science space and astronomy# How do you do limits on a TI 84 Plus?

You

**can**approximate**limits**usingthe**TI**-**84**by using either the TRACE or TABLE command.Touse the TRACE command, set MODE and WINDOW parameters to suitthefunction, use**GRAPH**to display it, and plug in numberscloseto the given x value. For each value x, we will**get**close toour**limit**.

Just so, how do you put limits into a calculator?

**How to Solve Limits with a Calculator**

- Enter your number, say 4.9999, on the home screen.
- Press the Sto (store) button, then the x button, and thentheEnter button.
- Enter the function:
- Hit Enter.
- For good measure, store 4.999999 into x.
- Scroll back up to the function by hitting 2nd, Enter,2nd,Enter.
- Hit Enter one more time.

**limit**value into this function and simplify. You wantto

**find the limit**as x approaches 0, so the

**limit**hereis –1/36.

Also, how do you do limits on a TI 83 Plus?

**How to Find Limits on TI-83 Plus**

- Press [2nd] followed by [TABLE] Look at the numbers in thetableto find the limit as X approaches the number you are lookingfor(for example as X approaches to 3) Step 1: Type in(x^2-25)/(x-5)into [Y=]
- Adjust the [WINDOW], then press [GRAPH] to display thegraph.Press [Y=] and enter a limit problem.

**Limit** (mathematics) In mathematics, a**limit**is the value that a function (or sequence)"approaches" as the input(or index) "approaches" some value.**Limits** are essential to**calculus** (and mathematicalanalysis in general) and are usedto define continuity,derivatives, and integrals.
