How do i get the cotangent angle

To calculate the cotangent of an angle, calculate the angle's tangent and then take the reciprocal.
To calculate the angle given a cotangent, take the tangent's reciprocal then the arctangent.
If you're asking how to do this on a particular calculator, what make and model?

How to calculate angles

You need more information to be able to solve resolve the triangle.
All you can say is that the sum of the measures of the two unknown angles is
sum of values of the two angles =(180-76) degrees.

How do i get my calculator to do the trig problem Tan45=1? It is telling me Tan45=1.61977, and i know that isn't right.

Angles may be measured in three angles:degree, radian and gradians (grads).
tan(45 deg)=1
tan(45 radians)=1.61977
If your problems require angles to be measured in degrees, make sure that the calculator's angle unit is set to degrees.
In RUN screen press [SHIFT][MENU] (SetUp) select the angle line and press function key under the tab Deg (should be F1).

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.

When calculating trignometric values i always get a wrong answer what can i do to reset or delete memory for a casio fx82ms scientific calculator plz help

It is most likely that the angle unit is not set to correspond to the angle unit you are using in your problems. If your problems call for angle unit in degrees, set the calculator to do its calculations in degrees. If your problems require the radian angle unit, set your calculator accordingly.

TI-84 has problems converting between rectangular and polar. is there a fix for this?

The conversion from rectangular to polar coordinates requires the calculation of an angle . If the angle unit that the calculator is configured for is different from the one you have in mind, you get (not erroneous results) but unexpected ones.
If the angle unit under [MODE] is radian, the angle you get in the conversion is in radians. Similarly, if the angle unit is degree, the angle obtained after coordinate conversion is in degrees.

Check your angle unit and restart your calculations.

How to use the SIN botton EX: 25 x SIN(65)


Before starting to enter the angle measure to calculate the value of a trigonometric function (sine, cosine, tangent) you must make sure that the current angle unit (degree, radian, grad) the calculator is configured to be using is the same that your problem requires. For instance, if you are solving a problem in which the angles are given in degrees you must verify that the calculator is configured to work in degrees.

When calculator is turned on, the angle unit is reset to degrees, but just to make sure it still is, look at the display: It should show the indicator DEG. If the display indicator is not DEG press the key [DRG] once or twice until you see the DEG on the screen.
The angle unit being taken care of, we turn to the actual calculation
Usually, to calculate the sine of an angle, you enter the angle value, press the [SIN] key and hit [=]. As you can see the sine function eats the number stored in its current register and calculates its sine.

To make sure that the calculator is taking the sine of 65 and not of 25*65, I would enter the calculation as follows
[65 [SIN] [*] 25 [=] : the result should be 22.65769468
25[*][ ( ] 65 [SIN] [ ) ] [=]

In the last key sequence, the use of parentheses forces the calculator to pause all previous calculations and wait for the closing right parenthesis. When the right parenthesis is entered, the calculator takes care of the contents of the parentheses first, then resumes the operations entered before the parentheses.

Importance of checking the angle unit before a calculation

Let us perform the calculation with angle unit
  1. in degrees : 25* sin(65) = 22.65769468
  2. in radians : 25 *sin(65) = 20.67071699
As you can see, the two values are not very far apart and since you are expecting a value that does not exceed 25 you might want to check your result.

Hope it helps.

I have a SHARP EL-501W calculator and i am getting the wrong answers with the tan -1 function

The source of errors is most certainly due to the wrong schoice of angle unit (degree or radian). If the default angle unit set in your calculator is the degree, any value fed to the trigonometric functions (sin, cos, tan) is considered to be expressed in degrees. Consequently, if you calculate the arctangent ( tan^-1) of a value, the angle returend by that inverse trigonometric function is expressed implicitly in degrees.

Similarly if radian is the default angle unit in your calculator, any angle returned by an inverse trigonometric function (arcos, arcsin, arctan) is in radian.

Set the default angle unit as the one required by your problem at hand. This way, the angles returned will be in the right unit and you will not have a problem of interpretation.

Hope it helps.

Calculation with angle

You perform all calculations in complex mode. When you need to convert to angle amplitude, in the [RUN] screen press [OPTN][F3:CMPLX]
To obtain the angle press [Arg] ( complex number) [EXE]
To obtain the magnitude, amplitude press [Abs] (complex number) [EXE].
Since the [ANS] memory keeps only the last value calculated, you may have to store your result (the complex number) in a variable.

1+ 1 i [white right arrow under tan key to store] [ALPHA] H
Display shows 1+1i. Then
[Abs] [ALPHA] H [EXE] gives 1.414213562
[Arg] [ALPHA] H [EXE] gives 45

Hope it helps.

Trigonometric functions

Put the calculator in radian mode. Find the sine of the angle (sin(angle)), invert the result (1/x or x^(-1)). csc = 1 / sin
