 P: 587 Does anyone know how to put absolute values in the t1-83 graphing calculator? I need to graph absolute value of x, the absolute value of x +2, and the absolute value of x-3
 P: 353 Easy as pi. HEHEHE.....Sorry. Go to your y= screen. Pust the yellow [2nd], then push catalogue (above the zero, I think). I think the first thing your screen will show is: abs( pust enter. There, now in Y1= should be abs(. Punch in your values, make sure your window is good, and wahlah. Paden Roder

yep... do you know why?

HINT: what does AbsVal do to a number?
 P: 84 Look at what the numbers would have been without the absolute value put in.
 P: 555 Surely they would know what "absolute" means, why would they ask where to find it on their calculator if they didn't?
