Using the last answer variable to generate a sequence You can also use the last answer variable to generate a sequence, such as 2, 5, 14, 41, . . . Each term of this sequence is found by multiplying the previous value by 3 and subtracting 1. Follow these steps to

function, place the cursor at the start of the expression you would like to delete and press .. On a PC (using TI-Nspire Teacher Software), press Alt➪Enter to add a function piece to an already-existing piecewise function. The conditions on each function piece may not intersect (or it wouldn’t be a function). If you try to graph these “overlapping” pieces, the TI-Nspire will only graph the first function piece that you entered into the template. Chapter 10 Using the Graphs Application to Do

corner of the screen. Because this angle was not created on a coordinate plane, it is considered a geometry angle. Angles that are created on a coordinate plane are considered graphing angles, for which the default setting is radians. Of course, for this investigation, I would prefer that you keep the Geometry Angle setting to be measured in degrees. Figure 11-3: Hiding the scale and changing the settings.
