The equation is x^2 + y^2 = 9
There are different ways to do it.
Cartesian method (y = f(x))
You will need two functions because of the limitations of the cartesian coordinate system, obtained by rearranging the circle equation in terms of x:
This one is simple.. , since the radius of a circle is constant.
Use the trigonometric functions and .
You can change the type of graphing method in the setup menu of your TI.
Umm.. whichever, they all produce the same circle. It's up to personal preference and context.
I would personally recommend the parametric method because it's easy to change the center of the circle if you need to (as well as the radius of course).
