# Solution; Explorer Apps; Linear Explorer And Quadratic Explorer Apps - HP Prime Graphing Calculator Quick Start Manual

## Solution

1. If necessary, tap
to set the angle measure to degrees.
2. Enter a = 9, b =6, and B = 30.
3. Tap
to see the result.
The length of the third side is shown as c =11.76... Angles A and C are also calculated.
Note that in this case, there is a second
solution, indicated by the presence of a new
. Tap
to see the
second solution: c = 3.825... Press
again to see the earlier result.

### Explorer apps

Explorer apps are designed for you to explore linear, quadratic, and trigonometric functions. Various functions and their
associated graphs are shown. You can change the parameters of a function and immediately see how the graph of that
function changes. You can also change a graph and immediately see the change in the parameters of the corresponding
equation. You can then test your skill at matching functions with graphs.

### Linear Explorer and Quadratic Explorer apps

The Linear Explorer app gives you an opportunity to explore the behavior of graphs of the form y=ax and y = ax + b as the
2
values of a and b change. The Quadratic Explorer app is very similar. With it you can explore the behavior of y = a(x + h)
+ v
as the values of a, h, and v change. In both apps you can change the equation and note the change in the graph, or change
the graph and note the change in the equation. You can change a graph using the change keys. You can also translate a graph
by tapping it and then dragging it.
To open the Linear Explorer app (or Quadratic Explorer app), press ! and select Linear Explorer (or Quadratic Explorer).
Since these apps are very similar, both will be treated together in this section (with the Quadratic Explorer app used as the
model).
