Parameterised functions

    Hi, I have a TI-84 Plus Calculator and wonders wether it is possible to have two more of the parameterised function slots. I need to graph eight functions, but there is a restriction of six.

    Do you know of any good ways of solving an equation on the calc? It is long and complex (but real) functions, it will take up to 15 lines on the calc screen, and it has both trigonometric and polynomial form. What I need is an approximation to the first solution of it to three digits. Newton's method wont do, as it will make the iteration function 50 lines long.

    Thanks for help
