I just cracked my College Algebra textbook...started reading it, cruising along thinking I'm doing fine...until I have to use that &(*%^$^(*)&^^&**&*( scientific calculator. Do you think ANYWHERE in the 2 inch thick instuction book that came with the flipping thing that there's anything about HOW to do a "ZDecimal" ? it defines it. Doesn't tell me how the heck to do it

I am in so much trouble....


dh is in the middle of his college algebra class, he knows how to use this stinking thing but he's doing the Army thing until next week

Usually the functions are listed on the quick reference card--what brand did you buy?

It's a Texas Instruments.

I did end up figuring it out. There are instructions in the Appendix of my math book of all places. There are notes in the margins telling me where to find instructions on each of the functions But it would be nice if they had those in the instructions of the calculator book! Jeesh!

Now I just need to find out what they mean when they say "justify your graph"

Love TI!! That's what I use.

I think justification is providing the equation for the line or function of your graph.

But they are qualitative graphs
