste the name from the PRGM EXEC menu. Return
Return quits the subroutine and returns execution to the calling program, even if encountered within nested loops. Any loops are ended. An implied Return exists at the end of any program that is called as a subroutine. Within the main program, Return stops execution and returns to the home screen.

Use a Memory Management editor screen. Before archiving or unarchiving variables, particularly those with a large byte size (such as large programs) use the MEMORY menu to: • • Find the size of the variable. See if there is enough free space.
For: Archive UnArchive Sizes must be such that: Archive free size > variable size RAM free size > variable size Note: If there is not enough space, unarchive or delete variables as necessary. Be aware that when you unarchive a variable, not all the memory associated with that variable in user data archive will be released since the system keeps track of where the variable has been and where it is now in RAM. Even if there appears to be enough free space, you may see a Garbage Collection message when you attempt to archive a variable. Depending on the usability of empty blocks in the user data archive, you may need to unarchive existing variables to create more free space.

Chapter 18: Memory and Variable Management 534 Grouping and Ungrouping Variables
Grouping Variables Grouping allows you to make a copy of two or more variables residing in RAM and then store them as a group in user data archive. The variables in RAM are not erased. The variables must exist in RAM before they can be grouped. In other words, archived data cannot be included in a group. Once grouped, the variables can be deleted from RAM to open memory. When the variables are needed later, they can be ungrouped for use. To create a group of variables: 1. Press y L to display the MEMORY menu. 2. Select 8:Group to display GROUP UNGROUP menu. 3. Press Í to display the GROUP menu. Chapter 18: Memory and Variable Management 535 4. Enter a name for the new group and press Í.

Note: Ungrouping does not remove the group from user data archive. You must delete the group in user data archive to remove it. Chapter 18: Memory and Variable Management 540 Garbage Collection
Garbage Collection Message If you use the user data archive extensively, you may see a Garbage Collect? message. This occurs if you try to archive a variable when there is not enough free contiguous archive memory. The Garbage Collect? message lets you know an archive will take longer than usual. It also alerts you that the archive will fail if there is not enough memory. The message can also alert you when a program is caught in a loop that repetitively fills the user data archive. Select No to cancel the garbage collection process, and then find and correct the errors in your program. When YES is selected, the TI84 Plus will attempt to rearrange the archived variables to make additional room. Responding to the Garbage Collection Message • • • • To cancel, select 1:No. If you select 1:No, the message ERR:ARCHIVE FULL will be displayed. To continue archiving, select 2:Yes. If you select 2:Yes, the process message Garbage Collecting... or Defragmenting... will be displayed. Chapter 18: Memory and Variable Management 541 Note: The process message Defragmenting... is displayed whenever an application marked for deletion is encountered. Garbage collection may take up to 20 minutes, depending on how much of archive memory has been used to store variables. After garbage collection, depending on how much additional space is freed, the variable may or may not be archived. If not, you can unarchive some variables and try again. Why Is Garbage Collection Necessary? The user data archive is divided into sectors. When you first begin archiving, variables are stored consecutively in sector 1. This continues to the end of the sector. An archived variable is stored in a continuous block within a single sector. Unlike an application stored in user data archive, an archived variable cannot cross a sector boundary. If there is not enough space left in the sector, the next variable is stored at the beginning of the next sector. Typically, this leaves an empty block at the end of the previous sector.
Sector 1 Empty block variable A variable B variable D variable C Sector 2 Depending on its size, variable D is stored in one of these locations. Sector 3 Chapter 18: Memory and Variable Management 542 Each variable that you archive is stored in the first empty block large enough to hold it. This process continues to the end of the last sector. Depending on the size of individual variables, the empty blocks may account for a significant amount of space. Garbage collection occurs when the variable you are archiving is larger than any empty block. How Unarchiving a Variable Affects the Process When you unarchive a variable, it is copied to RAM but it is not actually deleted from user data archive memory. Unarchived variables are “marked for deletion,” meaning they will be deleted during the next garbage collection.
v a r ia b le A Sector 1 After you unarchive variables B and C, they continue to take up space.
