    ti-83 sin graph problem

    Hi;
    When I graph sin(x) I can't get the y values to come out right ie give a zero value
    when on the x coordinate using trace.

    That sounds like a resolution issue. If you zoom in to the root, you might get closer to what you want.

    Thanks.
    Sometimes you can fiddle with the limits of the window. Instead of going from 0 to 10, say, you go from 0 to 2pi. The tracer might be sensitive to that, and go along the curve in increments of, say, pi/32. I don't know. Other than my two posts, I know of no way to do what you want. Zooming in on graphs is a standard trick.
