I am sure my calculator can do this, i just cant figure out how. For example, is there a way i can have the calculator work out [(6-x^2)^2-(6-4x+x^2)^2], to get the answer?

Yikes. I'm sorry for the bad information then. I thought the TI-84 was the lowest common denominator with the other algebra capable calculators.

Sorry Juggalomike. ;( - Aug 30th 2009, 12:38 PMQM deFuturo
There is an add-on application you can buy for $50.

Zoom Math 200 - Algebra 1 Program for TI-83 Plus and TI-84 Plus Graphing Calculators

It looks like it at least lets you expand using FOIL; not sure about what else it can do.

Maybe it can help though. - Aug 30th 2009, 01:37 PMJuggalomike
