The correct key is the key showing 1/X. This key will give you the reciprocal.

An alternate symbol is x~1 (x raised minus 1)

Hi,
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
The service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
Good luck!

It does. For instance, to get the reciprocal of 4, enter the following sequence: 4 [1/x] (this last key to be found third row down, second black key in). The decimal 0.25 will appear as the result. Convert this, if you want, to the fraction 1/4 by pressing the yellow function key [2nd], then {F<>D] located bottom, far left. Hope that's what you wanted!

### How do I find the reciprocal of a number

Enter the number and press the = sign.
With the number displayed, press the power key (marked as [X^y], [Y^x] or [^]) followed by exponent -1.
OR while the number is stored in Ans memory, enter 1 / Ans.
Some calculators have a special key for the reciprocal. It is marked as [x^-1]. By pressing the reciprocal key while number is displayed, you calculate its reciprocal.

### Where is the consecant key

There isn't a cosecant key. Use the relationship
csc(x) = 1 / sin(x)

Compute the sine and take its reciprocal.

### Find csc(-330°) to the nearest hundredth

The cosecant function does not have a specific key on any calculator because it can be easily calculated as the reciprocal of sine.
Thus csc(-330°)=1/sin(-330°)=2
sin(-330°)=sin(360°-330°)=sin(30°)=0.5
csc(-330°)=1/0.5=2
If you do not want to be bothered with these facts, just calculate the sine of -330° and take the reciprocal of the result using the [x^-1] key. For the minus sign before 330, use the change sign key (-). Close the right parenthesis.

### Log & reciprocal functions

There is no log (base 10) button on a TI-89. It's buried in the CATALOG as log(. As a shortcut, you can do ln(#)/ln(base), where # and base are replaced with what you want. For the inverse of a log, do the base raised to the part on the other side of the equals sign. So, log(x) = 2 would become 10^2 = x.
