If you previously had turned off the calculator by pressing y [OFF], the TI.83 displays the home screen as it was when you last used it and clears any error. If Automatic Power DownTM (APD) had previously turned off the calculator, the TI.83 will return exactly as you left it, including the display, cursor, and any error. To prolong the life of the batteries, APD turns off the TI.83 automatically after about five minutes without any activity. Turning Off the Calculator To turn off the TI.83 manually, press y [OFF]. All settings and memory contents are retained by Constant Memory. Any error condition is cleared. The TI.83 uses four AAA alkaline batteries and has a userreplaceable backup lithium battery (CR1616 or CR1620). To replace batteries without losing any information stored in memory, follow the steps in Appendix B. Batteries 12 Operating the TI83 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 TI.83 has 40 contrast settings, so each number 0 through 9 represents four settings. The TI.83 retains the contrast setting in memory when it is turned off. To adjust the contrast, follow these steps. 1. Press and release the y key. 2. Press and hold or }, which are below and above the contrast symbol (yellow, halfshaded circle). lightens the screen. } darkens the screen.
Note: If you adjust the contrast setting to 0, the display may become completely blank. To restore the screen, press and release y, and then press and hold } until the display reappears. When to Replace Batteries When the batteries are low, a lowbattery message is displayed when you turn on the calculator. To replace the batteries without losing any information in memory, follow the steps in Appendix B. Generally, the calculator will continue to operate for one or two weeks after the lowbattery message is first displayed. After this period, the TI.83 will turn off automatically and the unit will not operate. Batteries must be replaced. All memory is retained.
Note: The operating period following the first lowbattery message could be longer than two weeks if you use the calculator infrequently. Operating the TI83 13 The Display
Types of Displays The TI.83 displays both text and graphs. Chapter 3 describes graphs. Chapter 9 describes how the TI.83 can display a horizontally or vertically split screen to show graphs and text simultaneously. The home screen is the primary screen of the TI.83. On this screen, enter instructions to execute and expressions to evaluate. The answers are displayed on the same screen. When text is displayed, the TI.83 screen can display a maximum of eight 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 Home Screen Displaying Entries and Answers The mode settings control the way the TI.83 interprets expressions and displays answers (page 1.9). 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 scroll the answer.
Entry Answer Returning to the Home Screen Busy Indicator To return to the home screen from any other screen, press y [QUIT]. When the TI.83 is calculating or graphing, a vertical moving line is displayed as a busy indicator in the topright corner of the screen. When you pause a graph or a program, the busy indicator becomes a vertical moving dotted line. 14 Operating the TI83 Display Cursors In most cases, the appearance of the cursor indicates what will happen when you press the next key or select the next menu item to be pasted as a character.
Cursor Appearance Effect of Next Keystroke Entry Solid rectangle A character is entered at the $ cursor; any existing character is overwritten Underline Insert __ A character is inserted in front of the cursor location Second Reverse arrow A 2nd character (yellow on the keyboard) is entered or a 2nd operation is executed Alpha Reverse A An alpha character (green on the keyboard) is entered or SOLVE is executed Full Checkerboard No entry; the maximum characters rectangle are entered at a prompt or memory # is full If you press during an insertion, the cursor becomes an underlined A (A) If you press y during an insertion, the underline cursor becomes an underlined # ( # ). Graphs and editors sometimes display additional cursors, which are described in other chapters. Operating the TI83 15 Entering Expressions and Instructions
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 TI.83, 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 , regardless of the cursor location. The entire expression is evaluated according to Equation Operating System (EOS) rules (page 1.22), and the answer is displayed. Most TI.83 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 TI.83 interprets the entry as implied multiplication of the variables L, O, and G.
Calculate 3.76 (L7.9 + 5) + 2 log 45. 3 76 7 9 y 5 2 45 Multiple Entries on a Line To enter two or more expressions or instructions on a line, separate them with colons ( [:]). All instructions are stored together in last entry (ENTRY; page 1.16). 16 Operating the TI83 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 [EE]. is pasted to the cursor location. 3. If the exponent is negative, press , and then enter the exponent, which can be one or two digits. When you enter a number in scientific notation, the TI.83 does not automatically display answers in scientific or engineering notation. The mode settings (page 1.9) 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 page 1.6. In general, the first letter of each function is lowercase on the TI.83. Most functions take at least one argument, as indicated by an open parenthesis ( ( ) following the name. For example, sin( requires one argument, sin(value). 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). To interrupt a calculation or graph in progress, which would be indicated by the busy indicator, press . When you interrupt a calculation, the menu is displayed. To return to the home screen, select 1:Quit. To go to the location of the interruption, select 2:Goto. When you interrupt a graph, a partial graph is displayed. To return to the home screen, press ` or any nongraphing key. To restart graphing, press a graphing key or select a graphing instruction.

Checking Mode Settings Mode settings control how the TI.83 displays and interprets numbers and graphs. Mode settings are retained by the Constant Memory feature when the TI.83 is turned off. All numbers, including elements of matrices and lists, are displayed according to the current mode settings. To display the mode settings, press z. The current settings are highlighted. Defaults are highlighted below. The following pages describe the mode settings in detail.
Normal Sci Eng Float 0123456789 Radian Degree Func Par Pol Seq Connected Dot Sequential Simul Real a+bi re^qi Full Horiz GT Numeric notation Number of decimal places Unit of angle measure Type of graphing Whether to connect graph points Whether to plot simultaneously Real, rectangular cplx, or polar cplx Full screen, two splitscreen modes Changing Mode Settings To change mode settings, follow these steps. 1. Press or } to move the cursor to the line of the setting that you want to change. 2. Press ~ or  to move the cursor to the setting you want. 3. Press . Setting a Mode from a Program You can set a mode from a program by entering the name of the mode as an instruction; for example, Func or Float. From a blank command line, select the mode setting from the mode screen; the instruction is pasted to the cursor location. Operating the TI83 19 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 E, as in 1.234567E4.
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 12.34567E3.
Note: If you select Normal notation, but the answer cannot display in 10 digits (or the absolute value is less than .001), the TI.83 expresses the answer in scientific notation. 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 . 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) 110 Operating the TI83 Radian, Degree Angle modes control how the TI.83 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. 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. Operating the TI83 111 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.
Note: Regardless of which graphing mode is selected, the TI.83 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, G.T
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). G.T (graphtable) mode displays the current graph on the left half of the screen; it displays the table screen on the right half (Chapter 9). 112 Operating the TI83 Using TI83 Variable Names
Variables and Defined Items On the TI.83 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 TI.83 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). Operating the TI83 113 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. To store a value to a variable from the home screen or a program using the key, begin on a blank line and follow these steps. 1. Enter the value you want to store. The value can be an expression. 2. Press . ! is copied to the cursor location. 3. Press and then the letter of the variable to which you want to store the value. 4. Press . If you entered an expression, it is evaluated. The value is stored to the variable. Displaying a Variable Value To display the value of a variable, enter the name on a blank line on the home screen, and then press . 114 Operating the TI83 Recalling Variable Values
Using Recall (RCL) To recall and copy variable contents to the current cursor location, follow these steps. To leave RCL, press `. 1. Press y RCL. Rcl and the edit cursor are displayed on the bottom line of the screen. 2. Enter the name of the variable in any of five ways. Press and then the letter of the variable. Press y LIST, and then select the name of the list, or press y [Ln]. Press , and then select the name of the matrix. Press to display the VARS menu or ~ to display the VARS Y.VARS menu; then select the type and then the name of the variable or function. Press , and then select the name of the program (in the program editor only). The variable name you selected is displayed on the bottom line and the cursor disappears. 3. Press . The variable contents are inserted where the cursor was located before you began these steps. Note: You can edit the characters pasted to the expression without affecting the value in memory. Operating the TI83 115 ENTRY (Last Entry) Storage Area
Using ENTRY (Last Entry) When you press on the home screen to evaluate an expression or execute an instruction, the expression or instruction is placed in a storage area called ENTRY (last entry). When you turn off the TI.83, ENTRY is retained in memory. To recall ENTRY, press y [ENTRY]. The last entry is pasted to the current cursor location, where you can edit and execute it. On the home screen or in an editor, the current line is cleared and the last entry is pasted to the line. Because the TI.83 updates ENTRY only when you press , you can recall the previous entry even if you have begun to enter the next expression.
57 y [ENTRY]
Accessing a Previous Entry The TI.83 retains as many previous entries as possible in ENTRY, up to a capacity of 128 bytes. To scroll those entries, press y [ENTRY] repeatedly. If a single entry is more than 128 bytes, it is retained for ENTRY, but it cannot be placed in the ENTRY storage area.
1A 2B y [ENTRY] If you press y [ENTRY] after displaying the oldest stored entry, the newest stored entry is displayed again, then the nextnewest entry, and so on. y [ENTRY] 116 Operating the TI83 Reexecuting the Previous Entry After you have pasted the last entry to the home screen and edited it (if you chose to edit it), you can execute the entry. To execute the last entry, press . To reexecute the displayed entry, press again. Each reexecution displays an answer on the right side of the next line; the entry itself is not redisplayed.
0N N1N : N Multiple Entry Values on a Line To store to ENTRY two or more expressions or instructions, separate each expression or instruction with a colon, then press . All expressions and instructions separated by colons are stored in ENTRY. When you press y [ENTRY], all the expressions and instructions separated by colons are pasted to the current cursor location. You can edit any of the entries, and then execute all of them when you press .

