A few questions: - LodSb - 03-29-2022 05:55 PM
1) How would I solve a system of equations to find the intersecting points of a circle and a line? If I use the solve app, it only gives me the points for one intersection, of the two that there are. Any idea how I would do this? 2) Is there a way I can covert back and fourth between decimal and scientific notation? I have seen multiple apps, but I'm not sure which one is the best, or most up to date. 3) Is there a way to analyze graphs to get stuff like the focal point or directrix of a parabola? 4) Is there a way to get the Fcn option that is available in the Function app to also show up in the Advanced Graphing app? 5) Is there a guide online or here somewhere for what all of the options do? I'm a pretty new user to this calculator and would like to learn more about it. RE: A few questions: - jte - 01-12-2023 10:12 PM

If I use the solve app, it only gives me the points for one intersection, of the two that there are. Any idea how I would do this? Two of the built-in apps come to mind. With the Advanced Graphing app, this could be done by - entering “(X-2)^2+(Y-2)^2=5” and “2*X+Y=4” for V1 and V2 (in the Symbolic view) and then
- going to the Plot view and selecting Trace / PoI / Intersections with V2 (assuming the trace cursor is on V1; the d-pad can be used to go between the two intersections); or, to see the values in a table:
- go to the Numeric view and select Trace / PoI / Intersections of V1 and V2 . (The app only scans the current plot area, so you’ll want to first ensure both intersections are visible in the Plot view.)

⋮ With the Geometry app, this could be done by - going to the Plot view and selecting Cmds / Plot / Implicit and entering “(x-2)^2+(y-2)^2=5”, selecting Cmds / Plot / Implicit and entering “2x+y=4”, (to bring up the two curves)
- selecting Cmds / Point / Intersections, picking one curve & pressing Enter, picking the other curve & pressing Enter, (to add the intersection points)
- going to the CAS view and evaluating “GC”; “GC(1)” will give the first point and “GC(2)” will give the second.
The Symbolic view, after interacting with the Plot view: RE: A few questions: - Arno K - 01-13-2023 01:59 PM
What about simply using solve in cas: solve([((x-2)^2+(y-2)^2) = 5,(2*x+y) = 4],[x,y]) which provides [x = ((1/5)*(sqrt(21)+6)),y = ((-2/5)*(sqrt(21)+6)+4)],[x = ((1/5)*(-sqrt(21)+6)),y = ((-2/5)*(-sqrt(21)+6)+4)] so both intersections. Arno |
