These programs do not actually do
anything, they are used as references.
Access them by going to edit for that
program.
Be sure to use quit to go back to your
home screen, clear will erase lines of the
program.

Programs with their own Menus:


F2k, Math
These have several functions within a single
program.
You must choose from the menu which
functions you wish to perform, then you
must follow the directions correctly for each
function

infinite 3. infinite limit 4. A x B)
sigma

Math:
Area (list of formulas)
Volume (list of formulas)
Loan (calculates pmts & interest)
Distance (calculates and gives formula)
Midpoint (calculates and gives formula)
Sales Tax (calculates tax and total price)

triangle
all tri (find area: 1. by length 2. by SAS)
right tri (find length of: 1. hypotenuse
2. a leg)
special tri (1. 30-60-90 2. 45-45-90)

Dist
finds the distance between two points
gives the formula used
tells the square root taken to find the
distance in case the answer is needed in
radical form

Line
gives the formula for point-slope form
the user inputs a point and the slope
the program writes an equation in slopeintercept form

Log
user inputs the of number (fatty) and the
base
program gives the answer

Midpoint
user gives two coordinates
program gives the midpoint on two lines (x,
y)

Pythagor
which side is missing
program calculates the missing side when
the other two are given

Quadratic
user inputs A, B and C
the solution is given

Radsimp
simplifies roots other than square
index is the root, radicand is the number
under the radical

Slope
asks for two points
gives the slope in the form rise/run

Slvsystm
ax + by = c
dx + ey = f
asks for a, b, c, d, e, f
solves for x and y

Yintslop
asks for two points
gives the slope and y-intercept
