Question about Texas Instruments TI-86 Calculator

1 Answer

I was told that, to do binomial distributions on a ti-86, I would need to hit 2nd Math, then More, and I should see something that says STAT and go from there to get to DIST and Binomi. I see nothing beyond INTER when I do this. I cannot even find STAT using this method. Is my calculator missing a program? Please help!

Sorry, but you information is wrong, to find the binomial distribution use the PROB menu not the STAT menu. Its name is randBi
[2nd][MATH][F2:PROB] scroll right.
Hope it helps.

Well it seems that you are graphing stat points and forgot to turn them off. This can be easily fixed by going to 2nd and Stat Plot then make sure all the stat plots are turned off. This should solve your issue.

Invalid dimension error on my TI-83 plus?

This is a pretty vague problem but not much of a problem. Your actualy plotting device of your stat plot is under your "y=". But before you do that you need to hit the stat button right next to the blue apps button. Then hit edit. These are your stat data. If you are trying to add data in you should notice what list they are under. (top of the screen L1, L2, ect.) You should also make sure that the number of data adds up for your two list. Now that you have done that you can go to "2nd" then hit "y=". If you don't want to graph your stat plots just make sure they all sat plot... off by hitting enter on the one that says that it is on. Now if you want one on hit enter and make sure your lists from your data match up with your stat plot. You can hit enter and see what one you need. they are above the 1, 2, 3, etc key. Hope this works. If all else fails you can clear your calculator by pressing "2nd", "+", "7", "1", "2". This will turn off all your stat plots if you have trouble understandsing this. b