v a r ia b le D Sector 2 Sector 3 If the MEMORY Screen Shows Enough Free Space Even if the MEMORY screen shows enough free space to archive a variable or store an application, you may still get a Garbage Collect? message or an ERR: ARCHIVE FULL message. Chapter 18: Memory and Variable Management 543 When you unarchive a variable, the Archive free amount increases immediately, but the space is not actually available until after the next garbage collection. If the Archive free amount shows enough available space for your variable, there probably will be enough space to archive it after garbage collection (depending on the usability of any empty blocks). The Garbage Collection Process The garbage collection process: • • Deletes unarchived variables from the user data archive. Rearranges the remaining variables into consecutive blocks.
v a ria b le A v a ria b le D Sector 1 Sector 2 Note: Power loss during garbage collection may cause all memory (RAM and Archive) to be deleted. Using the GarbageCollect Command You can reduce the number of automatic garbage collections by periodically optimizing memory. This is done by using the GarbageCollect command. To use the GarbageCollect command, follow these steps. Chapter 18: Memory and Variable Management 544 1. From the HOME screen, press y N to display the CATALOG. 2. Press † or } to scroll the CATALOG until the selection cursor points to the GarbageCollect command or press G to skip to the commands starting with the letter G. 3. Press Í to paste the command to the HOME screen. 4. Press Í to display the Garbage Collect? message. 5. Select 2:Yes to begin garbage collection. Chapter 18: Memory and Variable Management 545 ERR:ARCHIVE FULL Message
Even if the MEMORY screen shows enough free space to archive a variable or store an application, you may still get an ERR: ARCHIVE FULL message. An ERR:ARCHIVE FULL message may be displayed: • • When there is insufficient space to archive a variable within a continuous block and within a single sector. When there is insufficient space to store an application within a continuous block of memory. When the message is displayed, it will indicate the largest single space of memory available for storing a variable and an application. To resolve the problem, use the GarbageCollect command to optimize memory. If memory is still insufficient, you must delete variables or applications to increase space.

Variables
User Variables The TI84 Plus uses the variables listed below in various ways. Some variables are restricted to specific data types. The variables A through Z and q are defined as real or complex numbers. You may store to them. The TI84 Plus can update X, Y, R, q, and T during graphing, so you may want to avoid using these variables to store nongraphing data. The variables (list names) L1 through L6 are restricted to lists; you cannot store another type of data to them. The variables (matrix names) [A] through [J] are restricted to matrices; you cannot store another type of data to them. The variables Pic1 through Pic9 and Pic0 are restricted to pictures; you cannot store another type of data to them. The variables GDB1 through GDB9 and GDB0 are restricted to graph databases; you cannot store another type of data to them. The variables Str1 through Str9 and Str0 are restricted to strings; you cannot store another type of data to them. Appendix B: Reference Information 627 Except for system variables, you can store any string of characters, functions, instructions, or variables to the functions Yn, (1 through 9, and 0), XnT/YnT (1 through 6), rn (1 through 6), u(n), v(n), and w(n) directly or through the Y= editor. The validity of the string is determined when the function is evaluated. Archive Variables You can store data, programs or any variable from RAM to user data archive memory where they cannot be edited or deleted inadvertantly. Archiving also allows you to free up RAM for variables that may require additional memory. The names of archived variables are preceded by an asterisk indicating they are in user data archive. “*” System Variables The variables below must be real numbers. You may store to them. Since the TI84 Plus can update some of them, as the result of a ZOOM, for example, you may want to avoid using these variables to store nongraphing data. • •
Xmin, Xmax, Xscl, @X, XFact, Tstep, PlotStart, nMin, and other window variables. ZXmin, ZXmax, ZXscl, ZTstep, ZPlotStart, Zu(nMin), and other ZOOM variables. The variables below are reserved for use by the TI84 Plus. You cannot store to them.