Use 8 as your first guess. 8R [:] y [p] R y [ENTRY] y  7 y [INS] 95 Continue until the answer is as accurate as you want. Clearing ENTRY Clear Entries (Chapter 18) clears all data that the TI.83 is holding in the ENTRY storage area. Operating the TI83 117 Ans (Last Answer) Storage Area
Using Ans in an Expression When an expression is evaluated successfully from the home screen or from a program, the TI.83 stores the answer to a storage area called Ans (last answer). Ans may be a real or complex number, a list, a matrix, or a string. When you turn off the TI.83, the value in Ans is retained in memory. You can use the variable Ans to represent the last answer in most places. Press y [ANS] to copy the variable name Ans to the cursor location. When the expression is evaluated, the TI.83 uses the value of Ans in the calculation.
Calculate the area of a garden plot 1.7 meters by 4.2 meters. Then calculate the yield per square meter if the plot produces a total of 147 tomatoes. 1742 147 y [ANS] Continuing an Expression You can use Ans as the first entry in the next expression without entering the value again or pressing y [ANS]. On a blank line on the home screen, enter the function. The TI.83 pastes the variable name Ans to the screen, then the function.

Using a TI83 Menu You can access most TI.83 operations using menus. When you press a key or key combination to display a menu, one or more menu names appear on the top line of the screen. The menu name on the left side of the top line is highlighted. Up to seven items in that menu are displayed, beginning with item 1, which also is highlighted. A number or letter identifies each menu item's place in the menu. The order is 1 through 9, then 0, then A, B, C, and so on. The LIST NAMES, PRGM EXEC, and PRGM EDIT menus only label items 1 through 9 and 0. When the menu continues beyond the displayed items, a down arrow ( $ ) replaces the colon next to the last displayed item. When a menu item ends in an ellipsis, the item displays a secondary menu or editor when you select it. To display any other menu listed on the top line, press ~ or  until that menu name is highlighted. The cursor location within the initial menu is irrelevant. The menu is displayed with the cursor on the first item.

It is pasted to the cursor location. Operating the TI83 121 Equation Operating System (EOSTM)
Order of Evaluation The Equation Operating System (EOS) defines the order in which functions in expressions are entered and evaluated on the TI.83. EOS lets you enter numbers and functions in a simple, straightforward sequence. EOS evaluates the functions in an expression in this order: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Singleargument 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 5x32 Permutations (nPr) and combinations (nCr) Multiplication, implied multiplication, and division Addition and subtraction Relational functions, such as > or Logic operator and Logic operators or and xor Within a priority level, EOS evaluates functions from left to right. Calculations within parentheses are evaluated first. Multiargument functions, such as nDeriv(A2,A,6), are evaluated as they are encountered. 122 Operating the TI83 Implied Multiplication The TI.83 recognizes implied multiplication, so you need not press to express multiplication in all cases. For example, the TI.83 interprets 2p, 4sin(46), 5(1+2), and (25)7 as implied multiplication.
Note: TI.83 implied multiplication rules differ from those of the TI.82. For example, the TI.83 evaluates 12X as (12)X, while the TI.82 evaluates 12X as 1/(2X) (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. 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 and then enter the number. On the TI.83, 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 key for subtraction and the key for negation. If you press to enter a negative number, as in 9 7, or if you press to indicate subtraction, as in 9 7, an error occurs. If you press A B, it is interpreted as implied multiplication (AMB). Operating the TI83 123 Error Conditions
Diagnosing an Error The TI.83 detects errors while performing these tasks. Evaluating an expression Executing an instruction Plotting a graph Storing a value When the TI.83 detects an error, it returns an error message as a menu title, such as ERR:SYNTAX or ERR:DOMAIN. Appendix B describes each error type and possible reasons for the error. If you select 1:Quit (or press y [QUIT] or `), then the home screen is displayed. If you select 2:Goto, then the previous screen is displayed with the cursor at or near the error location.
Note: If a syntax error occurs in the contents of a Y= function during program execution, then the Goto option returns to the Y= editor, not to the program. Correcting an Error To correct an error, follow these steps. 1. Note the error type (ERR:error type). 2. Select 2:Goto, if it is available. The previous screen is displayed with the cursor at or near the error location. 3. Determine the error. If you cannot recognize the error, refer to Appendix B. 4. Correct the expression. 124 Operating the TI83 2

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 5 to enter the probability of heads. Press . Press 40 to enter the number of simulations. Press . 2. Press to evaluate the expression. A list of 40 elements is 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. 3. Press y L1 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). 4. Press ~ or  to view the additional counts in the list. Ellipses (...) indicate that the list continues beyond the screen.
Note: Since randBin( generates random numbers, your list elements may differ from those in the example. 22 Math, Angle, and Test Operations 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. + (Addition), N (Subtraction), (Multiplication), (Division) You can use + (addition, ), N (subtraction, ), (multiplication, ), and (division, ) with real and complex numbers, expressions, lists, and matrices. You cannot use with matrices. valueA+valueB valueAvalueB valueA N valueB valueA valueB Trigonometric Functions You can use the trigonometric (trig) functions (sine, ~; cosine, TM; and tangent, s) 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 [SINL1]; arccosine, y [COSL1]; and arctangent, y [TANL1]) 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. ^ (Power), 2 (Square), ( (Square Root) You can use ^ (power, >), 2 (square, ), and ( (square root, y ) with real and complex numbers, expressions, lists, and matrices. You cannot use ( with matrices. value^power value2

The multiplicative inverse is equivalent to the reciprocal, 1x. valueL1 Math, Angle, and Test Operations 23 log(, 10^(, ln( You can use log( (logarithm, ), 10^( (power of 10, y [10x]), and ln( (natural log, ) with real or complex numbers, expressions, and lists.
log(value) 10^(power) ln(value) e^( (Exponential) e^( (exponential, y ex]) returns the constant e raised to a power. You can use e^( with real or complex numbers, expressions, and lists.
e^(power) e (Constant) e (constant, y [e]) is stored as a constant on the TI83. Press y [e] to copy e to the cursor location. In calculations, the TI83 uses 2.718281828459 for e. L (Negation) M (negation, ) 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. Note: On the TI83, the negation symbol (M) is shorter and higher than the subtraction sign (N), which is displayed when you press . p (Pi) p (Pi, y [p]) is stored as a constant in the TI83. In calculations, the TI83 uses 3.1415926535898 for p. 24 Math, Angle, and Test Operations MATH Operations

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 (see step 3 picture on page 2.9) is displayed when an equation is stored in eqn. To enter an expression in the equation solver, assuming Entering an Expression in the that the variable eqn is empty, follow these steps. Equation Solver 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 Y.VARS menu to the equation solver. Press y [RCL], paste a Y= variable name from the VARS Y.VARS menu, and press . The expression is pasted to the equation solver. The expression is stored to the variable eqn as you enter it. 28 Math, Angle, and Test Operations 3. Press or . The interactive solver editor is displayed. The equation stored in eqn is set equal to zero and displayed on the top line. 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={L199,199}). A $ is displayed in the first column of the bottom line if the editor continues beyond the screen.
Tip: 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 Y.VARS 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. Math, Angle, and Test Operations 29 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 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 TI83 will attempt to display the solution that is closest to your guess. The default guess is calculated as (upper + lower) . 2 210 Math, Angle, and Test Operations 4. Edit bound={lower,upper}. lower and upper are the bounds between which the TI83 searches for a solution. This is optional, but it may help find the solution more quickly. The default is bound={L199,199}. 5. Move the cursor to the variable for which you want to solve and press [SOLVE] (above the key). 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 leftNrt= indicates that the equation has been evaluated at the new value of the variable for which you solved. Math, Angle, and Test Operations 211 Editing an Equation Stored to eqn Equations with Multiple Roots 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. Some equations have more than one solution. You can enter a new initial guess (page 2.10) or new bounds (page 2.11) 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 [SOLVE].
Controlling the Solution for Solver or solve( The TI83 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. 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 L199. The default for upper is 199. solve( is valid only for real numbers.
solve(expression,variable,guess[,{lower,upper}]) Using solve( on the Home Screen or from a Program 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. 212 Math, Angle, and Test Operations MATH NUM (Number) Operations

ComplexNumber The TI83 displays complex numbers in rectangular form and polar form. To select a complexnumber mode, press Modes z, and then select either of the two modes. a+bi (rectangularcomplex mode) re^qi (polarcomplex mode) On the TI83, 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. Radian mode is recommended for complex number calculations. Internally, the TI83 converts all entered trig values to radians, but it does not convert values for exponential, logarithmic, or hyperbolic functions. 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. Note about Radian versus Degree Mode 216 Math, Angle, and Test Operations 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 (page 2.19). In the example below, 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.

