Question about Texas Instruments TI-92 Plus Calculator

Hi

I have aproblem with My TI-94

When I want like cos(x) the answer is cos(x)

that is one

and the fractions

like I want 1/2 = 0.5

It always give me this answer 1/2=1/2

root of 3 /2 is the same

can you help me program it

Instead of putting a whole number put in a decamal.... that worked for me

ex.

cos(25.)

not cos(25)

Does it refuse to do so or does it give an error message?

Three common errors:

Three common errors:

- Not having the correct angle unit.
**Wrong result, No error message** - Confusing reciprocal of sine (1/sin(x) with arc sine (x) ,sin^-1(x). Confusing the reciprocal of cosine, 1/cos(x) with arc cosine (cos^-1(x)).
**Wrong result, No error message** - Taking the argument of the inverse sine and/or inverse cosine functions outside the interval [-1,1].
**This gives a domain error.**

If you're in the MATHPRINT mode, press

2ND [COS^-1] ( 8 - 3 2ND [sqrt] 2 1 right-arrow ) / 2 5 ENTER

If you're in the CLASSIC mode, press

2ND [COS^-1] ( 8 - 3 2ND [sqrt] 2 1 ) ) / 2 5 ENTER

In either case you should get an answer of about 103.

2ND [COS^-1] ( 8 - 3 2ND [sqrt] 2 1 right-arrow ) / 2 5 ENTER

If you're in the CLASSIC mode, press

2ND [COS^-1] ( 8 - 3 2ND [sqrt] 2 1 ) ) / 2 5 ENTER

In either case you should get an answer of about 103.

The trig functions depend on the angular mode. Make sure you have the proper one set.

cos A = adjacent/hypotenuse
= 19/24

A = Inverse cos (19/24) = 37.66

P.S. Also, make sure your calculators settings is in degrees (not radians or grads)

Hi danagasta,

If my last instructions did not work then you need to reset your RAM. You are missing the negative sign and, I have no idea where you got the absolute value inside the brackets.

Yes, the absolute value are used in books and, on integral tables but, I can asure you that the Ti 89 should not have produce them in this answer.

I'll stand behind that In( -cos(x) / (sin(x)-1)) is the correct answer. You can go ahead and simplify after the calculation to get the answer you want but, that is the good answer that Ti 89 is going to give you for the integral of sec(x).

Errors that do not match the suspected, I am pretty sure that Texas Instruments would have you clear the RAM. I do not like resetting the RAM but, I could not find the cause to why you got the answer you did. And so far no other expert has produced a solution to convince me otherwise.

I was not able to come up with any of the 3 answers MiB8888 did on my Ti 89. I am not saying that they are not good answers, they are book and integral tables answers. You are not going to get them on the Ti 89.

-1E-13 is a very small number. When doing this kind of a problem you can regard 1E-13 as 0.

Remember that pi is an irrational number. It is only estimated on your calculator. I just played around with a TI-83 and found the following answers:

cos(pi/2) = 0

cos(2*pi + pi/2) = 0

cos(4*pi + pi/2) = 1E-13

cos(20*pi + pi/2) = -1E-13

As you know, that correct answer to each of these is 0. The calculator gives non-zero answers because some very small errors are accumulating. There is nothing wrong with your calculator.

There isn't anything "wrong" with it.

Go to mode, and set the results of your inquiries from Exact to approx.

If you put in cos(e^2), it will print out cos(e^2) because it's the most exact it can be without going into a decimal. (cos(e^2) will be a transcendental number like Pi).
