Question about Casio FX-250HC Calculator
SOURCE: SIN COS TAN
The answer that you have received in actuality is correct. However, it is in exact form when the answer that you were looking for was an approximation (decimal form) answer. To achieve this all you have to do is hit the alpha button (the yellow button with a diamond in the center) and then enter which will give you your desired answer :-)

for function = (sin,cos,tan,sec,cosec,cotan)
arc(function) = function^-1, calculated in the first quadrant for simplicity(0-pi/2) (0-90deg), as all functions repeat circularly
just another method of notation

It may be due to the angle unit used. You can have angles in degrees, in radians, and in grads. You should set the default angle unit to waht you problem calls for.
To set degree as default SHIFT MODE 3
To set radians as default SHIFT MODE 4
To set grads as default SHIFT MODE 5
The values of angles calculated by the inverse trigonometric functions are in the default unit that is set . This may be the source of the wrong answers that you get.
Hope it helps.

What you deplore is perfectly normal.
7/60= 0.1166666667 the last 6 has been rounded to 7 (result is periodic)
36 + 7/60= 36.1166666667
tan(36 + 7/60) = 0.7296582051
Compare the tangents of two close numbers
True, the precision of calculator is limited, but the number of digits it can display has a lot more precision that real-life problems really require.
Hope it helps.

Your calculator is set to radians, which is the norm for higher mathematics. To set it to degrees, press MODE to bring up the mode editor, press down-arrow twice to get the the angular mode, press right-arrow to highlight "DEGREE," and press ENTER. Press 2ND [QUIT] to exit the mode editor.