Tip: To generate random numbers beyond the range of 0 to 1, you can include rand in an expression. For example, rand5 generates a random number > 0 and < 5. With each rand execution, the TI83 generates the same randomnumber sequence for a given seed value. The TI83 factoryset seed value for rand is 0. To generate a different randomnumber sequence, store any nonzero seed value to rand. To restore the factoryset seed value, store 0 to rand or reset the defaults (Chapter 18).

Getting Started is a fastpaced introduction. Read the chapter for details. Graph a circle of radius 10, centered on the origin in the standard viewing window. To graph this circle, you must enter separate formulas for the upper and lower portions of the circle. Then use ZSquare (zoom square) to adjust the display and make the functions appear as a circle. 1. In Func mode, press o to display the Y= editor. Press y 100 ,, to enter the expression Y=(100NX 2), which defines the top half of the circle. The expression Y=L(100NX 2) defines the bottom half of the circle. On the TI83, you can define one function in terms of another. To define Y2=LY1, press to enter the negation sign. Press ~ to display the VARS Y.VARS menu. Then press to select 1:Function. The FUNCTION secondary menu is displayed. Press 1 to select 1:Y1. 2. Press q 6 to select 6:ZStandard. This is a quick way to reset the window variables to the standard values. It also graphs the functions; you do not need to press s. Notice that the functions appear as an ellipse in the standard viewing window. 3. To adjust the display so that each pixel represents an equal width and height, press q 5 to select 5:ZSquare. The functions are replotted and now appear as a circle on the display. 4. To see the ZSquare window variables, press p and notice the new values for Xmin, Xmax, Ymin, and Ymax. 32 Function Graphing Defining Graphs
TI83Graphing Mode Similarities Chapter 3 specifically describes function graphing, but the steps shown here are similar for each TI83 graphing mode. Chapters 4, 5, and 6 describe aspects that are unique to parametric graphing, polar graphing, and sequence graphing. To define a graph in any graphing mode, follow these steps. Some steps are not always necessary. 1. Press z and set the appropriate graph mode (page 3.4). 2. Press o and enter, edit, or select one or more functions in the Y= editor (page 3.5 and 3.7). 3.

The TI83 Viewing The viewing window is the portion of the coordinate plane defined by Xmin, Xmax, Ymin, and Ymax. Xscl (X scale) Window defines the distance between tick marks on the xaxis. Yscl (Y scale) defines the distance between tick marks on the yaxis. To turn off tick marks, set Xscl=0 and Yscl=0.
Ymax Xscl Xmax Yscl Ymin Xmin Displaying the Window Variables To display the current window variable values, press p. The window editor above and to the right shows the default values in Func graphing mode and Radian angle mode. The window variables differ from one graphing mode to another.
Xres sets pixel resolution (1 through 8) for function graphs only. The default is 1. At Xres=1, functions are evaluated and graphed at each pixel on the xaxis. At Xres=8, functions are evaluated and graphed at every eighth pixel along the xaxis.
Tip: Small Xres values improve graph resolution but may cause the TI83 to draw graphs more slowly. Changing a Window Variable Value To change a window variable value from the window editor, follow these steps. 1. Press or } to move the cursor to the window variable you want to change. 2. Edit the value, which can be an expression. Enter a new value, which clears the original value. Move the cursor to a specific digit, and then edit it. 3. Press , , or }. If you entered an expression, the TI83 evaluates it. The new value is stored.
Note: Xmin<Xmax and Ymin<Ymax must be true in order to graph. Function Graphing 311 Storing to a Window Variable from the Home Screen or a Program To store a value, which can be an expression, to a window variable, begin on a blank line and follow these steps. 1.

Select the window variable to which you want to store a value. The name of the variable is pasted to the current cursor location. 6. Press to complete the instruction. When the instruction is executed, the TI83 stores the value to the window variable and displays the value. @X and @Y The variables @X and @Y (items 8 and 9 on the VARS (1:Window) X/Y secondary menu) define the distance from the center of one pixel to the center of any adjacent pixel on a graph (graphing accuracy). @X and @Y are calculated from Xmin, Xmax, Ymin, and Ymax when you display a graph.
@X = (Xmax N Xmin) 94 @Y = (Ymax N Ymin) 62 You can store values to @X and @Y. If you do, Xmax and Ymax are calculated from @X, Xmin, @Y, and Ymin. 312 Function Graphing Setting the Graph Format
Displaying the Format Settings To display the format settings, press y [FORMAT]. The default settings are highlighted below.
RectGC PolarGC CoordOn CoordOff GridOff GridOn AxesOn AxesOff LabelOff LabelOn ExprOn ExprOff Sets cursor coordinates. Sets coordinates display on or off. Sets grid off or on. Sets axes on or off. Sets axes label off or on. Sets expression display on or off. Format settings define a graph's appearance on the display. Format settings apply to all graphing modes. Seq graphing mode has an additional mode setting (Chapter 6).
Changing a Format Setting To change a format setting, follow these steps. 1. Press , ~, }, and  as necessary to move the cursor to the setting you want to select. 2. Press to select the highlighted setting. RectGC, PolarGC RectGC (rectangular graphing coordinates) displays the cursor location as rectangular coordinates X and Y. PolarGC (polar graphing coordinates) displays the cursor location as polar coordinates R and q. The RectGC/PolarGC setting determines which variables are updated when you plot the graph, move the freemoving cursor, or trace. RectGC updates X and Y; if CoordOn format is selected, X and Y are displayed. PolarGC updates X, Y, R, and q; if CoordOn format is selected, R and q are displayed. Function Graphing 313 CoordOn, CoordOff CoordOn (coordinates on) displays the cursor coordinates at the bottom of the graph. If ExprOff format is selected, the function number is displayed in the topright corner. CoordOff (coordinates off) does not display the function number or coordinates. GridOff, GridOn Grid points cover the viewing window in rows that correspond to the tick marks (page 3.11) on each axis.
GridOff does not display grid points. GridOn displays grid points. AxesOn, AxesOff AxesOn displays the axes. AxesOff does not display the axes. This overrides the LabelOff/ LabelOn format setting.
LabelOff, LabelOn ExprOn, ExprOff
LabelOff and LabelOn determine whether to display labels for the axes (X and Y), if AxesOn format is also selected. ExprOn and ExprOff determine whether to display the Y= expression when the trace cursor is active. This format setting also applies to stat plots. When ExprOn is selected, the expression is displayed in the topleft corner of the graph screen. When ExprOff and CoordOn both are selected, the number in the topright corner specifies which function is being traced. 314 Function Graphing Displaying Graphs
Displaying a New Graph To display the graph of the selected function or functions, press s. TRACE, ZOOM instructions, and CALC operations display the graph automatically. As the TI83 plots the graph, the busy indicator is on. As the graph is plotted, X and Y are updated. While plotting a graph, you can pause or stop graphing. Pausing or Stopping a Graph Press to pause; then press to resume. Press to stop; then press s to redraw. Smart Graph Smart Graph is a TI83 feature that redisplays the last graph immediately when you press s, but only if all graphing factors that would cause replotting have remained the same since the graph was last displayed. If you performed any of these actions since the graph was last displayed, the TI83 will replot the graph based on new values when you press s. Changed a mode setting that affects graphs Changed a function in the current picture Selected or deselected a function or stat plot Changed the value of a variable in a selected function Changed a window variable or graph format setting Cleared drawings by selecting ClrDraw Changed a stat plot definition Function Graphing 315 Overlaying Functions on a Graph On the TI83, you can graph one or more new functions without replotting existing functions. For example, store sin(X) to Y1 in the Y= editor and press s. Then store cos(X) to Y2 and press s again. The function Y2 is graphed on top of Y1, the original function. Graphing a Family of Curves If you enter a list (Chapter 11) as an element in an expression, the TI83 plots the function for each value in the list, thereby graphing a family of curves. In Simul graphingorder mode, it graphs all functions sequentially for the first element in each list, and then for the second, and so on.
{2,4,6}sin(X) graphs three functions: 2 sin(X), 4 sin(X), and 6 sin(X). {2,4,6}sin({1,2,3}X) graphs 2 sin(X), 4 sin(2X), and 6 sin(3X). Note: When using more than one list, the lists must have the same dimensions. 316 Function Graphing Exploring Graphs with the FreeMoving Cursor
FreeMoving Cursor When a graph is displayed, press , ~, }, or to move the cursor around the graph. When you first display the graph, no cursor is visible. When you press , ~, }, or , the cursor moves from the center of the viewing window. As you move the cursor around the graph, the coordinate values of the cursor location are displayed at the bottom of the screen if CoordOn format is selected. The Float/Fix decimal mode setting determines the number of decimal digits displayed for the coordinate values. To display the graph with no cursor and no coordinate values, press ` or . When you press , ~, }, or , the cursor moves from the same position. Graphing Accuracy The freemoving cursor moves from pixel to pixel on the screen. When you move the cursor to a pixel that appears to be on the function, the cursor may be near, but not actually on, the function. The coordinate value displayed at the bottom of the screen actually may not be a point on the function. To move the cursor along a function, use r (page 3.18). The coordinate values displayed as you move the cursor approximate actual math coordinates, *accurate to within the width and height of the pixel. As Xmin, Xmax, Ymin, and Ymax get closer together (as in a ZoomIn) graphing accuracy increases, and the coordinate values more closely approximate the math coordinates. Freemoving cursor "on" the curve Function Graphing 317 Exploring Graphs with TRACE
Beginning a Trace Use TRACE to move the cursor from one plotted point to the next along a function. To begin a trace, press r. If the graph is not displayed already, press r to display it. The trace cursor is on the first selected function in the Y= editor, at the middle X value on the screen. The cursor coordinates are displayed at the bottom of the screen if CoordOn format is selected. The Y= expression is displayed in the topleft corner of the screen, if ExprOn format is selected.
To move the TRACE cursor . . . do this: Moving the Trace Cursor . . . to the previous or next plotted point, . . . five plotted points on a function (Xres affects this), press  or ~. press y  or y ~. . . . to any valid X value on a function, enter a value, and then press . . . . from one function to another, press } or . When the trace cursor moves along a function, the Y value is calculated from the X value; that is, Y=Yn(X). If the function is undefined at an X value, the Y value is blank.
Trace cursor on the curve If you move the trace cursor beyond the top or bottom of the screen, the coordinate values at the bottom of the screen continue to change appropriately.
Moving the Trace Cursor from Function to Function To move the trace cursor from function to function, press and }. The cursor follows the order of the selected functions in the Y= editor. The trace cursor moves to each function at the same X value. If ExprOn format is selected, the expression is updated. 318 Function Graphing Moving the Trace Cursor to Any Valid X Value To move the trace cursor to any valid X value on the current function, enter the value. When you enter the first digit, an X= prompt and the number you entered are displayed in the bottomleft corner of the screen. You can enter an expression at the X= prompt. The value must be valid for the current viewing window. When you have completed the entry, press to move the cursor. Note: This feature does not apply to stat plots. Panning to the Left or Right If you trace a function beyond the left or right side of the screen, the viewing window automatically pans to the left or right. Xmin and Xmax are updated to correspond to the new viewing window. While tracing, you can press to adjust the viewing window so that the cursor location becomes the center of the new viewing window, even if the cursor is above or below the display. This allows panning up and down. After Quick Zoom, the cursor remains in TRACE. When you leave and return to TRACE, the trace cursor is displayed in the same location it was in when you left TRACE, unless Smart Graph has replotted the graph (page 3.15). On a blank line in the program editor, press r. The instruction Trace is pasted to the cursor location. When the instruction is encountered during program execution, the graph is displayed with the trace cursor on the first selected function. As you trace, the cursor coordinate values are updated. When you finish tracing the functions, press to resume program execution.

