The [y=] key and the [2<sup>nd</sup>] [y=] or [StatPlot] key. The two major kinds of plots may cause confusion when mixed, so it is best to turn off all unnecessary plots before trying to graph an equation. </p> <p>To turn off all statistical plots, hit [StatPlot] and choose option 4 - PlotsOff. Hit enter to finish the command. </p> <p>To turn off a regular plot, one can either hit [Clear] while on an equation, or arrow to the left so that the cursor is on the equal sign, and press enter to toggle the display of that equation.</p> <h2>Graphing Equations with the Calculator</h2> <p>Equations must be solved explicitly for y before being placed into the calculator. In other words, y must be written as a function of x before entering the equation into the calculator. </p> <p>Sometimes, equations can't be solved for y. Other times, the result is not a function. In this case, you may need two y functions.</p> <p>x<sup>2</sup> + y<sup>2</sup> = 16 has the solutions y = + sqrt(16 - x<sup>2</sup>) and y = - sqrt(16 - x<sup>2</sup>)</p>