TI84 Plus Results There may be a number of reasons that your TI84 Plus is not displaying the expected results; however, the most common solutions involve order of operations or mode settings. Your calculator uses an Equation Operating System (EOS) which evaluates the functions in an expression in the following order: 1. Functions that precede the argument, such as square root, sin(, or log( 2. Functions that are entered after the argument, such as exponents, factorial, r, ¡, and conversions 3. Powers and roots, such as 2^5, or 5*square root(32) 4. Permutations (nPr) and combinations (nCr) 5. Multiplication, implied multiplication, and division 6. Addition and subtraction 7. Relational functions, such as > or < 8. Logic operator and 9. Logic operators or and xor Remember that EOS evaluates from left to right and calculations within parentheses are evaluated first. You should use parentheses where the rules of algebra may not be clear. Appendix B: Reference Information 642 If you are using trigonometric functions or performing polar and rectangular conversions, the unexpected results may be caused by an angle mode setting. The Radian and Degree angle mode settings control how the TI84 Plus interprets angle values. To change the angle mode settings, follow these steps: 1. Press z to display the Mode settings. 2. Select Degree or Radian. 3. Press Í to save the angle mode setting. ERR:DIM ERR:DIM MISMATCH Error Your TI84 Plus displays the ERR:DIM MISMATCH error if you are trying to perform an operation that references one or more lists or matrices whose dimensions do not match. For example, multiplying L1*L2, where L1={1,2,3,4,5} and L2={1,2} produces an ERR:DIM MISMATCH error because the number of elements in L1 and L2 do not match. ERR:INVALID DIM Error The ERR:INVALID DIM error message may occur if you are trying to graph a function that does not involve the stat plot features. The error can be corrected by turning off the stat plots. To turn the stat plots off, press y , and then select 4:PlotsOff. Contrast Feature If the contrast setting is too dark (set to 9) or too dim (set to 0) the unit may appear as if it is malfunctioning or turned off. To adjust the contrast, press and release y, and then press and hold } or †. Appendix B: Reference Information 643 TI84 Plus Identification Code Your graphing calculator has a unique identification (ID) code that you should record and keep. You can use this 14 digit ID to register your calculator at education.ti.com or identify your calculator in the event that it is lost or stolen. A valid ID includes numbers 0 through 9 and the letters A through F. You can view the calculator’s Operating System, Product Number, ID, and Certificate Revision Number from the About screen. To display the About screen, press y L and then select 1:About. Your unique product ID code: _____________________________ Backups Your TI84 Plus is similar to a computer, in that it stores files and Apps that are important to you.

You can search the TICares KnowledgeBase at education.ti.com/support. Appendix B: Reference Information 645 Error Conditions
When the TI84 Plus detects an error, it returns an error message as a menu title, such as ERR:SYNTAX or ERR:DOMAIN. This table contains each error type, possible causes, and suggestions for correction. The error types listed in this table are each preceded by ERR: on your graphing calculator display. For example, you will see ERR:ARCHIVED as a menu title when your graphing calculator detects an ARCHIVED error type.
Error Type ARCHIVED Possible Causes and Suggested Remedies You have attempted to use, edit, or delete an archived variable. For example, the expression dim(L1) produces an error if L1 is archived. You have attempted to archive a variable and there is not enough space in archive to receive it. A function or instruction does not have the correct number of arguments. See Appendix A for function and instruction syntax. Appendix A displays the arguments and punctuation needed to execute the function or instruction. For example, stdDev(list[,freqlist]) is a function of the TI84 Plus. The arguments are shown in italics. The arguments in brackets are optional and you need not type them. You must also be sure to separate multiple arguments with a comma (,). For example, stdDev(list[,freqlist]) might be entered as stdDev(L1) or stdDev(L1,L2) since the frequency list or freqlist is optional. You have attempted to send or receive an application and an error (e.g. electrical interference) has occurred in the transmission. ARCHIVE FULL ARGUMENT BAD ADDRESS Appendix B: Reference Information 646 Error Type BAD GUESS Possible Causes and Suggested Remedies
• • • In a CALC operation, you specified a Guess that is not between Left Bound and Right Bound. For the solve( function or the equation solver, you specified a guess that is not between lower and upper. Your guess and several points around it are undefined. Examine a graph of the function. If the equation has a solution, change the bounds and/or the initial guess. BOUND
• In a CALC operation or with Select(, you defined Left Bound > Right Bound. In fMin(, fMax(, solve(, or the equation solver, you entered lower ‚ upper. BREAK You pressed the É key to break execution of a program, to halt a DRAW instruction, or to stop evaluation of an expression. DATA TYPE You entered a value or variable that is the wrong data type.
