Question about Casio FX-115ES Scientific Calculator

Ad

Are you giving it a number between -1 and +1? Arcsine and Arccosine have non-real results for arguments have magnitudes larger than one.

SOURCE: i have CASIO fx115d, i pushed some buttons and i

When it is on. Try to hit MODE then 0, and MODE then 4. And thats it.

SOURCE: cos+tan(sin)=sec

This is a trigonometry problem not a calculator's.**cos(x) +tan(x).sin(x) = ( cos(x) + (sin(x)/cos(x)).sin(x)**. After reduction to the same denominator (which is cos(x)) you obtain

{cos(x).cos(x) + sin(x).sin(x)} divided by cos(x).

The content of the bracket above is just 1.

Your fraction will have 1 as numerator and cos(x) as denomitor. That is exactly the definition of the secant function i.e. Function **sec** is the **reciprocal** (not the inverse) of the **cos** function, while the **arccos **is the inverse of **cos**.

A mild advice: Avoid writing function without specifying the argument (the variable on which a function acts).

SOURCE: sin, cos, or tan, on casio wrong answer. another cac right answer

Hello,

It may be due to the angle unit used. You can have angles in degrees, in radians, and in grads. You should set the default angle unit to waht you problem calls for.

To set degree as default SHIFT MODE 3

To set radians as default SHIFT MODE 4

To set grads as default SHIFT MODE 5

The values of angles calculated by the inverse trigonometric functions are in the default unit that is set . This may be the source of the wrong answers that you get.

Hope it helps.

SOURCE: how to do inverse of tan cos sin

The inverse trigonometric function share each the same physical key with its direct function. The inverse trigonometric functions are accessed with the [SHIFT] key

[SHIFT] [SIN] accesses the arcsine

[SHIFT][COS] accesses the arccosine

and [SHIFT][TAN] the arctangent.

You can do it; whenever you like. It sill be better to do it, just past Midnight.

Let's start with a little background.

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 radians the answer is -1.0307 radians.

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

I hope this helps you out.

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?Â¹, cos?Â¹, tan?Â¹), 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?Â¹, cosh?Â¹, tanh?Â¹), 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.

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)

Hello,

You have 3 keys for the main trigonometric functions: [SIN], [COS] and [TAN]

To use them correctly you must set the angle unit to the one your problem calls for.

Press [SIFT][MODE] [3:Deg] for degree, [4:Rad] for radian, [5:Grad] for grad. Dependig on angle unit chosen a small D, R, or G appears on the top of the screen.

If you need the inverse trigonometric functions arcsine, arccosine, arctangent, you access them by first pressing the [SHIFT] key

Thus

arcsine [SHIFT][SIN] (sin^-1)

arcosine [SHIFT][COS] (cos^-1)

arctangent [SHIFT][TAN] (tan^-1)

The syntax for the function is

[SIN] # [ ) ] [=]; [SIN] 30 [ ) ] [=] gives 0.5

[COS] # [ ) ] [=] [COS] 19 [ ) ] [=] gives 0.945518576

Note: if the argument of the functions are numbers, the right parenthesis is not necessary. But if the argument is an expression (with various operations) better put the parenthesis to make sure the calculator is performing as one wants it to.

By the way, there are no keys, or key combinations to calculate cotangent, cosecant, and secant, but you can use the definitions:

**cotangent (x) = 1/tan(x) Do not confuse it with tan^-1**

**cosecant(x) = 1/sin(x) Do not confuse it with sin^-1**

**secant(x) = 1/cos(x) Do not confuse it with cos^-1**

Hope it helps.

You should buy a dog that takes you on walks.

Then you won't have the problem that you have.

I shall attempt :D

1) cosec A + cot A = 3

we know that (cot A)^2 + 1 = (cosec A)^2

Hence, (cosec A)^2 - (cot A)^2 = 1

thus, (cosec A + cot A) (cosec A - cot A) = 1

3 (cosec A - cot A) = 1

(cosec A - cot A) = 1/3

(cosec A - cot A) = 1/3

(cosec A + cot A) = 3

Summing them, 2 cosec A = 3 1/3

cosec A = 6 2/3 = 5/3

sin A = 0.15

Thus, cos A = sqrt (1 - (sin A)^2) = 0.989

2) Prove that (1+tan x - sec x)(1 + cot x + cosec x) =2

expand

LHS= 1 + cot x + cosec x + tan x + 1 + tan x cosec x - sec x - sec x cot x - sec x cosec x

We can calculate that

tan x cosec x = sec x (since tan x = sin x / cos x)

sec x cot x = cosec x

so the above is

LHS = 1 + cot x + cosec x + tan x + 1 + sec x - sec x - cosec x - sec x cosec x

LHS = 2 + cot x + tan x - sec x cosec x

LHS = 2 + cos x / sin x + sin x / cos x - 1 / (sin x cos x)

LHS = 2 + [{cos x}^2 + {sin x}^2 - 1] / (sin x cos x)

LHS = 2 (proved)

1) cosec A + cot A = 3

we know that (cot A)^2 + 1 = (cosec A)^2

Hence, (cosec A)^2 - (cot A)^2 = 1

thus, (cosec A + cot A) (cosec A - cot A) = 1

3 (cosec A - cot A) = 1

(cosec A - cot A) = 1/3

(cosec A - cot A) = 1/3

(cosec A + cot A) = 3

Summing them, 2 cosec A = 3 1/3

cosec A = 6 2/3 = 5/3

sin A = 0.15

Thus, cos A = sqrt (1 - (sin A)^2) = 0.989

2) Prove that (1+tan x - sec x)(1 + cot x + cosec x) =2

expand

LHS= 1 + cot x + cosec x + tan x + 1 + tan x cosec x - sec x - sec x cot x - sec x cosec x

We can calculate that

tan x cosec x = sec x (since tan x = sin x / cos x)

sec x cot x = cosec x

so the above is

LHS = 1 + cot x + cosec x + tan x + 1 + sec x - sec x - cosec x - sec x cosec x

LHS = 2 + cot x + tan x - sec x cosec x

LHS = 2 + cos x / sin x + sin x / cos x - 1 / (sin x cos x)

LHS = 2 + [{cos x}^2 + {sin x}^2 - 1] / (sin x cos x)

LHS = 2 (proved)
