TridiagonalSolve gone?

i'd like to use TridiagonalSolve[].   it doesn't seem to be working.




with a, b, c and d expanded as lists.   so i went to the help browser and
looked up TridiagonalSolve.  it gave a short example which i copied and
pasted into a notebook.  everything went fine until the very last line:

TridiagonalSolve[a, b, c, {2, 3, 4, 5}]

which according to the help browser should have a value

\!\({\(-\(28\/9\)\), 26\/9, 5\/27, 20\/81}\)

but instead, in my notebook it returned:

TridiagonalSolve[{7, 1, 11}, {4, 8, 2, 12}, {5, 9, 3}, {2, 3, 4, 5}]

and i did make sure to <<LinearAlgebra`Tridiagonal`.   any thoughts as to
why this function isn't working?
