So I am trying to make 2 different lines, one with L1 and L2, and one with L1 and L3. My calculator doesn't have the option to change L2 to L3 when trying to find the slope intercept form. What do I do?

(Side note, this article looks like instructions for a TI-84 Plus CE, which is just color edition, and I have the TI-84 Plus, which could make a difference, but IDK)

Replying to

After "Y List," you should be able to delete the L2 list and then add L3 by hitting "2nd" + "3"
