My textbook states that the solution of tangent 37 is 0.7536, but when I enter TAN 37 ENTER in my calculator it comes up with -.8407712554. Do I have to program it to a certain criteria to get the answer. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: sin cos tan

37 is in degrees. so if your dealing with degrees you need to go to and change the mode. hit the mode button next to the 2nd button and go down to and change it from degree from radian by going to degree and hitting enter

Thank you!!

To get the tangent of an angle, press "tan", enter the angle, and press "=".

See the example for sin on page E-10 of this manual: http://support.casio.com/pdf/004/fx-82ES_etc_E.pdf, replacing the "sin" with "tan".

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:

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.

By definition

On this calculator, you have two ways to calculate one of these functions. EX cosecant of 37 degrees

- cosecant of X =1/sin(X), must not be confused with arc sine [sin^-1]
- secant of X =1/cos(X), must not be confused with arc cosine [cos^-1]
- cotangent of X =1/tan(X), must not be confused with arc tangent [tan^-1]

On this calculator, you have two ways to calculate one of these functions. EX cosecant of 37 degrees

- You enter 1 / [sin] 37 [ ) ] [ENTER] result is 1.661640141
- You enter [sin] [ ) ] 37 [ENTER] followed by [X^-1] to take the reciprocal of the previous answer. The [X^-1] key is the one just below [MATH].

Hello,

1.Set the correct angle unit required by your problem: degrees, radians, or grads. [SHIFT][MODE] [3:deg] or [4:Rad]

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.

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.

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.

Hello,

I have not yet seen a calculator that has a dedicated key for the cosecant , secant, nor cotangente functions, because they are directly connected with the sine, the cosine, and the tangente.

Cosecant (x) = 1/sin(x)

Secant (x) = 1/cos(x)

Cotangente(x) = 1/tan(x)

Do not confuse these functions with the inverse trigonometric functions, usually represented as

arccosine = arccos; on calculators cos^-1,

arcsine = arcsin ; on calculators sin^-1

arctangent= arctan ; on aclculators tan^-1

Hope it helps.