When will the forest stabilize? With how many trees? 62 Sequence Graphing Defining and Displaying Sequence Graphs
TI83 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 To display the mode screen, press z. To graph sequence functions, you must select Seq graphing mode 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.
TI83 Sequence Functions u, v, and w The TI83 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) 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). Sequence Graphing 63 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. 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 (dot), which shows discrete values. Dot, (line), and (thick) styles are available for sequence graphing. Graph styles are ignored in Web format. The TI83 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 . The status is changed for both the sequence function u(n) and its initial value u(nMin). Selecting and Deselecting Sequence Functions 64 Sequence Graphing 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 [CATALOG] [N]. You can enter the function name from the keyboard. 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. Sequence Graphing 65 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, . . .
Tip: On the TI83, you must type each character of the terms. For example, to enter u(nN1), press y [u] ,, . 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. 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). 66 Sequence Graphing 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 Xmax=10 Xscl=1 Ymin=L10 Ymax=10 Yscl=1 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 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. Sequence Graphing 67 Selecting Axes Combinations

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. The axes format setting affects TRACE. 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, press . 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.
Tip: To move the cursor to a specified n during a trace, enter a value for n, and press . For example, to quickly return the cursor to the beginning of the sequence, paste nMin to the n= prompt and press . TRACE 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 value must be valid for the current viewing window. When you have completed the entry, press to move the cursor. Sequence Graphing 69 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. 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. 610 Sequence Graphing Graphing Web Plots
Graphing a Web Plot To select Web axes format, press y [FORMAT] ~ . 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. 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. Valid Functions for Web Plots Displaying the Graph Screen In Web format, press s to display the graph screen. The TI83: 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). 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 ~. Sequence Graphing 611 Using Web Plots to Illustrate Convergence

What Is a Matrix? A matrix is a twodimensional array. You can display, define, or edit a matrix in the matrix editor. The TI83 has 10 matrix variables, [A] through [J]. You can define a matrix directly in an expression. A matrix, depending on available memory, may have up to 99 rows or columns. You can store only real numbers in TI83 matrices. Before you can define or display a matrix in the editor, you first must select the matrix name. To do so, follow these steps. 1. Press  to display the MATRX EDIT menu. The dimensions of any previously defined matrices are displayed. Selecting a Matrix 2. Select the matrix you want to define. The MATRX EDIT screen is displayed. Accepting or Changing Matrix Dimensions The dimensions of the matrix (row column) are displayed on the top line. The dimensions of a new matrix are 1 1. You must accept or change the dimensions each time you edit a matrix. When you select a matrix to define, the cursor highlights the row dimension. To accept the row dimension, press . To change the row dimension, enter the number of rows (up to 99), and then press . The cursor moves to the column dimension, which you must accept or change the same way you accepted or changed the row dimension. When you press , the rectangular cursor moves to the first matrix element. Matrices 103 Viewing and Editing Matrix Elements
Displaying Matrix Elements After you have set the dimensions of the matrix, you can view the matrix and enter values for the matrix elements. In a new matrix, all values are zero.

Using TI83 List Names L1 through L6 The TI83 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 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. To create a list name on the home screen, follow these steps. 1. Press y [ { ], enter one or more list elements, and then press y [ } ]. Separate list elements with commas. List elements can be real numbers, complex numbers, or expressions. Creating a List Name on the Home Screen 2. Press . 3. Press [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 . 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 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 TI83 memory has space to store. Lists 113 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.
Tip: 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. 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 if necessary; see page 11.16), and then press . 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. 114 Lists 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) Deleting a List from Memory To delete lists from memory, including L1 through L6, use the MEMORY DELETE FROM secondary menu (Chapter 18). Resetting memory restores L1 through L6. Removing a list from the stat list editor does not delete it from memory. You can use lists to graph a family of curves (Chapter 3). Using Lists in Graphing Lists 115 Entering List Names
Using the LIST NAMES Menu To display the LIST NAMES menu, press y [LIST]. Each item is a usercreated list name. 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 [letter from A to Z or q]. Tip: From the top of a menu, press } to move to the bottom. From the bottom, press to move to the top. Note: The LIST NAMES menu omits list names L1 through L6. Enter L1 through L6 directly from the keyboard (page 11.3). 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 precedes a list name when the name is pasted where nonlist name data also is valid, such as the home screen. The 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 [LIST] ~ to display the LIST OPS menu. 2. Select B:, which pastes to the current cursor location. is not always necessary (page 11.16).
Note: You also can paste to the current cursor location from the CATALOG (Chapter 15). 3. Enter the characters that comprise the list name. 116 Lists 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. For example, the first screen below shows that elements are stored to L3, and the formula L3+10 is attached to the list name ADD10. The quotation marks designate the formula to be attached to ADD10. Each element of ADD10 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 ADD10, but did not change L4. This is because the formula L3+10 is attached to ADD10, 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). Lists 117 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 , enter the formula (which must resolve to a list), and press 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 TI83 list name L1 through L6. Press y [LIST] and select a user.created list name from the LIST NAMES menu. Enter a user.created list name directly using (page 11.16). 4. Press . 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. Detaching a Formula from a List You can detach (clear) an attached formula from a list in any of three ways. Enter ""!listname on the home screen. Edit any element of a list to which a formula is attached. Use the stat list editor (Chapter 12).
Note: You also can use ClrList or ClrAllList to detach a formula from a list (Chapter 18). 118 Lists 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 , any expression is evaluated for each list element, and a list is displayed. Use L1L6 or any usercreated list name in an expression. Enter the list elements directly (step 1 on page 11.3). Use y [RCL] 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 . 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. When you use a list and a value with a twoargument function, the value is used with each element in the list. Lists 119 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.
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. Note: SortA( and SortD( are the same as SortA( and SortD( on the STAT EDIT menu (Chapter 12). 1110 Lists Using dim( to Find List Dimensions dim( (dimension) returns the length (number of elements) of list.
dim(list) 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. length!dim(listname) Using dim( to Redimension a List You can use dim with to redimension an existing listname to dimension length from 1 to 999. The elements in the old listname that are within the new dimension are not changed. Extra list elements are filled by 0. Elements in the old list that are outside the new dimension are deleted. length!dim(listname) Fill( 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). Lists 1111 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.
seq(expression,variable,begin,end[,increment]) 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 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 (page 11.13). 1112 Lists 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 (xyLine), and enter the two list names for Xlist: and Ylist: (Chapter 12). 3. Use ZoomStat to plot the data (Chapter 3).

