SOURCE: ERR: INVALID DIM displayed on graphing calculator

The solution for the problem is simple. When you use the calculator to create statistical graphs, it is configured to accommodate the specificities of the problem. However that configuration remains set after you terminate the problem. So when you try to use the calculator to do other problems it uses the stored configuration parameters, which may be incompatible with the new problem. In particular, list of paired-variables must have the same dimensions: There must be the same number of elements in each list.

To make a long story short, you should make it a habit to reset the Ram every time you want to do a new problem. If for reasons of you own you do not want to reset the Ram, you can prevent this type of errors from occurring. This is how you do it.

  1. Press [2nd][Y=] (STATPLOT)
  2. Choose option [4:PlotsOff][ENTER]. Screen displays Done
  3. Press [2nd][0] (CATALOG)
  4. Press [PGRM] (C) to jump to first command that starts with c.
  5. Use arrow to scroll down to ClrAllLists, select it [ENTER]
  6. Calculator displays Done
  7. Start the new problem
To reset the Ram press [2nd][+] (MEM) [7:Reset][1:All Ram][2:Reset]. Press [CLEAR] to erase the Ram Cleared message.

SOURCE: ERR:INVALID DIM

You're probably trying to graph a function that does not involve stat plot features. You can correct this by turning off the stat plot features. Press "2ND" "STAT PLOT" and then select 4:PlotsOff.

Whenever I try to plot anything on the graph it says: ERR: INVALID DIM I need to graph problems such as x+1 over 2 or 1+5/x over 25/x squared.


You're trying to graph a function that does not involve stat plot features, while the calculator is expecting them. You can correct this by turning off the stat plot features. Press "2ND" "STAT PLOT" and then select 4:PlotsOff.

I try to scroll right on the MATH menu and it isn't scrolling through to give me options for decimal to fraction.


First, make sure you're pressing 2nd [MATH] F5 to get to the MATH MISC menu. To see additional items on the menu (in effect, to scroll through it) press the MORE key (just to the left of the left-arrow key), not the arrow keys.

I need help with graphing everytime i try to draw a graph it comes up with this ERR:INVALID DIM what does that mean


It means that your Xmin or Xmax is messed up. it often shows up when you are plotting somethings (histogram for exanple) and you don't have enough X or Y range to fit all the points in it. it also happens when you are multiplying matricies without using the right dimensions. ERR:INVALID DIM just means your dimension is invalid.

Graph and trace buttons don't work


This is probably because you have the stat plot on. You would need to go to y= and then go to the top where it says stat plot 1 and un highlight it if it is highligted. That should fix your problem.
