Can anyone give me any tips before the test Sat? Also, what is the change of base theorem (for logs)... and does anyone know how to use matrices on a ti-89?

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help... I may be back later with more questions!

Just put everything into your TI-89 and I guarantee a score of at least 700.

Change of base:

Log base b of c = log c / log b

Make sure you put it into your calc right :P I left out the 2 in the law of cosines on my calc and completely forgot to add it back on the test

dont worry about matrices. It's uncommon to encounter any.

u can make your life so much easier if u know a little bit of programming on the calc..........u can either make one yourself or download it somewhere from the internet....

Here are some of the programs on my calc:

1. type in the function and the calc will give out all the zeroes, min-max, vertex and stuff

2. type in an angle and u will get the ref.angle as well as all thr 6 trig function of it

3. type in any log function with any base and u ll get the answer

4. solve any degree polynomial equation

5. just plug in all the values for law of sines, cosines, and u get the answer

thanks for the help... those programs definitely seem helpful... but I would have no idea how to go about making them myself... and I don't have anything to connect my calculator to my computer (or at least I don't think that I do!) Thanks again though!

Read the online manual for the Ti-89.

Thanks... but I think that it would take me too long to figure out lol... Can anyone help me w/ this question (it's #34 in Real SAT IIs Math IIC)

If x(subscript 0)=0 and x(subscript n +1)=radical(6+ x(subscript n)), then x(subscript 3)=

A) 2.449

B) 2.907

C) 2.984

D) 2.997

E) 3.162

sorry to bug y'all... but bump

What it's saying is that to get to each subsequent term from the previous one, you add 6 and square root the result.

Start with 0 (this is the 0th term that is given in the question), and do this 3 times to get to the 3rd term, and you get (C) 2.984.

plug x(sub 0) into the equation.

x(sub 1) = rad 6

x(sub 2) = rad (6 + rad 6)

x(sub 3) = rad (6 + rad(6 + rad 6))

2.984 (c)

huh? is there a rad or sub button on the calcualtor?

By Jason (Jason) on Friday, October 10, 2003 - 11:41 pm: Edit |

Rad = square root (illogical, I know...nothing to do with radians)

Sub = subscript

The question makes way more sense if you look at it with the correct formatting in 10 Real SATIIs.