Likewise, if the number of columns in matrix exceeds the number of listname arguments, then Matr4list( ignores extra matrix columns.
Matr4list(matrix,listname1,listname2, . . . ,listname n) & Matr4list( also fills a listname with elements from a specified column# in matrix. To fill a list with a specific column from matrix, you must enter a column# after matrix. Matr4list(matrix,column#,listname) & preceding one to five characters identifies those characters as a usercreated listname. listname may comprise letters, q, and numbers, but it must begin with a letter from A to Z or q.
listname Generally, must precede a usercreated list name when you enter a usercreated list name where other input is valid, for example, on the home screen. Without the , the TI83 may misinterpret a usercreated list name as implied multiplication of two or more characters. need not precede a usercreated list name where a list name is the only valid input, for example, at the Name= prompt in the stat list editor or the Xlist: and Ylist: prompts in the stat plot editor. If you enter where it is not necessary, the TI83 will ignore the entry. 1116 Lists LIST MATH Menu

Getting Started is a fastpaced introduction. Read the chapter for details. A group of students is attempting to determine the mathematical relationship between the length of a pendulum and its period (one complete swing of a pendulum). The group makes a simple pendulum from string and washers and then suspends it from the ceiling. They record the pendulum's period for each of 12 string lengths.* Length (cm) Time (sec) 6.5 11.0 13.2 15.0 18.0 23.1 24.4 26.6 30.5 34.3 37.6 41.5 1. Press z to set Func graphing mode. 2.

Press o to display the Y= editor. If necessary, press ` to clear the function Y1. As necessary, press }, , and ~ to turn off Plot1, Plot2, and Plot3 from the top line of the Y= editor (Chapter 3). As necessary, press , , and to deselect functions. 7. Press y [STAT PLOT] 1 to select 1:Plot1 from the STAT PLOTS menu. The stat plot editor is displayed for plot 1. 8. Press to select On, which turns on plot 1. Press to select " (scatter plot). Press y [L1] to specify Xlist:L1 for plot 1. Press y [L2] to specify Ylist:L2 for plot 1. Press ~ to select + as the Mark for each data point on the scatter plot. 9. Press q 9 to select 9:ZoomStat from the ZOOM menu. The window variables are adjusted automatically, and plot 1 is displayed. This is a scatter plot of the timeversuslength data. Statistics 123 Since the scatter plot of timeversuslength data appears to be approximately linear, fit a line to the data. 10. Press ... ~ 4 to select 4:LinReg(ax+b) (linear regression model) from the STAT CALC menu. LinReg(ax+b) is pasted to the home screen. 11. Press y [L1] y [L2] . Press ~ 1 to display the VARS Y.VARS FUNCTION secondary menu, and then press 1 to select 1:Y1. L1, L2, and Y1 are pasted to the home screen as arguments to LinReg(ax+b). 12. Press to execute LinReg(ax+b). The linear regression for the data in L1 and L2 is calculated. Values for a and b are displayed on the home screen. The linear regression equation is stored in Y1. Residuals are calculated and stored automatically in the list name RESID, which becomes an item on the LIST NAMES menu. 13. Press s. The regression line and the scatter plot are displayed. 124 Statistics The regression line appears to fit the central portion of the scatter plot well. However, a residual plot may provide more information about this fit. 14. Press ... 1 to select 1:Edit. The stat list editor is displayed. Press ~ and } to move the cursor onto
L3. Press y [INS]. An unnamed column is displayed in column 3; L3, L4, L5, and L6 shift right one column. The Name= prompt is displayed in the entry line, and alphalock is on. 15. Press y [LIST] to display the LIST NAMES menu. If necessary, press to move the cursor onto the list name RESID. 16. Press to select RESID and paste it to the stat list editor's Name= prompt. 17. Press . RESID is stored in column 3 of the stat list editor. Press repeatedly to examine the residuals. Notice that the first three residuals are negative. They correspond to the shortest pendulum string lengths in L1. The next five residuals are positive, and three of the last four are negative. The latter correspond to the longer string lengths in L1. Plotting the residuals will show this pattern more clearly. Statistics 125 18. Press y [STAT PLOT] 2 to select 2:Plot2 from the STAT PLOTS menu. The stat plot editor is displayed for plot 2. 19. Press to select On, which turns on plot 2. Press to select " (scatter plot). Press y [L1] to specify Xlist:L1 for plot 2. Press [R] [E] [S] [I] [D] (alphalock is on) to specify Ylist:RESID for plot 2. Press to select > as the mark for each data point on the scatter plot. 20. Press o to display the Y= editor. Press  to move the cursor onto the = sign, and then press to deselect Y1. Press } 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. Notice the pattern of the residuals: a group of negative residuals, then a group of positive residuals, and then another group of negative residuals. 126 Statistics 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 } to turn on plot 1. Press ~ to turn off plot 2. 23. Press q 9 to select 9:ZoomStat from the ZOOM menu. The window variables are adjusted automatically, and the original scatter plot of timeversuslength data (plot 1) is displayed. 24. Press ... ~ [A] to select A:PwrReg from the STAT CALC menu. PwrReg is pasted to the home screen. Press y [L1] y [L2] . Press ~ 1 to display the VARS Y.VARS 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. 25. Press 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. Statistics 127 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  to deselect Y1. Press } to turn off plot 1. Press ~ 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. 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. 128 Statistics 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 Y.VARS FUNCTION secondary menu, and then press 1 to select 1:Y1. Y1 is pasted to the home screen. 31. Press 20 to enter a string length of 20 cm. Press 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 [ENTRY] to recall the Last Entry. Press    5 to change the string length to 50 cm. 33. Press 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). Statistics 129 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 TI83 has six list variables in memory, L1 through L6, to which you can store data for statistical calculations. Also, you can store data to list names that you create (Chapter 11). 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. Setting Up a Statistical Analysis 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. The top line displays list names. L1 through L6 are stored in columns 1 through 6 after a memory reset. The number of the current column is displayed in the topright corner. The bottom line is the entry line. All data entry occurs on this line. The characteristics of this line change according to the current context (page 12.17). The center area displays up to seven elements of up to three lists; it abbreviates values when necessary. The entry line displays the full value of the current element. 1210 Statistics Using the Stat List Editor
Entering a List Name in the Stat List Editor To enter a list name in the stat list editor, follow these steps. 1. Display the Name= prompt in the entry line in either of two ways. Move the cursor onto the list name in the column where you want to insert a list, and then press y [INS]. 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. 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 (page 12.12). 3. Press or to store the list name and its elements, if any, in the current column of the stat list editor. 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. Statistics 1211 Creating a Name in the Stat List Editor To create a name in the stat list editor, follow these steps. 1. Follow step 1 on page 12.11 to 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 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).
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.
Note: To delete a list name from memory, use the MEMORY DELETE:List selection screen (Chapter 18). 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 (page 12.21). Reset all memory (Chapter 18). You can clear all elements from a list in any of five ways. Use ClrList to clear specified lists (page 12.20). In the stat list editor, press } to move the cursor onto a list name, and then press ` . In the stat list editor, move the cursor onto each element, and then press { one by one. 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). Clearing All Elements from a List 1212 Statistics 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 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 . When you enter the first character, the current value is cleared automatically. 3. Edit the element in the entry line. Press one or more keys to enter the new value. When you enter the first character, the current value is cleared automatically. Press ~ to move the cursor to the character before which you want to insert, press y [INS], 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 ` . Note: You can enter expressions and variables for elements. 4. Press , }, 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. Statistics 1213 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. 1. Press ... 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 , and then edit the formula. 4. Press , enter the formula, and press .
Note: If you do not use quotation marks, the TI83 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 symbol (Chapter 11). 5. Press . The TI83 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.
lock symbol 1214 Statistics Using the Stat List Editor When FormulaGenerated Lists Are Displayed When you edit an element of a list referenced in an attached formula, the TI83 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 TI83 takes slightly longer to accept each edit or entry than when no lists with formulas attached are in view.
Tip: 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. 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.
Tip: 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 ` 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). Statistics 1215 Detaching Formulas from List Names
Detaching a Formula from a List Name You can detach (clear) a formula from a list name in any of four ways. In the stat list editor, move the cursor onto the name of the list to which a formula is attached. Press ` . 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 , edit the element, and then press . The element changes, the formula is detached, and the lock symbol disappears. All other list elements remain. Use ClrList (page 12.20). 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. 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 TI83 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 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. Editing an Element of a FormulaGenerated List 1216 Statistics 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.

