# ASOLVE: Your TI84 Algebra Equation Solver Program

Introducing ASOLVE: The All-In-One Algebra Equation Solver for TI84 Calculator

Have you ever found yourself struggling to solve complex algebraic equations on your TI84 Calculator? Do you find it tedious to manually solve algebraic equations with X on both sides, fractional equations, rational equations, log equations, exponential equations, and equations with radicals? If so, then we have good news for you! We present to you ASOLVE – the all-in-one algebra equation solver for your TI84 Calculator.

## What is ASOLVE?

ASOLVE is a program designed to solve 90% of first-degree algebra equations. It is an easy-to-use program that can help you solve algebraic equations with X on both sides, fractional equations, rational equations, log equations, exponential equations, and even equations with radicals. It uses advanced algorithms to quickly and accurately solve equations and provide you with the answer you need.

## How to use ASOLVE

Using ASOLVE is simple and easy. Once you have installed the program on your TI84 Calculator, follow these steps:

Step 1: Press the “PRGM” button on your calculator and select “ASOLVE” from the list of programs.

Step 2: Enter the left-side of the equation you want to solve when prompted “Left-Side”.

Step 3: Enter the right-side of the equation you want to solve when prompted “Right-Side”.

Step 4: Follow the prompts on the screen to input the coefficients and constants of the equation.

Step 5: Press “ENTER” to get the solution of the equation.

Note: It is important to include parentheses when entering data to avoid mistakes with rational expressions, fractions, etc.

## Cases where ASOLVE works:

ASOLVE is designed to solve most first-degree algebra equations. It can solve equations with X on both sides, fractional equations, rational equations, log equations, exponential equations, and even equations with radicals. Here are some examples of the equations ASOLVE can solve:

• 3x + 4 = 7
• 2/3x – 4 = 2x + 8/3
• (x + 2)/(x – 1) + 1 = (x + 4)/(x – 1)
• log2(x) + log2(x + 2) = 3
• 3^x + 3^(x-1) = 20
• sqrt(x – 3) + 5 = x

## Cases where ASOLVE won’t work:

ASOLVE is a powerful tool for solving algebraic equations, but there are certain cases where it won’t work. Here are some examples of equations that ASOLVE can’t solve:

• Equations with no solutions: For example, x + 1 = x + 2 has no solution as both sides are not equal.
• Equations with infinite solutions: For example, 2x = 4x has infinite solutions as any value of x will satisfy the equation.
• Equations with multiple solutions: For example, x^2 – 3x + 2 = 0 has two solutions: x = 1 and x = 2.

If you do have questions with X-squared, you’ll want to use the QUAD program. For now, it’s free at this link here.

## ASOLVE Solving your typical algebraic equations:

Here are some examples excerpted from the above video. For the first example, you can see it solve your typical algebraic equation:

Notice how you can have an X-term on both sides. That’s pretty cool. In more complicated questions, such as fractional equations, ASOLVE will solve them for you pretty quickly.

Amazingly, ASOLVE will also solve exponential equations. In this example, it’s 5 raised to the X plus 1 equals 625. Similarly, you can have X as your base and raise it to a numerical exponent. You can also raise it fractional exponents, as in the second example here: X raised to the two-thirds power equals 4.

When entering an exponential expression, or a fraction, just be sure to enclose it in parentheses. For example, in the 5 raised to the X + 1, you’ll probably want to enclose X + 1 in parentheses so it looks like this: (X + 1).

Next, it will even solve logarithmic equations. In the example below, you’ll see how you can enter log 100 equals X. Also, you could enter log of X equals 100 and it will solve that as well.

Furthermore, you can solve rational equations. They look like fractional equations, but sometimes have expressions including the X variable in the numerator.

To be safe, you’ll probably want to enclose any expression in the numerator or denominator in parentheses. This is a lifesaving tip with rational expressions when using ASOLVE!

Lastly, you can solve radical equations and radical expressions. In this example, you’ll see the square root of 3X plus 4 equals 5.

While there are many more applications of ASOLVE you can use in helping you with your algebra, this covers the basics.

## Conclusion:

In conclusion, ASOLVE is a powerful tool for anyone who needs to solve complex algebraic equations on their TI84 Calculator. With its ability to solve 90% of first-degree algebra equations, ASOLVE can save you time and effort when it comes to solving complex equations. However, it’s important to note that ASOLVE won’t work for equations with no solutions, infinite solutions, or multiple solutions. So, the next time you need to solve an algebraic equation, give ASOLVE a try and see how it can help you.

Just be sure to include parentheses when entering data to avoid mistakes with rational expressions, fractions, and other complex equations.

We hope you find ASOLVE to be a useful addition to your TI84 Calculator. If you have any questions or concerns about the program, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We are always here to help you with your algebraic equation needs. ## By Martin