• For a function (including implied multiplication) or an instruction, you entered an argument that is an invalid data type, such as a complex number where a real number is required. See Appendix A and the appropriate chapter. In an editor, you entered a type that is not allowed, such as a matrix entered as an element in the stat list editor. See the appropriate chapter. You attempted to store an incorrect data type, such as a matrix, to a list. • • Appendix B: Reference Information 647 Error Type DIM MISMATCH Possible Causes and Suggested Remedies Your calculator displays the ERR:DIM MISMATCH error if you are trying to perform an operation that references one or more lists or matrices whose dimensions do not match. For example, multiplying L1*L2, where L1={1,2,3,4,5} and L2={1,2} produces an ERR:DIM MISMATCH error because the number of elements in L1 and L2 do not match.
• You attempted to divide by zero. This error is not returned during graphing. The TI84 Plus allows for undefined values on a graph. You attempted a linear regression with a vertical line. You specified an argument to a function or instruction outside the valid range. This error is not returned during graphing. The TI84 Plus allows for undefined values on a graph. See Appendix A. You attempted a logarithmic or power regression with a LX or an exponential or power regression with a LY. You attempted to compute GPrn( or GInt( with pmt2 < pmt1. DIVIDE BY 0 • DOMAIN • • • DUPLICATE Duplicate Name You attempted to create a duplicate group name. A variable you attempted to transmit cannot be transmitted because a variable with that name already exists in the receiving unit. You have attempted to run an application with a limited trial period which has expired. EXPIRED Appendix B: Reference Information 648 Error Type Error in Xmit Possible Causes and Suggested Remedies
• The TI84 Plus was unable to transmit an item. Check to see that the cable is firmly connected to both units and that the receiving unit is in receive mode. You pressed É to break during transmission. You attempted to perform a backup from a TI.82 to a TI84 Plus. You attempted to transfer data (other than L1 through L6) from a TI84 Plus to a TI.82. You attempted to transfer L1 through L6 from a TI84 Plus to a TI.82 without using 5:Lists to TI82 on the LINK SEND menu. • • • • ID NOT FOUND This error occurs when the SendID command is executed but the proper graphing calculator ID cannot be found.
• You attempted to use an invalid function in an argument to a function, such as seq( within expression for seq(. The increment in seq( is 0 or has the wrong sign. This error is not returned during graphing. The TI84 Plus allows for undefined values on a graph. The increment in a For( loop is 0. ILLEGAL NEST INCREMENT • • Appendix B: Reference Information 649 Error Type INVALID Possible Causes and Suggested Remedies
• You attempted to reference a variable or use a function where it is not valid. For example, Yn cannot reference Y, Xmin, @X, or TblStart. You attempted to reference a variable or function that was transferred from the TI.82 and is not valid for the TI84 Plus For example, you may have transferred UnN1 to the TI84 Plus from the TI.82 and then tried to reference it. In Seq mode, you attempted to graph a phase plot without defining both equations of the phase plot. In Seq mode, you attempted to graph a recursive sequence without having input the correct number of initial conditions. In Seq mode, you attempted to reference terms other than (nN1) or (nN2). You attempted to designate a graph style that is invalid within the current graph mode. You attempted to use Select( without having selected (turned on) at least one xyLine or scatter plot. The ERR:INVALID DIM error message may occur if you are trying to graph a function that does not involve the stat plot features. The error can be corrected by turning off the stat plots. To turn the stat plots off, press y , and then select 4:PlotsOff. You specified a list dimension as something other than an integer between 1 and 999. You specified a matrix dimension as something other than an integer between 1 and 99. You attempted to invert a matrix that is not square. • • • • • • INVALID DIM • • • • Appendix B: Reference Information 650 Error Type ITERATIONS Possible Causes and Suggested Remedies
• The solve( function or the equation solver has exceeded the maximum number of permitted iterations. Examine a graph of the function. If the equation has a solution, change the bounds, or the initial guess, or both. • • irr( has exceeded the maximum number of permitted iterations.