SortA(, SortD( 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 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.

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). 1220 Statistics 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.
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.
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. Statistics 1221 Regression Model Features
Regression Model Features
STAT CALC menu items 3 through C are regression models (page 12.24). 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). The TI83 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 TI83 variable RegEQ, which is item 1 on the VARS Statistics EQ secondary menu. 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. 1222 Statistics Diagnostics Display Mode When you execute some regression models, the TI83 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 r2 CubicReg QuartReg The r and 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). 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 [CATALOG], and then select the instruction for the mode you want. The instruction is pasted to the home screen. Press to set the mode. When DiagnosticOn is set, diagnostics are displayed with the results when you execute a regression model.

For each STAT CALC menu item, if neither Xlistname nor Ylistname is specified, then the default list names are L1 and L2. 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 FREQ={1,4,1,3}, then the TI83 interprets the instruction 1.Var Stats L1, FREQ 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. 1224 Statistics 1Var Stats 1.Var 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. 1.Var Stats [Xlistname,freqlist] 2Var Stats 2.Var Stats (twovariable statistics) analyzes paired data. Xlistname is the independent variable. Ylistname is the dependent variable.

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 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. A SinReg example is shown on the next page. Statistics 1227 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 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. 1228 Statistics Statistical Variables

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. 1230 Statistics Statistical Plotting
Steps for Plotting You can plot statistical data that is stored in lists. The six Statistical Data in types of plots available are scatter plot, xyLine, histogram, modified box plot, regular box plot, and normal probability Lists 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. "
(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 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 (page 12.20). Statistics 1231 (Histogram) Histogram 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) 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 (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 (page 12.29). 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. 1232 Statistics (Boxplot) Boxplot (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 (page 12.29). 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. (NormProbPlot) NormProbPlot (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 TI83 plots the data on the xaxis and the zvalues on the yaxis. If you select Y, the TI83 plots the data on the yaxis and the zvalues on the xaxis. Statistics 1233 Defining the Plots To define a plot, follow these steps. 1. Press y [STAT PLOT]. 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. Press to select On if you want to plot the statistical data immediately. The definition is stored whether you select On or Off. 4. Select the type of plot. Each type prompts for the options checked in this table.

The stat plot editor for the selected plot is displayed, and the selected name remains highlighted. Turning On and Turning Off Stat Plots PlotsOn and PlotsOff allow you to turn on or turn off stat plots from the home screen or a program. With no plot number, PlotsOn turns on all plots and PlotsOff turns off all plots. With one or more plot numbers (1, 2, and 3), PlotsOn turns on specified plots, and PlotsOff turns off specified plots. PlotsOff [1,2,3] PlotsOn [1,2,3] Note: You also can turn on and turn off stat plots in the top line of the Y= editor (Chapter 3). Statistics 1235 Defining the Viewing Window Stat plots are displayed on the current graph. To define the viewing window, press p and enter values for the window variables. ZoomStat redefines the viewing window to display all statistical data points. When you trace a scatter plot or xyLine, tracing begins at the first element in the lists. When you trace a histogram, the cursor moves from the top center of one column to the top center of the next, starting at the first column. When you trace a box plot, tracing begins at Med (the median). Press  to trace to Q1 and minX. Press ~ to trace to Q3 and maxX. When you press } or to move to another plot or to another Y= function, tracing moves to the current or beginning point on that plot (not the nearest pixel).

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 cm. and a standard deviation of 6.35 cm. (randNorm(165.1,6.35,90) with a seed of 789). Height (in cm.) 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 ... to display the stat list editor. Press } to move the cursor onto L1, and then press y [INS]. The Name= prompt is displayed on the bottom line. The 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. 2. Enter [H] [G] [H] [T] at the Name= prompt, and then press . 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 43 to enter the first height value. As you enter it, it is displayed on the bottom line. Press . 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. 132 Inferential Statistics and Distributions 4. Press ...  to display the STAT TESTS menu, and then press until 8:TInterval is highlighted. 5. Press to select 8:TInterval. The inferential stat editor for TInterval is displayed. If Data is not selected for Inpt:, press  to select Data. Press and [H] [G] [H] [T] at the List: prompt (alphalock is on). Press 99 to enter a 99 percent confidence level at the C.Level: prompt. 6. Press to move the cursor onto Calculate, and then press . 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 cm. and 173.94 cm. This is about a 14.2 cm. 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 cm. (introduction; page 13.2), which is in the calculated interval. The second line gives the mean height of the sample used to compute this interval. The third line gives the sample standard deviation Sx. The bottom line gives the sample size n. Inferential Statistics and Distributions 133 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 of 163.8 and sample standard deviation Sx of 7.1 calculated from the larger random sample (introduction; page 13.2). This time, use the Stats (summary statistics) input option. 7. Press ...  8 to display the inferential stat editor for TInterval. Press ~ to select Inpt:Stats. The editor changes so that you can enter summary statistics as input. 8. Press 163 8 to store 163.8 to . Press 7 1 to store 7.1 to Sx. Press 90 to store 90 to n. 9. Press to move the cursor onto Calculate, and then press to calculate the new 99 percent confidence interval. The results are displayed on the home screen. If the height distribution among a population of women is normally distributed with a mean m of 165.1 cm. and a standard deviation of 6.35 cm., what height is exceeded by only 5 percent of the women (the 95th percentile)? 10. Press ` to clear the home screen. Press y [DISTR] to display the DISTR (distributions) menu. 134 Inferential Statistics and Distributions 11. Press 3 to paste invNorm( to the home screen.

The editors vary according to each test or interval's input requirements. Below is the inferential stat editor for T.Test. Note: When you select the ANOVA( instruction, it is pasted to the home screen. ANOVA( does not have an editor screen. Using an Inferential Stat Editor To use an inferential stat editor, follow these steps. 1. Select a hypothesis test or confidence interval from the STAT TESTS menu. The appropriate editor is displayed. 2. Select Data or Stats input, if the selection is available. The appropriate editor is displayed. 3. Enter real numbers, list names, or expressions for each argument in the editor. 4. Select the alternative hypothesis (, <, or >) against which to test, if the selection is available. 5. Select No or Yes for the Pooled option, if the selection is available. 6. Select Calculate or Draw (when Draw is available) to execute the instruction. When you select Calculate, the results are displayed on the home screen. When you select Draw, the results are displayed in a graph. This chapter describes the selections in the above steps for each hypothesis test and confidence interval instruction. 136 Inferential Statistics and Distributions Select Data or Stats input Select an alternative hypothesis Enter values for arguments Select Calculate or Draw output Selecting Data or Stats Most inferential stat editors prompt you to select one of two types of input. (1.PropZInt and 2.PropZTest, 1.PropZInt and 2.PropZInt, c2.Test, and LinRegTTest do not.) Select Data to enter the data lists as input. Select Stats to enter summary statistics, such as , Sx, and n, as input. To select Data or Stats, move the cursor to either Data or Stats, and then press . Entering the Values for Arguments Inferential stat editors require a value for every argument. If you do not know what a particular argument symbol represents, see the tables on pages 13.26 and 13.27. When you enter values in any inferential stat editor, the TI.83 stores them in memory so that you can run many tests or intervals without having to reenter every value. Selecting an Alternative Hypothesis ( < >) Most of the inferential stat editors for the hypothesis tests prompt you to select one of three alternative hypotheses. The first is a alternative hypothesis, such as mm0 for the Z.Test. The second is a < alternative hypothesis, such as m1<m2 for the 2.SampTTest. The third is a > alternative hypothesis, such as p1>p2 for the 2.PropZTest. To select an alternative hypothesis, move the cursor to the appropriate alternative, and then press . Inferential Statistics and Distributions 137 Selecting the Pooled Option Pooled (2.SampTTest and 2.SampTInt only) specifies whether the variances are to be pooled for the calculation. Select No if you do not want the variances pooled. Population variances can be unequal. Select Yes if you want the variances pooled. Population variances are assumed to be equal. To select the Pooled option, move the cursor to Yes, and then press . Selecting Calculate or Draw for a Hypothesis Test After you have entered all arguments in an inferential stat editor for a hypothesis test, you must select whether you want to see the calculated results on the home screen (Calculate) or on the graph screen (Draw). Calculate calculates the test results and displays the outputs on the home screen. Draw draws a graph of the test results and displays the test statistic and pvalue with the graph. The window variables are adjusted automatically to fit the graph. To select Calculate or Draw, move the cursor to either Calculate or Draw, and then press . The instruction is immediately executed. Selecting Calculate for a Confidence Interval After you have entered all arguments in an inferential stat editor for a confidence interval, select Calculate to display the results. The Draw option is not available. When you press , Calculate calculates the confidence interval results and displays the outputs on the home screen.

