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

Hello,
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
36.7 -36-7/60=0.8166666667
tan(36 + 7/60) = 0.7296582051

Compare the tangents of two close numbers
tan(36.7)= 0.7453770282
tan(36.66666667)=0.7444724166

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.

Make sure you have the angular mode set to radians. In degree, the graph of sine(x) is nearly a straight line for small values of x.

### Cot(x) = -0.6

The cot(x) is also known as the cotangent(x) and it equals 1/tan(x) which equals cos(x)/sin(x). I'm showing these formulas because your calculator may not have a cot button but it will probably have buttons for tan, cos, and sin.

Your calculator may also have buttons for tan-1, cos-1 and sin-1. These are the inverse functions for tan, cos, and sin. If you enter a number and then push the tan-1 button, the result is the angle whose tangent is the entered number. For example, it you enter 1 and push the tan-1 button the answer will be 45 deg because tan (45 deg) = 1.

Now let's look at the problem, cot(x) = -0.6.
The first thing we need to know is do you want the answer in degrees or radians? Your calculator will have both modes. The default mode when you first turn it on is probably degrees. If this problem is in radians you will need to change the mode of your calculator over to radians before we start.

If cot(x) = -0.6, then tan(x) = 1/-0.6 from the formula I showed in the background section.

This means tan(x) = -1.6666666...

Now we just enter -1.66666667 and hit the tan-1 button to get the answer.

If we're operating in degrees the answer is -59.036 deg.

I hope this helps you out.

### How do i work out the Sin, Cos, and Tan on the TI-83 plus?

First, make sure you have the appropriate angular mode set. To change the angular mode, press MODE, use the arrow keys to highlight either "RADIAN" or "DEGREE" on the third line, press ENTER, then press 2ND [QUIT].

Press the appropriate sin, cos, or tan key (two rows above the 7, 8, and 9 keys), enter the angle, close the parenthesis, and press ENTER. For example, to calculate the sin of 2.1, press
SIN 2 . 1 ) ENTER

### I dont know how to enter in a degree and get its COS, TAN, SIN ect.. Can anyone help me out with this.

Press the SIN, COS, or TAN key, type in the angle, and press ENTER. For example, to calculate the sine of 45 degrees, press SIN 4 5 ENTER

Make sure you have the angular mode set to degrees. It's the third line on the mode screen, which you get by pressing the MODE key.

### How to use calculator on how to evaluate trigonometric functions

The FX-115ES is somewhat different to other calculators you might know. The sequence of keys is more like writing up a calculation in a textbook, whereas for "normal" calculators operations are reversed in some places.
For example, with most calculators you would type 30 [sin] to calculate the sine function of 30 degrees, with the 115ES its [sin] 30 [=].

The 115ES has all the standard trigonometric functions:
• Standard functions (sin, cos, tan), type the [sin], [cos] or [tan] key followed by the argument.
• Inverse trigonometric (sin?¹, cos?¹, tan?¹), type [SHIFT][sin], [SHIFT][cos] or [SHIFT][tan] followed by the argument.
• Hyperbolic functions (sinh, cosh, tanh), type [HYP][sin], [HYP][cos], or [HYP][tan] followed by the argument.
• and finally inverse hyperbolic (sinh?¹, cosh?¹, tanh?¹), its [SHIFT][HYP][sin], [SHIFT][HYP][cos], or [SHIFT][HYP][tan] followed by the argument.
Arguments can be given as numbers with mantissa (2.718), as fractions (use the fraction key below [CALC]) or as degree, minute, second (30°12'45") using the [°'"] key for input. To switch between degrees (1 circle = 360°), radians (1 circle = 2?), or grad (1 circle = 400 gon), use [SHIFT][DRG>].

### How to use the cosine,tangent etc functions of calculator fx-82ES plus

Hello,

2. Press the key for the function COS, SIN, or TAN
[COS] displays Cos(

3.Enter the angle 12 deg Screen shows cos(12
Close the right parenthesis ) Screen shows cos(12)
4.Press [=] Screen displays 0.9781

If you want the inverse trigonometric functions you access them with arccos [SHIFT] [COS] (cos^-1)
arcsin [SHIFT][SIN] (sin^-1)
actan [SHIFT][TAN] (tan^-1)

You have to know the principal domain for the inverse trigonometric functions (see any book on trigonometry) to understand the results.
Hope it helps.

### 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.
