Dear forum members,

I was wondering, how does one enter the equation for for example descartes folium, if one wants to graph it on TI-84 plus?

Thank you in advance.

Not much chance using the Cartesian form unless you want to solve for y and get the three different branches using the cubic formula .... Even

*then*there are certain problems ....

I'd suggest going to parametric function mode and using the parametric equations. Those equations can be found here. - Mar 1st 2008, 05:35 AMCoach
Thank you so much!

So in the parametic and polar equations I just choose any numbers for a and b? - Mar 1st 2008, 06:12 AMearboth