Using the TVM Solver The TVM Solver displays the timevalueofmoney (TVM) variables. Given four variable values, the TVM Solver solves for the fifth variable. The FINANCE VARS menu section (page 14.14) describes the five TVM variables (, , PV, PMT, and FV) and P/Y and C/Y.
PMT: END BEGIN in the TVM Solver corresponds to the FINANCE CALC menu items Pmt_End (payment at the end of each period) and Pmt_Bgn (payment at the beginning of each period). To solve for an unknown TVM variable, follow these steps. 1. Press y [FINANCE] to display the TVM Solver. The screen below shows the default values with the fixeddecimal mode set to two decimal places. 2. Enter the known values for four TVM variables.
Note: Enter cash inflows as positive numbers and cash outflows as negative numbers. 3. Enter a value for P/Y, which automatically enters the same value for C/Y; if P/Y C/Y, enter a unique value for C/Y. 4. Select END or BEGIN to specify the payment method. 5. Place the cursor on the TVM variable for which you want to solve. 6. Press [SOLVE]. The answer is computed, displayed in the TVM Solver, and stored to the appropriate TVM variable. An indicator square in the left column designates the solution variable. 144 Financial Functions Using the Financial Functions
Entering Cash Inflows and Cash Outflows When using the TI83 financial functions, you must enter cash inflows (cash received) as positive numbers and cash outflows (cash paid) as negative numbers. The TI83 follows this convention when computing and displaying answers. To display the FINANCE CALC menu, press y [FINANCE].

TVM Solver
TVM Solver displays the TVM Solver (page 14.4). Financial Functions 145 Calculating Time Value of Money (TVM)
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 these functions are not stored to the TVM variables (page 14.14).
Note: To store a value to a TVM variable, use the TVM Solver (page 14.4) or use and any TVM variable on the FINANCE VARS menu (page 14.14). If you enter less than six arguments, the TI83 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
tvm_Pmt computes the amount of each payment. tvm_Pmt[(,,PV,FV,P/Y,C/Y)] Note: In the example above, the values are stored to the TVM variables in the TVM Solver. Then the payment (tvm_Pmt) is computed on the home screen using the values in the TVM Solver. Next, the interest rate is changed to 9.5 to illustrate the effect on the payment amount. 146 Financial Functions tvm_ tvm_ computes the annual interest rate. tvm_[(,PV,PMT,FV,P/Y,C/Y)] tvm_PV tvm_PV computes the present value. tvm_PV[(,,PMT,FV,P/Y,C/Y)] tvm_ tvm_ computes the number of payment periods. tvm_[(,PV,PMT,FV,P/Y,C/Y)] tvm_FV tvm_FV computes the future value. tvm_FV[(,,PV,PMT,P/Y,C/Y)] Financial Functions 147 Calculating Cash Flows
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}
npv(, irr(
npv( (net present value) is the sum of the present values for the cash inflows and outflows.

When you select an item from the menu, the name is pasted to the cursor location on a command line in the program. To return to the program editor without selecting an item, press `.
Controlling Program Flow Program control instructions tell the TI83 which command to execute next in a program. If, While, and Repeat check a defined condition to determine which command to execute next. Conditions frequently use relational or Boolean tests (Chapter 2), as in:
If A<7:A+1!A or
If N=1 and M=1:Goto Z 168 Programming If Use If for testing and branching. If condition is false (zero), then the command immediately following If is skipped. If condition is true (nonzero), then the next command is executed. If instructions can be nested.
:If condition :command (if true) :command Program Output If.Then 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) :End :command Program Output Programming 169 IfThenElse Else following If.Then 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 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 1610 Programming 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) :command (until condition is true) :End :command Program Output Programming 1611 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 If.Then group and each If.Then.Else group. Pause suspends execution of the program so that you can see answers or graphs. During the pause, the pause indicator is on in the topright corner. Press to resume execution. Pause 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.
Pause [value] Program Output 1612 Programming 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.
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. Programming 1613 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.
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. 1614 Programming prgm Use prgm to execute other programs as subroutines (page 16.22). 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 (page 16.7). Return Return quits the subroutine and returns execution to the calling program (page 16.22), 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.
Stop
Stop stops execution of a program and returns to the home screen. Stop is optional at the end of a program. DelVar deletes from memory the contents of variable. DelVar variable DelVar GraphStyle( GraphStyle( designates the style of the graph to be drawn. function# is the number of the Y= function name in the current graphing mode. graphstyle is a number from 1 to 7 that corresponds to the graph style, as shown below. 1 = (line) 2 = (thick) 3 = (shade above) 4 = (shade below) 5 = (path) 6 = (animate) 7 = (dot) GraphStyle(function#,graphstyle) For example, GraphStyle(1,5) in Func mode sets the graph style for Y1 to (path; 5). Not all graph styles are available in all graphing modes. For a detailed description of each graph style, see the Graph Styles table in Chapter 3.

Resolved Differences between the TI82 and TI83 Generally, you can transmit items to a TI83 from a TI82, but differences between the two products may affect some transmitted data. This table shows differences for which the software built into the TI83 automatically adjusts when a TI83 receives TI82 data.
TI.82 nMin nStart Un Vn UnStart VnStart
TblMin TI.83
PlotStart nMin u v u(nMin) v(nMin) TblStart For example, if you transmit from a TI82 to a TI83 a program that contains nStart on a command line and then display the program on the receiving TI83, you will see that nMin has automatically replaced nStart on the command line.
Unresolved Differences between the TI82 and TI83 The software built into the TI83 cannot resolve some differences between the TI82 and TI83, which are described below. You must edit the data on the TI83 after you transmit to account for these differences, or the TI83 will misinterpret the data. The TI83 reinterprets TI82 prefix functions to include open parentheses, which may add extraneous parentheses to transmitted expressions. For example, if you transmit sin X+5 from a TI82 to a TI.83, the TI83 reinterprets it as sin(X+5. Without a closing parenthesis after X, the TI83 interprets this as sin(X+5), not the sum of 5 and sin(X). If a TI82 instruction that the TI83 cannot translate is transmitted, the ERR:INVALID menu is displayed when the TI83 attempts to execute the instruction. For example, on the TI82, the character group Un1 is pasted to the cursor location when you press y [UnN1]. The TI83 cannot directly translate Un1 to the TI83 syntax u(nN1), so the ERR:INVALID menu is displayed.
Note: TI83 implied multiplication rules differ from those of the TI.82. For example, the TI83 evaluates 12X as (12)X, while the TI82 evaluates 12X as 1(2X) (Chapter 2). Communication Link 199 Backing Up Memory
Memory Backup To copy the exact contents of memory in the sending TI83 to the memory of the receiving TI83, put the other unit in receive mode. Then, on the receiving unit, select C:Back Up from the LINK SEND menu. Warning: C:Back Up overwrites the memory in the receiving unit; all information in the memory of the receiving unit is lost.
Note: If you do not want to do a backup, select 2:Quit to return to the LINK SEND menu. Select 1:Transmit to begin transmission. Receiving Unit As a safety check to prevent accidental loss of memory, the message WARNING . Backup is displayed when the receiving unit receives notice of a backup. To continue with the backup process, select 1:Continue. The backup transmission begins. To prevent the backup, select 2:Quit.
Note: If a transmission error is returned during a backup, the receiving unit is reset. Memory Backup Complete When the backup is complete, both the sending calculator and receiving calculator display a confirmation screen. 1910 Communication Link A

User Variables The TI.83 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 TI.83 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. 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. System Variables The variables below must be real numbers. You may store to them. Since the TI.83 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 TI.83. You cannot store to them.

