Question about Sharp EL-531VB Calculator

I found the manual on the internet so I could look it up myself.

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).

click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.

goodluck!

You can switch between Rads/Deg/Grads. Deg is the one you want to use. So, to answer your question, the "DEG" is suppose to be there so that you know what mode you are using. If you don't have the manual, here it is:

You don't.

Angles can be measured using three different units: degrees (360 degrees in a circle), radians (2pi radians in a circle), or grads (400 grads in a circle).

Pressing the DRG key cycles through the three modes. No matter which mode you select, one of the annunciators will appear on the screen to indicate the current mode.

Press g DEG to switch to degrees or g RAD to switch to radians.

The calculator has three different angular modes: DEGrees, RADians, and GRADs. Whichever one it's currently set to, the display will indicate it. To switch between the three modes, press the DRG key.

No, you don't need a new calculator. Yours simply has the angular mode set to grads. The inverse tangent of 1 is 50 grads, the inverse tangent of sqrt(3) is 66.6... grads.

To change the angular mode, press MODE one or more times until you get the display "Deg Rad Gra". Select the mode you want (from the results you're expecting, it's 1 for Deg).

Why do you want to get out od Degree mode. If you are doing trigonometric calculations, the angle unit is pertinent. If you are not doing trigonometry, it is irrelevant. You say you can cycle through DEG, RAD, GRAD. That is the way to set the angle unit.

**However, there will always be an indicator on the screen (DEG, RAD, or GRAD). **

The calculator has three angle units you can work with: DEG for degrees, RAD for radians and GRAD for grads. A full circle has 360 degrees, 2*PI radians and 400 grads. Your calculator must have one of these angle units set. Whichever is set, the screen displays a reminder DEG, RAD, or GRAD.

**Unless you are doing trigonometric calculations, the angle unit HAS NO INCIDENCE on the calculations, and cannot screw up anything**. An even if you are doing trigonometric calculations, the calculator will still give you the CORRECT results expressed in the set unit.

If its is not giving you the correct result (according to your expectations) all you have to do it to set the angle unit to the one required by your problem.

It may be a good idea to take a look at the user's manual to familiarize yourself with and take full advantage of its capabilities.

Your calculator is set for GRAD instead of DEG, it means that it takes your input in gradian instead of degrees. You should press the DRG button until it displays DEG instead of GRAD.

Is there a button marked DEG->? That is the standard calculator button used to change mode. It could possibly be the shift function of another button.

Read the screen capture about the MODES of this calculators. DEG,RAD, and GRAD remind the user that the angle units in trigonometric function calculations and coordinate conversions are in degrees, radians or grads. They have nothing to do with the other calculations you are doing.

You can only remove DEG by changing the angle unit to RADians or GRADs. In so doing, the new unit indicator (RAD, GRAD) will be displayed instead. There is no point worrying about the angle unit indicator unless you are performing coordinate conversions or calculating trigonometric functions or the inverse trigonometric functions.

MODE 9 cancels the FIX display format: decimal are displayed with a fixed number of decimal places (set by the user). After this key sequence the decimal display format reverts to NORM(al).
