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:

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).

Press the [MODE] button a certain number of times until display shows a rectangle inside which Deg Rad Gradappear on the top line and 1 2 3 on bottom line, with 1 under Deg, 2 under Rad, and 3 under Grad.

Press 1.

Hi,

To change the default angle unit, you press the [MODE] button a certain number of times until display shows a rectangle inside which**Deg Rad Grad **appear on the top line and 1 2 3 on bottom line, with 1 under Deg, 2 under Rad, and 3 under Grad.

Press the number key corresponding to your case, 1. All angle values you feed the trigonometric functions will be considered to be in degrees. If you use the inverse trigonometric functions to find angles, the results will be in degrees.

Hope it helps.

Under the screen you can see atable of values at the right of which is written MODE followed by a small arrow.

If you want to set the degree as angle unit, you press the MODE key followed by 4 (as seen in the table I was referring to).

Similarly, if you want to set RAD as the angle unit you press MODE then 5; and MODE then 6 for GRAD.

However if you just want to convert a number displayed on the screen in RADs or GRADs into DEGs , you press SHIFT then MODE then 4. your number should be converted from the unit it was expressed in into degrees.

Same thing if you want to convert into RADs: SHIFT then MODE then 5.

Hope it helps.

I do not think that the DEG and FIX indicators are preventing you from calculating any logarithm. DEG appears to remind you that the CURRENT angle unit is the degree. You can change it to RAD or GRAD if you have to use those units. However, DEG will disappear only if replaced with RAD or GRAD.

The indicator FIX reminds you that the display mode for the results is the FIXed mode, not the SCIentific mode. In the FIX mode you specify the number of decimal digits from 0 to 9 and all your results will show the set number of decimals. So if all your results have a lot of unnecessary 0, maybe you should set the FIX mode to fewer decimal digits.

If you still have a problem with the calculation of logarithms, maybe the syntax you use is incorrect.

Try number then log

If that does not work

try log then number.

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).

set it up in correct rig mode, mode button (several times) until you get a window showing deg - rad - grad, choose deg (degree mode)

Sorry, but I think you misunderstood what the manual says. See the not on the screen capture.

True the sentence is not very clear, but what it means is the following:

All modes (except COMP) will have an indicator (with the appropriate labeling) displayed. When in COMP mode the COMP indicator is not displayed.

The truth of the matter is that computation- wise you have two MODES only : the general COMPutational mode and the Standard Deviation (SD Statistics) MODE. These two are incompatible because the key layout is different.

But to compute trig functions

- calculator must not be in SD mode, hence it is in COMP mode
- An angle unit must be shown on display.
