Use the Rec function (shift of the - key).

Rec(r,t) converts a polar value of magnitude r and angle t in the current angular mode. The real value is assigned to X and the imaginary value is assigned to Y.

Use the Pol function (shift of the + key) for the reverse.

It's on page E-37 of the manual. If you've misplaced your manual, you can download a new one from http://www.casio.com/support/manuals

First set casio fx115es to complex mode, which is done by clicking on mode then #2. 2nd, make sure you casio is set to Degree not Radian or anything else. Do this by clicking Shift then mode then click #3.

So, if you have a rectangular problem like this: 3.866+j1.013 --- and you want to turn that Rectangular to polar, you would hit Shift then + key (POL - for polar). Then type in 3.866 then hit shift comma, which is the closed paranthesis then type in 1.013 then close the paranthesis. So, on your Calc screen it would look like this

Pol ( 3.866, 1.013)

r = 3.99673
0 = 14.6952

The zero above represents Theta. Hope this helps.

### How do I add or subtract numbers in polar form or rectengular form

If one or both numbers are in polar form, convert it/them to rectangular. Once both numbers are in rectangular form, simply add the two components separately: Add the two x components together, and add the two y components together.

If you're asking how to do this on a particular calculator, please specify the make and model.

### Polar to rectangular conversion working incorrectly

At first, Rect and Polar are a display-format instructions, not a conversion functions. Polar instruction displays complex value in rectangular form a + bi. The complex value can have any complex form. However, an r*exp(i*theta) causes an eror in Degree angle mode according to the TI avowal. See captured images below
