SOURCE: I have a TI-84 Plus

There are no keys for cosecant, secant, and cotangent. You can calculate those ratios as

csc(x) = 1/sin(x)

sec(x) = 1/cos(x)

cot(x) = 1/tan(x)

Simply calculate the trig ratio on the right and then take its reciprocal.

SOURCE: hello i for some reason

It is very likely that when you change the angle unit, you are not saving the changes made.
After you finish changing settings, use the TAB key repeatedly to move cursor towards the OK button at the bottom. If you do not confirm changes by clicking OK, they will be lost.

You can also make the changes the default ones by clicking the Make Default option.

### My calculator is not computing sin^-1 or cos^-1 correctly, I put sin^-1(0.184) in and it came out with 10.60283... when I should be getting 1.39. HALP?

When the angle unit is in radians
When angle unit is in degrees
sin^-1(0.185)=10.60283581
Your calculator is calculating the functions correctly)
In the following screen captures the sine of the values is calculated with the unit specified inside the formula (degree symbol and radian symbol are inserted to show you the unit). In the last calculation the value of the sine is practically 0.184
Remember that when angle is in radians, for very small angles (less than 10 degrees), sin(x) and tan (x) are about equal to the value of the angle in radians

### Cos theta 50

To calculate the Cosine of an angle, you first make sure that the angle unit on your calculator is set to the correct one (degree, or radian). After that it is all simple. Enter the angle value (50 degrees) then press the [COS] key. If you get an error then press the COS key followed by the angle value then press =.
Note if your calculator display Cos ( , with a left parenthesis, then you have to press COS first followed by the angle value and possibly the right parenthesis.
Note. The theta here is of no relevance.

### Sin cos tan

To use these functions press the sin, cos, or tan button followed by the angle you are looking for the value for if in degree mode or the radian value your are looking for if in radian mode.

### How to use a calculator to convert 0.5 to a cosine angle

Let su rephrase the question, just to be sure we are on the same wavelength. The cosine of an angle is 0.5: What is the value of the angle? Right?.

First of all you must set the angle unit to degree or radian.
1. Press [SHIFT][MODE\ and select the appropriate unit.
2. Press [SHIFT][COS] to access the arc cosine function (COS^-1) enter 0.5, close the right parenthesis and hit [=]
If you unit is the degree you should find 60 degrees.
If the angle unit is the radian, the result should be 1.045 radian.

### My ti30x will not do cos-1 when i type it in i get domain error

The cosine function takes its value on the whole real line, the angle domain spans ]-infinity, + infinity[. The range of the function is however limited to the [-1, +1] interval.
Thus if you want to calculate the arc (angle) from the value of the cosine, the cosine must be in the interval [-1, +1]. Any value outside this domain will give you a domain error.
Check that the values you feed to the arc cosine function are in the interval [-1,+1].

If the angle unit is the degree the value returned bay [cos^-1] is in degrees, and if the angle unit is the radian, the value returned is in radians

### How do you use the sin-1

You would press on the SIN key, "sin(" should come on the display, then enter the value, for example 3.5 or -1 so that the display shows

sin(3,5) or sin(-1) for example.

remember to close the sin with the ) on the end.
sin(-1) = -0.841470985

### TI-84 Incorrect sin/cos/tan values

What is so surprising? The sine and cosine functions have ranges that span the closed interval [-1,1]. As to the tangent function, its range is the the whole real line.

This being said, you should keep in mind that there are three angle units: the degree, the radian, and the grad.
When you want to calculate the sine, cosine, or tangent of a number, that number is not just a number. It is an angle, and as an angle it has a unit.

For this reason a calculator generally has two angle units defined (degree and radian), and possibly the grad. BEFORE calculating any trigonometric function you must ascertain that the angle is in the correct unit.

Clearly, in the problem you are trying to solve angle values are given in degrees, but your calculator is configured to interpret angles values in radians.

To set the default angle unit to degree press [MODE] , then press down arrow twice to reach the line (radian, degree). Highlight the word degree and press [ENTER] to set the default angle unit to degree.

Unfortunately the TI 8xPLUS family of calculators does not have a status bar on screen to remind you of the modes, and if you do not remember to check the current unit you get errors (at least unexpected results).

However, there is a way to avoid the errors and that is to enter the unit explicitly after the angle value. To do that you press [2nd][APPS] to open the (ANGLE) menu list. Try it.
1. First item in list is the degree symbol, a raised 0
2. 2nd is the minute, an apostrophe
3. 3rd is radian, a raised r
By selecting the degree symbol and pressing [ENTER}, that symbol echoes on the screen just after the angle value. Closing the right parenthesis of the trigonometric function and pressing [ENTER] will give you the result in the correct unit of your choice. This can be done regardless of the default unit the calculator is configured for.

### Need to know how to obtain the cot,csc, and see in the degree mode and radian mode

Hello,
There are no dedicated keys for these trigonometric functions, for the simple reason that they can be obtained from the tan, sin, and cos by a simple division.
cotangent (x) =1/tan(x) . Do not confuse with the arc tangent tan^(-1)
cosecant (x) = 1/sin(x) . Do not confuse with the arcsine sin^(-1)
secant(x) =1/cos(x) Do not confuse with the arccosine cos^(-10)

If you know how to use the tan, cos, and sin, with angle unit in degrees or radians, then there will not be any problem

If angle unit is degree, any number you give a trigonometric function is interpreted as degree. For instance if mode is in degree , and you calculate cos(PI) do not expect the value -1. You will have the value corresponding to the cosine of of 3.14159 degrees, namely 0.99849715

Now for you if you are interested.
If [MODE] is in degrees you can still enter angles in radians
You use the [2nd][ANGLE] [3: raised r] [ENTeR].
Here is a screen capture to show you more clearly.

The raised r is obtained by [2nd][ANGLE][3: raised r] [ENTER]

Hope it helps.

Hello,
To avoid problems,set your angle unit to radians by default. Press [MODE]. If Radian is highlighted (text on black background), it is indeed the default mode. If Degreee is highlighted, scroll dowm to the line and use the left arrow to select Radian and press ENTER. Radian will start blinking.
Any number you feed a function that acts on angles (sin, cos, tan) will be considered in radians. Any result that comes out of the inverse trigonometric functions (arcsin, arccos, arctan) is in radian. The angle coming from a conversion from cartesian coordinates to polar coordinates is in radian.
You have a simple way to convert the value from radians to degrees because 1 rad=180/pi. Store this value in a variable [STO->] D
180/[2nd][PI] [STO->] D

Since the last result is always stored in [Ans] all you have to do is to multiply by D: [Ans][x][ALPHA]D converts results in degrees.

Hope it helps
