method tool (Note: This tool requires all
constraints to be written with the right-hand side nonnegative.
The objective function can't have any constant terms in it. If a
variable appears in a constraint but not in the objective function, be
sure to include it in the objective function with a coefficient of 0).

Note: In the text listings, \->\ represents
STO-> key in the left column.
Note: To use the binary version of the program, you will first need to download it. To download it, right click the appropriate link and choose
"Save target as..." with Internet Explorer or "Save link as..." with Netscape. The downloaded file should have the indicated length. With some versions of Netscape, it may be corrupted and have a different length. In that case, please use Internet Explorer or click here to find another link that might enable you to download this file properly. If you have problems following these instructions, please send e-mail to email@example.com).
After being downloaded, the binary version of
program may be loaded directly into the TI calculator of the
type, IF you have a "TI-GRAPH LINK" cable to connect your PC and the
and you use the appropriate "TI-GRAPH LINK" software available for free
download at http://education.ti.com/us/product/apps/latest.html .
There are "TI-GRAPH LINK" cables connected to several of the computers
in the Math Lab which you may use in the Math Lab. The "TI-GRAPH
LINK" software is already installed on some of the computers in the
Lab. If you have trouble finding it, please ask for help.
If you have a "TI USB connectivity kit" cable
TI-Connect version 1.6 (or later) software installed on your computer,
it is even easier to load the binary version of "Rowop" onto your TI
calculator. (TI USB cables and TI-Connect
software are already
present on many of the computers in the Math Lab. If you have
finding such a computer, please ask for help. TI-Connect
is available for free download at http://education.ti.com/en/us/software/search
if you click on the link for TI-Connect
Software for Windows ).
After TI-Connect version 1.6.1 or later is installed on your computer,
plug the USB part of the USB cable into a USB port on your computer and
the pointy part of the USB cable into your TI calculator. Then,
turn on your calculator. Use the mouse on your computer to
right-click on the binary program file you downloaded to your
computer. Select "Send to TI device". Select the file
and choose Destination RAM. Then, click on "Send to Device" at
the bottom of the screen. The binary file will then be
transferred to your TI calculator.
