How do you enter cube roots and radicals into the TI-89? I can't really give an example using the computer keyboard, so an example is on the following page:

would be

Code:`(6x+9)^(1/3)+8`

Code:`(abc)^(1/n)`

Hey thanks a lot for your help. Could you tell me how to enter the three problems on the page below on my TI-89

Example

Thanks,

Here's one example. The others are entered the same.

Thanks for your response.

How do you enter the 2nd and 3rd ones:Example

I was looking for how to enter the problems instead of the answers.

Thanks,

Hello,

I'm not quite certain what you mean here.

From the screenshot you can see how to enter a term into the TI89. There are only a few rules you have to use strictly:

1. All parts which belongs together must be put into brackets: Denominators, numerators, radicands, ...

2. Superflues brackets are suppressed by the TI89 automatically. So it is better to use an additional pair of brackets.

3. A leading negative sign is connected to the key . If you use the normal operation sign for subtraction you'll get an error message.

4. I've attached 2 screenshots. Compare the input line and the result on the screen. - July 20th 2007, 12:16 AMcachemony
Thanks a lot for all the help from everyone.

I need help with a few more....how would I enter the following into my TI-89: How do you enter logarithmic functions?

1. 4loga-(-x-4) - 3loga(x+4)

2. logx100 + loga0.1

3. When I try to graph the following it says I have Undefined varibales. What does that mean? how do I graph the following:

(x+7)² - (y+2)² = 36

Thank You.

Hello Noah,

the TI89 has one build-in logarithmic function: The ln-function which you find with + . If you want to calculate logarithms to another base you have to use the base-change-formula:

to #1.: I assume that you mean:

. If so then type:

4*( + -(x-4)) / + a)-3*( + x+4) / + a)

But unfortunately your TI89 will not simplify or transform this term.

to #2.: Are you sure that there isn't a typo?

to #3.: Your TI89 is set to function mode (I assume). The calculator is not able to handle relations in multiple variables. To graph this hyperbola you first calculate equations of functions by solving the original relation for y. You'll get 4 different equations. (see attachment HYP2FUNC1)

Copy the results into the input line and store the different functions into the y= editor by using the key.

In the WINDOW editor Use the settings

xmin = -16

xmax = 8

xscl = 1

ymin = -8

ymax=8

yscl=1

xres=1

Here it is necessary to set xres=1 because otherwise the gap between the different graphs will be to large. - July 20th 2007, 09:36 AMgalactus
You can use 'log', but you have to type it in. There is no 'log' key.

How do I get my TI-89 to divide this:

**(6x3 - x2 - 5x + 4) ÷ (3x - 2)**

When its entered, it just displays it as a fraction.

How do I get it to perform the division?

Thanks,

Noah - July 22nd 2007, 11:05 PMearboth
Hello,

if the build-in program can't simplify the quotient it is only repeated.

To do the synthetic division you have to use the command

**propFrac(**(6x^3-x^2-5x+4)/(3x-2))

You get the result:

You find the command**propFrac(**at the menu*F2 Algebra #7*

By the way: Please do yourself and do us a favour and start a new thread if you have a new problem. Otherwise you risk that nobody at the forum notices that you need help. - September 8th 2007, 07:29 PMsaber3469square roots
