My assignment is using SIN, COS, and TAN; and it says to type the information in the calculator and hit the "Inv" button and the hit the "Tan" button... I am so confused...

Re: I can not find the "Inv" button...

There is an inverse button below the math button, but if you hit second and the tan it should give you the inverse of tan. Hope this is what you wanted

SEC, CSC & COT are the INVERSE of COS, SIN & TAN and are usually require hitting the "2nd F" or "Func" key of the calc to make:

SIN button work as COSEC,

COS button work as SEC

TAN button work as COT

Formulas are below:

sec x = __1 __

cos x

cosec x = __ 1
__

sin x

cot x = __ 1 __ = __cos x__

tan x sin x

Good luck!

To get the inverse trigonometric functions press the 2nd key then the trig function key. If you'll look at the key legends above the SIN, COS, and TAN keys you'll see the standard math notations for their inverse function.

The INV key that you may find on some scientific calculators has, on the TI 83/84/ Plus calculators, an equivalent key marked [2nd].

On the TI83/84 Plus, each trigonometric function has a second marking [SIN^-1], [COS^-1] or [TAN^-1]. To calculate the inverses of trigonometric functions ( arc sine, arc cosine, arc tangent) you press [2nd] followed by the relevant trigonometric function key For example, [2nd] [SIN] displays sin^-1( on the command line.

Unfortunately the hyperbolic functions and their inverses are only accessed through the CATALOG. You press [2nd][0] to open the CATALOG. Then you scroll down the CATALOG list to reach cosh(, cosh^-(, sinh(, sinh^-1(, tanh(, or tanh^-1(.

To speed the search in the catalog, you use the ALPHA keyboard: To reach cosh(, press[PRGM] and you scroll down from there.

I'm going to use sin(90°) as an example. You would hit the sin button, type in 90, then hit ). You must type in the close parenthesis or the calculator won't read it correctly. The answer should be 1.

The trigonometric function [SIN],[COS] and [TAN] have inverse functions arc-sine, arc-cosine, and arc-tangent which are also implemented on scientific calculators. To access the inverse trigonometric functions you use the sequences [SHIFT][SIN], [SHIFT][COS] and [SHIFT][TAN]. The functions are marked on the body of the calculator as [SIN^-1], [COS^-1] and [TAN^-1].

When you use these functions, make sure that the angle unit is correctly set (as required by the problem you are solving) because the angle values returned are in the same unit as the one set.

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:

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.

Press the relevant function key [SIN],[COS],[TAN] followed by the angle value.

For inverse trigonometric functions [SIN^-1], COS^-1], or [TAN^-1], Press [SHIFT][SIN], [SHIFT][COS], or [SHIFT][TAN].

For other functions

sec(x)=1/cos(x)

csc(x)=1/sin(x)

cot(x)=1/tan(x)

When calculating trigonometric functions one must make sure that the angle unit the calculator is using is the correct one.

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 :-)
