9. Vectors
Press Mode, 8, and AC (red key). You will then see VCT on the top of
your display. Now you are in the vector mode and can start performing
vector calculations.
To enter a vector: Press Shift, 5, and then 1 (Dim) or 2(Data). 2(Data) lets
you also view or change vectors that you have already entered. 1(Dim) lets
you reenter vectors. If you have already entered a vector and you select
1(Dim), it takes you through the process of reentering it. So it will erase
the previous one. Select the vector you would like to enter. You can enter
up to 3 vectors. For instance, press 1 to enter Vector A. Select the
dimensions of the vector. Enter each cofactor for i, j, and k. Press = after
entering each one. After enter it, press AC (the red key). It is stored as a
vector.
To see the values for a vector already entered: Press Shift, 5, and then 2
(Data). Select the vector you would like to view. After viewing it, press
AC (the red key).
To find dot product: Press Shift, 5, and then select the first vector. Press
either 3 (for vector A), 4 (for vector B), or 5 (for vector C). Press Shift, 5,
Prepared By Test Masters Educational Services
and then 7 (Dot). Press Shift, 5, and then the second vector (either 3, 4, 5).
Then press =. Press AC to run another vector calculation.
To find cross product: Press Shift, 5, and then select the first vector.
Press either 3 (for vector A), 4 (for vector B), or 5 (for vector C). Press the
multiplication symbol. Press Shift, 5, and then the second vector (either 3,
4, 5). Then press =. Press AC to run another vector calculation.
To find magnitude of a vector: Press Shift, Abs (the hyp key), and then
select the vector by pressing Shift, 5, and the vector (either 3, 4, 5). Press
=. The magnitude will be displayed. Press AC (the red key) to perform
another vector calculation.

places when entering the formula.
10. Matrices
Press Mode, 6, and AC (red key). You will then see MAT on the top of
your display. Now you are in the matrix mode and can start performing
calculations.
To enter a matrix: Press Shift, 4, and then 1 (Dim) or 2(Data). 2(Data)
lets you also view or change matrices that you have already entered.
1(Dim) lets you reenter the matrices. If you have already entered a matrix
and you select 1(Dim), it takes you through the process of reentering it. It
will erase the previous one. Select the matrix you would like to enter. You
can enter up to 3 matrices. For instance, press 1 to enter matrix A. Select
the size of the matrix. Press the down arrow for more options. After
selecting the size of the matrix, enter each element and press = after each
one. When finished entering the elements, press AC (the red key). The

AC (the red key) to perform another matrix calculation.
11. Normal Distribution
Press Mode, 3 (STAT), and AC (red key). Press Shift, 1, and 7(Distr,
3(R()). Enter the Z score. This option (R()) is equivalent to the middle
column on the normal distribution chart in your reference book.
However, if you have a negative Z score, you must enter the ABSOLUTE
VALUE of it to get the area to the left of it (if its on the left side of the
chart). If you enter a negative Z-score, then it assumes you want the
remaining part (as if you were going through the center to the other side
of the normal distribution graph).
9. To Solve a Function Note the calculator gives you one solutions, even
if there are multiple solutions.