When computing æ, the maximum number of iterations was exceeded. LABEL MEMORY The label in the Goto instruction is not defined with a Lbl instruction in the program. Memory is insufficient to perform the instruction or function. You must delete items from memory before executing the instruction or function. Recursive problems return this error; for example, graphing the equation Y1=Y1. Branching out of an If/Then, For(, While, or Repeat loop with a Goto also can return this error because the End statement that terminates the loop is never reached.
• You are unable to transmit an item because the receiving unit’s available memory is insufficient. You may skip the item or exit receive mode. During a memory backup, the receiving unit’s available memory is insufficient to receive all items in the sending unit’s memory. A message indicates the number of bytes the sending unit must delete to do the memory backup. Delete items and try again. MemoryFull • Appendix B: Reference Information 651 Error Type MODE Possible Causes and Suggested Remedies You attempted to store to a window variable in another graphing mode or to perform an instruction while in the wrong mode; for example, DrawInv in a graphing mode other than Func.
• • The solve( function or the equation solver did not detect a sign change. You attempted to compute æ when FV, (Ú…PMT), and PV are all ‚ 0, or when FV, (Ú…PMT), and PV are all _ 0. You attempted to compute irr( when neither CFList nor CFO is > 0, or when neither CFList nor CFO is < 0. NO SIGN CHNG • NONREAL ANS In Real mode, the result of a calculation yielded a complex result. This error is not returned during graphing. The TI84 Plus allows for undefined values on a graph. You attempted to enter, or you have calculated, a number that is beyond the range of the graphing calculator. This error is not returned during graphing. The TI84 Plus allows for undefined values on a graph. You attempted to use a system variable inappropriately. See Appendix A. OVERFLOW RESERVED Appendix B: Reference Information 652 Error Type SINGULAR MAT Possible Causes and Suggested Remedies
• • A singular matrix (determinant = 0) is not valid as the argument for L1. The SinReg instruction or a polynomial regression generated a singular matrix (determinant = 0) because it could not find a solution, or a solution does not exist. This error is not returned during graphing. The TI84 Plus allows for undefined values on a graph. SINGULARITY expression in the solve( function or the equation solver contains a singularity (a point at which the function is not defined). Examine a graph of the function. If the equation has a solution, change the bounds or the initial guess or both. You attempted a stat calculation with lists that are not appropriate.
• • • • Statistical analyses must have at least two data points. STAT MedMed must have at least three points in each
partition. When you use a frequency list, its elements must be ‚ 0. (Xmax N Xmin) à Xscl must be‚ 47 for a histogram. STAT PLOT You attempted to display a graph when a stat plot that uses an undefined list is turned on. Appendix B: Reference Information 653 Error Type SYNTAX Possible Causes and Suggested Remedies The command contains a syntax error. Look for misplaced functions, arguments, parentheses, or commas. Appendix A displays the arguments and punctuation needed to execute the function or instruction. For example, stdDev(list[,freqlist]) is a function of the TI84 Plus. The arguments are shown in italics. The arguments in brackets are optional and you need not type them. You must also be sure to separate multiple arguments with a comma (,). For example stdDev(list[,freqlist]) might be entered as stdDev(L1) or stdDev(L1,L2) since the frequency list or freqlist is optional. You requested a tolerance to which the algorithm cannot return an accurate result. You referenced a variable that is not currently defined. For example, you referenced a stat variable when there is no current calculation because a list has been edited, or you referenced a variable when the variable is not valid for the current calculation, such as a after MedMed. Electrical interference caused a link to fail or this graphing calculator is not authorized to run the application. TOL NOT MET UNDEFINED VALIDATION Appendix B: Reference Information 654 Error Type VARIABLE Possible Causes and Suggested Remedies You have tried to archive a variable that cannot be archived or you have tried to unarchive an application or group. Examples of variables that cannot be archived include:
• Real numbers LRESID, R, T, X, Y, Theta, Statistic variables under Vars, STATISTICS menu, Yvars, and the AppIdList. VERSION WINDOW RANGE You have attempted to receive an incompatible variable version from another graphing calculator. A problem exists with the window variables.