This section contains statistics formulas for the Logistic and SinReg regressions, ANOVA, 2.SampTest, and 2.SampTTest.
Logistic The logistic regression algorithm applies nonlinear recursive leastsquares techniques to optimize the following cost function: J= 1 + ae
i =1 N c
 bxi 2  yi which is the sum of the squares of the residual errors, where: x = the independent variable list y = the dependent variable list N = the dimension of the lists This technique attempts to estimate the constants a, b, and c recursively to make J as small as possible.
SinReg The sine regression algorithm applies nonlinear recursive leastsquares techniques to optimize the following cost function: J= [a sin(bx + c) + d  y ]
i i i =1 N 2 which is the sum of the squares of the residual errors, where: x = the independent variable list y = the dependent variable list N = the dimension of the lists This technique attempts to recursively estimate the constants a, b, c, and d to make J as small as possible. A50 Tables and Reference Information ANOVA( The ANOVA statistic is: = Factor MS Error MS The mean squares (MS) that make up are: Factor MS = Error MS = Factor SS Factor df Error SS Error df The sum of squares (SS) that make up the mean squares are: Factor SS = n (x  x)
i i i =1 I i i =1 I 2 Error SS = (n  1)Sx 2 i The degrees of freedom df that make up the mean squares are: Factor df = I  1 = numerator df for Error df = (n  1) = denominator df for i i =1 I where: I xi Sxi ni x = = = = = number of populations the mean of each list the standard deviation of each list the length of each list the mean of all lists Tables and Reference Information A51 2SampTest Below is the definition for the 2.SampTest. Sx1, Sx2 = Sample standard deviations having n11 and n21 degrees of freedom df, respectively. Sx1 2 = statistic = Sx 2 df(x, n11, n21) = pdf( ) with degrees of freedom df, n11, and n21 p = reported p value

When to Replace the Batteries The TI.83 uses five batteries: four AAA alkaline batteries and one lithium battery. The lithium battery provides auxiliary power to retain memory while you replace the AAA batteries. When the battery voltage level drops below a usable level, the TI.83 displays this message when you turn on the unit. After this message 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 kinds of batteries may vary.) The lowbattery message continues to be displayed each time you turn on the unit until you replace the batteries. If you do not replace the batteries within about two weeks, the calculator may turn off by itself or fail to turn on until you install new batteries. Replace the lithium battery every three or four years.
Effects of Replacing the Batteries Do not remove both types of batteries (AAA and lithium auxiliary) at the same time. Do not allow the batteries to lose power completely. If you follow these guidelines and the steps for replacing batteries on page B.3, you can replace either type of battery without losing any information in memory. Take these precautions when replacing batteries. 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 batteries. Battery Precautions B2 General Information Replacing the Batteries To replace the batteries, follow these steps. 1. Turn off the calculator. Replace the slide cover over the keyboard to avoid inadvertently turning on the calculator. Turn the back of the calculator toward you. 2. Hold the calculator upright. Place your thumb on the oval indentation on the battery cover. Push down and toward you to slide the cover about inch (6 mm). Lift off the cover to expose the battery compartment. Note: To avoid loss of information stored in memory, you must turn off the calculator. Do not remove the AAA batteries and the lithium battery simultaneously. 3. Replace all four AAA alkaline batteries at the same time. Or, replace the lithium battery. To replace the AAA alkaline batteries, remove all four discharged AAA batteries and install new ones according to the polarity (+ and N) diagrams in the battery compartment. To remove the lithium battery, place your index finger on the battery. Insert the tip of a ballpoint pen (or similar instrument) under the battery at the small opening provided in the battery compartment. Carefully pry the battery upward, holding it with your thumb and finger. (There is a spring that pushes against the underside of the battery.) Install the new battery, + side up, by inserting the battery and gently snapping it in with your finger. Use a CR1616 or CR1620 (or equivalent) lithium battery. 4. Replace the battery compartment cover. Turn the calculator on and adjust the display contrast, if necessary (step 1; page B.4). General Information B3 In Case of Difficulty
Handling a Difficulty To handle a difficulty, follow these steps. 1. If you cannot see anything on the screen, the contrast may need to be adjusted. To darken the screen, press and release y, and then press and hold } until the display is sufficiently dark. To lighten the screen, press and release y, and then press and hold until the display is sufficiently light. 2. If an error menu is displayed, follow the steps in Chapter 1. Refer to pages B.5 through B.9 for details about specific errors, if necessary. 3. If a checkerboard cursor ( # ) is displayed, then either you have entered the maximum number of characters in a prompt, or memory is full. If memory is full, press y [MEM] 2 to select 2:Delete, and then delete some items from memory (Chapter 18). 4. If the busy indicator (dotted line) is displayed, a graph or program has been paused; the TI.83 is waiting for input. Press to continue or press to break. 5. If the calculator does not seem to work at all, be sure the batteries are fresh and that they are installed properly. Refer to battery information on pages B.2 and B.3. B4 General Information Error Conditions
When the TI.83 detects an error, it displays ERR:message and an error menu. Chapter 1 describes the general steps for correcting errors. This table contains each error type, possible causes, and suggestions for correction.
Error Type
ARCHIVED VAR Possible Causes and Suggested Remedies ARGUMENT BAD GUESS BOUND A function or instruction is archived and therefore cannot be executed or edited. Use the unarchive command to unarchive the variable before using it. A function or instruction does not have the correct number of arguments. See Appendix A and the appropriate chapter. 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. 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. You pressed the key to break execution of a program, to halt a DRAW instruction, or to stop evaluation of an expression. 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 to an incorrect data type, such as a matrix, to a list. You attempted to perform an operation that references more than one list or matrix, but the dimensions do not match. You attempted to divide by zero. This error is not returned during graphing. The TI.83 allows for undefined values on a graph. You attempted a linear regression with a vertical line. BREAK DATA TYPE DIM MISMATCH DIVIDE BY 0 General Information B5 Error Type
DOMAIN Possible Causes and Suggested Remedies You specified an argument to a function or instruction outside the valid range. This error is not returned during graphing. The TI.83 allows for undefined values on a graph. See Appendix A and the appropriate chapter. 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. A variable you attempted to transmit cannot be transmitted because a variable with that name already exists in the receiving unit. The TI.83 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 to break during transmission. You attempted to perform a backup from a TI.82 to a TI.83. You attempted to transfer data (other than L1 through L6) from a TI.83 to a TI.82. You attempted to transfer L1 through L6 from a TI.83 to a TI.82 without using 5:Lists to TI82 on the LINK SEND menu. 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 TI.83 allows for undefined values on a graph. The increment in a For( loop is 0. 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 TI.83. For example, you may have transferred UnN1 to the TI.83 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. Duplicate Name Error in Xmit ILLEGAL NEST INCREMENT INVALID B6 General Information Error Type
INVALID (cont.) Possible Causes and Suggested Remedies 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. You specified dimensions for an argument that are not appropriate for the operation. 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. 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 , the maximum number of iterations was exceeded. 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 (Chapter 18) 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. INVALID DIM ITERATIONS LABEL MEMORY General Information B7 Error Type
MemoryFull Possible Causes and Suggested Remedies 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. 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 when FV, (PMT), and PV are all , 0, or when FV, (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. In Real mode, the result of a calculation yielded a complex result. This error is not returned during graphing. The TI.83 allows for undefined values on a graph. You attempted to enter, or you have calculated, a number that is beyond the range of the calculator. This error is not returned during graphing. The TI.83 allows for undefined values on a graph. You attempted to use a system variable inappropriately. See Appendix A. 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 TI.83 allows for undefined values on a graph. MODE NO SIGN CHNG NONREAL ANS OVERFLOW RESERVED SINGULAR MAT B8 General Information Error Type
SINGULARITY Possible Causes and Suggested Remedies 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. Med.Med must have at least three points in each partition. When you use a frequency list, its elements must be , 0. (Xmax N Xmin) Xscl must be 47 for a histogram. You attempted to display a graph when a stat plot that uses an undefined list is turned on. The command contains a syntax error. Look for misplaced functions, arguments, parentheses, or commas. See Appendix A and the appropriate chapter. 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 Med.Med. 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 TI.83's numerical range. A point or a line, instead of a box, is defined in ZBox. A ZOOM operation returned a math error. STAT STAT PLOT SYNTAX TOL NOT MET UNDEFINED WINDOW RANGE ZOOM General Information B9 Accuracy Information
Computational Accuracy To maximize accuracy, the TI.83 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. Graphing Accuracy 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) 94. In G.T splitscreen mode, @X is calculated as (Xmax N Xmin) 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 ... 94. In G.T splitscreen mode, Xmax is calculated as Xmin + @X ... 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. In Full screen mode, @Y is calculated as (Ymax N Ymin) 62. In Horiz splitscreen mode, @Y is calculated as (Ymax N Ymin) 30. In G.T splitscreen mode, @Y is calculated as (Ymax N Ymin) 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 ... 62. In Horiz splitscreen mode, Ymax is calculated as Ymin + @Y ... 30. In G.T splitscreen mode, Ymax is calculated as Ymin + @Y ... 50. B10 General Information 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 1EL5; f(x)dx is calculated at 1EL3. 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.
