Best Answer

The TI-85 was the second graphing calculator made by Texas Instruments. (The first was the TI-81). The TI-84 is a much newer version and has more functionality and memory. The only real advantage that the TI-85 has over the TI-84 is that it costs less.

As far as where you are allowed to use the calculator, almost every test or class that allows a TI-85 will allow a TI-84 as well. The TI-84 is a much better investment. (If the TI-84 is too expensive, look into getting a TI-83. This model is also newer than the TI-85.)

What is the difference between a ti-84 calculator then a ti-83 calculator?

Well, ti83s don't have archive memory(ti83 plus does though) while ti84 has archive. Ti84s allow you to start a two digit label with a letter, while ti83 doesn't, which is why there is an ERR:VERSION when you try to transfer programs with labels like A4 from ti84 to ti83. Also, ti84s default connection cord is different from that of them ti83, and ti84 uses a mini-USB as ti83 uses a different one, the one labeled 'I/O' on the ti84.

I believe that that isn't possible unless you have it ported to ti84 or you know how to. the file format is different, and the game is built for a separate calc.
