Usually ypu know the equation then graph it. However in doing statistics, it may appear that the curve of best for a scatter plot could be could an exponential. In that case you use the STAT application to enter the x-data in List 1 and the y-data in List 2. When you finish press the f1 key to select Graph1. You should also verify by Pressing F6:set that the graph type is set to scatter, and that List 1 contains the x-data and List 2, the y-data. After you verify that all is in order press the F1: Graph 1 key.
As the graph is displayed you will see several tabs with various regression models. Pan thr tabs to the right to get to F2:EXP. Select it.
The equation is displayed on the next screen. At the bottom of the screen you see two tabs COPY and DRAW. Press f5:Copy to copy the equation in one of the y= functions.
Press Draw and you will see the curve of best fit superposed on the scatter plot points.

SORRY for the nonsense.

Hello,
Turn calculator ON. If you do not see several icons press [MENu].
Use arrow to select the [GRAPH] application and press [EXE].
In the entry screen, the line with Y1= is highlighted. If it is not, use arrow to highlight it.
Press the right arrow, the highlighting disappears leaving you with Y1= and the blinking cursor.
At the position of the cursor enter 5 [X, theta,T] key under the [ALPHA]. On the screen appears 5X, complete you equation +2.
Press [EXE] to store function.
If you want to draw other functions, it is time to do so on that screen.
When done press [F6:Draw}.
If the screen does not show a lot of the function, you can use the arrow keys to pan the graph.
You can also press [SHIFT][V-Window] to set the window limits.

Hope it helps.

To enter powers of trigonometric functions you must enclose the functions in parentheses and then apply the exponent to the whole. For example X1t =(sin T)^3 , Y1t=(cos T)^3 will give you a shape similar to a rhombus with concave sides. The symbol ^syands for the operation of raising to a power. The key is the one with the caret symbol ^ , and it is wedged between the xsqure and EXIT keys (third row of keys).
As regards the cotangent, use the equivalent definition cot(X)=1/tan(X).

The function y= 3^x-4^x -1 (3 to the power of x, etc..) is a well-behaved function that should not give you any problem. It is a decreasing exponential (power function). Reset Calculator to defaults and try again. Leave Xscale at 1. Jun 09, 2012 | Texas Instruments TI-83 Plus Calculator

### How to use casio calculator in solving regression problems

I am sorry but I will have to assume that you know how to enter the data.

Once you enter your data [MENU][STAT], press [F1:Graph], select Gph1, Gph2, or Gph3. Once the graph of the experimental data is drawn, you will have access to the diverse regression models. Your choices are [X:Linear] [Med-Med], [Quadratic :X^2] [Cubic;X^3] [Quartic: X^2]. Press [F6] to scroll right to access the others: [Logarithmic:LOG], [Exponential :EXP], [Power :Pwr] and [Sinusoidal: Sin]

After you select a model and press [EXE], the screen displays the equation and its various coefficients. On that same screen, you have a menu option [F6:Draw]. If you select it, the regression curve will be drawn on the same screen as your statistical graph. This allows you to judge if the fit is good. If it is not, you have the option to choose another model.
The other option [F5:Copy] allows you to save the regression equation in the Y1, Y2, etc. variables.

### Won't Graph Exponential Function

Ok, try these two things and you should be just fine.
1.) Check your range for your graph. It is possible that the range you are using isnt large enough to show the curve. Also try using Z-fit vs Z-st. These are options that your calculator will give you once the equation is graphed.
2.) Place a parenthesis around the 2x, make sure that you and the calculator are both using the same order of operations. This move mill ensure that the calculator will multiply the variable, x, by two and then do the exponential.
This should do it!
Happy Graphing!

### How to calculate the coefficient of linear correlation using casio cfx-9850 Ga plus

Although the coefficient of correlation is well defined for a few regression models, you do not calculate it directly because your calculator does that for you.
I could just tell you that it is displayed along with the statistical results (equation of best fitting curve, ) but if you do not know how to do that you will just shoot my post. If you know how to do a linear regression, stop right here and ignore what follows.

### Functions?

Hello,
I am afraid I am missing something here. You can start with the expression of a function and have it graphed on a graphing calculator.
Or you can enter the experimental data, represent them on a graphing calculator and ask the calculator to find the curve that fits the data best, and once that curve is found to give you the equation.
However your calculator does not have the graphing capabilities. All you can do is enter the data and ask the calculator to perform a regression to obtain the expression of the function that fits best.

The available options for the calculator are accessible by pressing [MODE][3:Stat] and
2. A+BX linear
4: ln X logarithmic
5: e^X exponential
6:A*B^X power
7: A*X^B Polynomial
8: 1/X

Hope it helps.

### Graphing

The first solution will allow you to watch your calculator graph two equations simultaneously rather than finishing one before graphing the next; it won't solve the problem of having the calculator unselect one equation when you select a second. To fix that problem, try the following:

In order to select additional graphs, the Transformation Graphing App will need to be uninstalled from the TI-83 Plus Family and TI-84 Plus Family. Uninstalling the App does not erase it from the calculator, it disables it from interfering with the normal graphing modes. Below are the steps to successfully uninstall the App.
• Press [APPS] key
• Select Transfrm from the menu
• Press 1:Uninstall