• • • • • You defined Xmax Xmin or Ymax Ymin. You defined qmax qmin and qstep > 0 (or vice versa). You attempted to define Tstep=0. You defined Tmax Tmin and Tstep > 0 (or vice versa). Window variables are too small or too large to graph correctly. You may have attempted to zoom in or zoom out to a point that exceeds the TI84 Plus’s numerical range. A point or a line, instead of a box, is defined in ZBox. A ZOOM operation returned a math error. ZOOM • • Appendix B: Reference Information 655 Accuracy Information
Computational Accuracy To maximize accuracy, the TI84 Plus carries more digits internally than it displays. Values are stored in memory using up to 14 digits with a twodigit exponent. • • • You can store a value in the window variables using up to 10 digits (12 for Xscl, Yscl, Tstep, and qstep). Displayed values are rounded as specified by the mode setting with a maximum of 10 digits and a twodigit exponent.
RegEQ displays up to 14 digits in Float mode. Using a fixeddecimal setting other than Float causes RegEQ results to be rounded and stored with the specified number of decimal places. Xmin is the center of the leftmost pixel, Xmax is the center of the nexttotherightmost pixel. (The rightmost pixel is reserved for the busy indicator.) @X is the distance between the centers of two adjacent pixels. • • In Full screen mode, @X is calculated as (Xmax N Xmin) à 94. In GT splitscreen mode, @X is calculated as (Xmax N Xmin) à 46. If you enter a value for @X from the home screen or a program in Full screen mode, Xmax is calculated as Xmin + @X É… 94. In GT splitscreen mode, Xmax is calculated as Xmin + @X É… 46. Ymin is the center of the nexttothebottom pixel; Ymax is the center of the top pixel. @Y is the distance between the centers of two adjacent pixels. Appendix B: Reference Information 656 • In Full screen mode, @Y is calculated as (Ymax N Ymin) à 62. In Horiz splitscreen mode, @Y is calculated as (Ymax N Ymin) à 30. In GT splitscreen mode, @Y is calculated as (Ymax N Ymin) à 50. If you enter a value for @Y from the home screen or a program in Full screen mode, Ymax is calculated as Ymin + @Y É… 62. In Horiz splitscreen mode, Ymax is calculated as Ymin + @Y … 30. In GT splitscreen mode, Ymax is calculated as Ymin + @Y É … 50. • Cursor coordinates are displayed as eightcharacter numbers (which may include a negative sign, decimal point, and exponent) when Float mode is selected. X and Y are updated with a maximum accuracy of eight digits.
minimum and maximum on the CALCULATE menu are calculated with a tolerance of 1âL5; ‰f(x)dx is calculated at 1âL3. Therefore, the result displayed may not be accurate to all eight displayed digits. For most functions, at least five accurate digits exist. For fMin(, fMax(, and fnInt( on the MATH menu and solve( in the CATALOG, the tolerance can be specified. Function Limits

When to Replace the Batteries The TI84 Plus uses five batteries: four AAA alkaline batteries and one SR44SW or 303 silver oxide backup battery. The silver oxide battery provides auxiliary power to retain memory while you replace the AAA batteries. When the battery voltage level drops below a usable level, the TI84 Plus:
Displays this message when you turn on the unit. Displays this message when you attempt to download an application. Message A Message B After Message A is first displayed, you can expect the batteries to function for about one or two weeks, depending on usage. (This oneweek to twoweek period is based on tests with alkaline batteries; the performance of other types of batteries may vary.) If Message B is displayed, you must replace the batteries immediately to successfully download an application. Replace the silver oxide battery every three or four years. Appendix C: Service and Warranty Information 664 Effects of Replacing the Batteries
Do not remove both types of batteries (AAA and silver oxide) at the same time. Do not allow the batteries to lose power completely. If you follow these guidelines and the steps for replacing batteries, you can replace either type of battery without losing any information in memory. Battery Precautions Take these precautions when replacing batteries. • • • • • • • Do not leave batteries within reach of children Do not mix new and used batteries. Do not mix brands (or types within brands) of batteries. Do not mix rechargeable and nonrechargeable batteries. Install batteries according to polarity (+ and N) diagrams. Do not place nonrechargeable batteries in a battery recharger. Properly dispose of used batteries immediately. Do not leave them within the reach of children. Do not incinerate or dismantle batteries. Replacing the Batteries To replace the batteries, follow these steps. Appendix C: Service and Warranty Information 665 1. Turn off the graphing calculator.
