## TI 89 Calculus: Magnify Graphs With the TI-89 ZoomBox feature

The TI-89 guesses at what portion of the graph you want to see. Usually, you’ll have to tweak the viewing window to get a useful result. The TI-89 has several features to change the viewing window, including ZoomIn, Zoomout and ZoomStd — which displays the “standard” window from -10 to 10. ZoomBox allows you to box in a certain area of the graph and then zoom in on that portion.

**Sample problem:** Magnify the graph of the following function using ZoomBox feature:f(x) = 10 sin(x)

Step 1: **Press HOME.
