You have to press the diamond button and then enter. Or you can just put a decimal point after one of the numbers and press enter.

### My Ti-89 is not giving the right answer for cosine. I typed in the cos(42) and it gave me -.39985 when it is supposed to be posotive .74314. Does anyone know what is wrong?

Nothing's wrong, your calculator is giving you the cosine of 42 radians. If you want the cosine of 42 degrees (which is 0.74314), press MODE, down-arrow to the "Angle" line, press right-arrow, select "2:DEGREE", and press ENTER twice.

### Solve() gives me wrong answer. -20^2=12^2+2X(-5-3). The answer is -16, But my TI-89 is giving me 34 during the solve funtion. my TI-83 is also giving me -20^2=-400 not 400.

Enter the first term as (-20^2), not as -20^2. Without the parentheses the calculator interprets it as
-(20^2), which is not what you want.

Also, make sure you use the (-) key just to the right of the decimal point and not the - key.

### Ti-89 titanium SIN!!!!!

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 :-)
