Let us see if I understand what you want to do. You have two functions f and g. With f and g you create four functions,

1. f+g, which you want to evaluate at 0
2. f-g, which you want to evaluate at -1
3. f*g, which you want to evaluate at 1
4. and f/g, which you want to evaluate at 3
If that is not what you intend to do, then I am sorry to I that interpreted incorrectly and you will have to post a comment with more information.
If however I did understand what you want to do, then there is a simple way to achieve this
1. In the [Y=] function editor, enter Y1 and Y2
2. In your mind decide which one represents f(x) and which represents g(x), probably f(x)=Y1(x) and g(x)= Y2(x)
3. Validate each one by pressing [ENTER]
4. Do not worry about graphing the function.
6. Enter a value (for example 5) and store it in variable X; to do so you press 5 [STO->][X,T, theta,n] [ENTER]
7. To calculate f(x)+g(x) or (f+g)(x) on the command line in main calculator screen
• Press [VARS][=>][Y-VARS][1:Function][1:Y1][ENTER]. Main calculator screen echoes Y1
• Press [+]. Screen shows Y1+
• Press [VARS][=>][Y-VARS][1:Function][1:Y2][ENTER]. Main calculator screen echoes Y1+Y2
• Press [ENTER] to obtain the value of f+g at X=5
As you can see, if you want a different operation f-g, f*g, or f`/g for a different value of X, you will have to repeat steps 6 and 7.

I am going to show you how to create a small program that will perform all the 4 operations in sequence, each time asking you for the value of X you want to use. If you are not interested, you can ignore what follows. I remain convinced that it will be helpful for other visitors.

Creating a simple program

Press [PRGM]
Use arrow to highlight [NEW]
Press [ENTER]
Screen displays
PROGRAM
Type in the name, for example FOPG ( meaning F operation G) or anything else. Do not use a keyword (reserved command of the TI84Plus) These are what you find in the [CATALOG].

The top line on each screen capture is inserted by the program editor after you choose the name. The last line of first screen is the the same line as the second line on 2nd screen. It must not be entered. The colon : is supplied by the program editor. It is the beginning of an instruction.

There are only to commands that are repeated here: Disp and Prompt

Disp orders the program to display
1. a message (what is between the quotation marks) or
2. the result of a calculation: Y1+Y2, Y1-Y2, Y1*Y2, or Y1/Y2
Prompt X will display X=? and the blinking cursor. You are supposed to enter the desired value of X and press [ENTER].
The Disp and Prompt command are accessed through the command catalog by pressing [2nd][0] (CATALOG) then scrolling along the list of commands to find the one needed. Shortcuts are possible (see below)

How to key in the program steps within the program editor
: Disp "F+G"

Press [2nd][0] (CATALOG) [X^-1](D) [Scroll Down [till...] Disp
Press [ENTER]. Editor shows :Disp
Press [ALPHA] [+] ("). Editor shows :Disp "
Press [ALPHA][COS] (F). Editor shows :Disp "F
Press [+]. Editor shows :Disp "F+
Press [ALPHA][TAN] (G). Editor shows :Disp "F+G
Press [ALPHA][+] (") Editor shows :Disp "F+G"
Press [ENTER] to validate instruction
Calculator inserts a new line :

: Disp Y1+Y2
Press [2nd][0] (CATALOG) [X^-1](D) [Scroll Down [till...] Disp
Press [ENTER]. Editor shows :Disp
Press [VARS][=>][Y-VARS][1:Function][1:Y1][ENTER]. Editor shows :Disp Y1
Press [+] . Editor shows :Disp Y1+
Press [VARS][=>][Y-VARS][1:Function][1:Y2][ENTER]. Editor shows :Disp Y1+Y2
Press {ENTER] to validate instruction
Editor inserts a new line :

:Prompt X
Press [2nd][0] (CATALOG) [8](P) [Scroll Down [till...] Prompt
Press [ENTER]. Editor shows :Prompt
Press [X,T.theta,n] key. Editor shows :Prompt X
Press [ENTER] to validate instruction
Editor inserts a new line :

To save program
Once all instructions are entered, press [2nd][QUIT] to save program.

To run program

1. Press [PRGM]
2. Under the [EXEC] menu, the list of available programs appears.
3. Type the number corresponding to the one you want to run ( FOPG) and press [ENTER].
4. The main calculator screen displays prgmFOPG and blinking cursor.
5. Press [ENTER] to make it run
6. Enter a value of X and press [ENTER]

OOPS
The line
Press [VARS][=>][Y-VARS][1:Function][1:Y2][ENTER]. Editor shows :Disp Y1+Y2

Should be
Press [VARS][=>][Y-VARS][1:Function][2:Y2][ENTER]. Editor shows :Disp Y1+Y2

The second line of the second screen capture is an overlap of the last line of the first screen capture and it must not be entered.

### Whenever i try to link my calculator with other ones it always says error in xmit. no matter what i do

Hello,
Hope it helps.

How can I troubleshoot an Error in Xmit error message when transferring data between two graphing calculators?

The Error in Xmit error message is returned when a connection cannot be established between two calculators when attempting to transfer data. There are several factors that can contribute to this error message.
• The calculators being connected are not compatible for data transfer.
• The data cable is not firmly connected to both units.
• The receiving calculator is not in receive mode.
• The I/O port on one of the graphing calculators is damaged.
The procedure for connecting two graphing calculators is as follows:

• Connect the data cable to the I/O port of each unit. The cable will fit tightly in the I/O port and snap into place. If silver from the cable is visible, the cable is not properly connected.
• Place the receiving graphing calculator on "Receive"
• Place the sending unit on "Transmit" or "Send" from the Link menu.

Once the data has been selected, the transfer will commence accordingly.

The data transfer protocols for graphing calculator is as follows:

• TI-73 - Link allows data sharing with another TI-73, TI-82, TI-83, and TI-83 Plus.
• TI-82 - Link allows data sharing with another TI-82.
• TI-83 - Link allows data sharing with the TI-82, TI-83 family calculator, and TI-84 Plus family calculator.
• TI-83 Plus/TI-84 Plus family- Link allows data sharing with another TI-82, TI-83 family calculator, and TI-84 Plus family calculator.
• TI-85 - Link allows data sharing with another TI-85(To a TI-86. Not From a TI-86).
• TI-86 - Link allows data sharing with another TI-86 and from a TI-85 to a TI-86.
• TI-89 family- Link allows data sharing with another TI-89 family calculator and from a TI-92 family calculator.
• TI-92 family- Link allows data sharing with another TI-92 family calculator and from a TI-89 family calculator.
• Voyage™ 200 - Link allows data sharing with another Voyage 200 and TI-92 family calculator.

If the cable does not fit properly into the I/O port, or if the I/O port appears to be damaged (broken or separated plastic, obstruction inside the port), call 1-800-TI-CARES (1-800-842-2737) M-TH 8:00 AM - 7:00 PM FRI 10:00 AM - 7:00 PM Central Standard Time to speak to a representative or sending an email to ti-cares@ti.com.
