# I am working with a casio fx-250d on tangent, sine, and cosine ratios. I need to switch the mode from GRA to DEG. How can I do that?

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).
goodluck!

go to MODE
scroll down twice
hit the right button
then hit enter...  :)

Alot of people seem to be having this problem. Angles can be measured in two units, degrees and radians. Your calculator is currently doing everything in terms of radians. I have an 84 but I'm sure the 83 is similar, go under MODE and look for Degrees and Radians and make sure you choose degrees. if you have to convert, 360[degrees] = 2* pi [radians]
(easy to remember, 360deg in a circle, 2pi radians in a circle)
Good luck

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

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

SOURCE: How do I find inverse

First, make sure the calculator is set to degrees (2nd [FORMAT] down-arrow).

Put in the value, press INV, the appropriate function key, and =.

For example, to find the inverse sine of .3, press
. 3 INV [SIN] =

SOURCE: it is giving the wrong

Make sure you have the proper angular mode set. Press MODE to bring up the mode screen. Use the arrow keys to highlight either Radian or Degree on the third line and press ENTER. Press 2ND [QUIT] to exit the mode screen.

### Inverse sine function

The sine and cosine function have a range between [-1, 1]. The domain of their inverse functions is [-1,1]. So 20/1 which is 20 is out of the domain of definition of the functions. No limitations for tangent and cotangent.

### The tangent and inverse tangent offer the incorrect sollution. whould i simply get a new calculator?

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).

### I can't seem to be able to figure out how to find the cosine tangent or sine of an angle...Help?

Unlike traditional calculators, the FX9750G uses textbook order to call functions. For example, to calculate the sine of 45°, you key in (angle argument unit set to degrees assumed):

[sin] 45 [EXE]

Cosine and tangent are analogous. Argument format can be degrees, radians or grad. You can set up the angle argument unit by keying in:

[SHIFT] [SETUP] [v] [v] [v] [v] and then
• [F1] (Deg) [EXIT] for degrees (1 full circle = 360°),
• [F3] (Grad) [EXIT] for grad (1 full circle = 400 gon).

### How do i use trigonometry to find out the angle in a triangle? which buttons do i press?

Sorry to say it, bu Mathematics is not Mathemagic: you cannot do things with the shaking of a wand.

There are several ways to find one angle in a right triangle when you have the measures of the sides. You must have the triangle drawn in front of you and then decide if you use the sine, the cosine or the tangent. I cannot presume to know what your triangle looks like.

I suggest you look at the definitions of the trigonometric ratios and find out what is given in your problem.

If you use a ratio to find the cosine, you can then use the arcsine function to find the angle.
If you use one particular ratio to find the sine, you can then use the arcsine to find the angle.

If you know two sides a and b and you know the angle (B) opposite side b, you can use the sine formula (sin(A)/a=sin(B)/b) to determine sin(A) then use the arcsine of the result to get angle A.

### I'm just beginning to learn about trigonometric functions (sin, cosine & tangent). My math book says for a problem such as "4 cos 75.8", I should press 4, x, 75.8, cos, = (in that order)....

Try 4 x cos 7 5 . 8 =

The fx-300MS is a more advanced calculator than what the book is describing. It evaluates cosine(x) as cos x rather than x, cos.

### DEG mode

The DEG indicator has absolutely nothing to do with division, fraction or other operations. It is relevant only when you are calculating trigonometric functions (Sine, Cosine Tangent and their inverse functions.)

When you are calculating trigonometric functions the results depend on the angle unit the calculator is configured for
DEG >> angle values are in degrees.

From the equivalence 180 deg =Pi radians you get

The DEG indicator merely reminds you that angles are in DEG. If you change the unit to RADians the RAD indicator will be displayed instread.

### My casio calculator cfx is coming up with 'syn error' everytime I type in a sine cosin or tangent problem

Hello,
I believe you are not pressing the keys in the right order.
If you know how to set angle unit, skip this part and go to Exemples

If you want to calculate the sine , cosine or tangent of an angle given in degrees, the calculator must have the angle unit set to degrees. To do so :Turn calculator ON, scroll to [RUN] icon and press [EXE] then [SHIFT][SETUP]. On the fifth line angle must be set Degrees. If it is not in degrees, press the key correspondig to menu deg (F1)
(If you have to use the Radian as unit of angle, that is where you set it.)
So your angle is in degrees.
Exemples
To calculate the sine of 15 degrees press [SIN] 15 [EXE].
If expression inside the sine is complicated or contains diverse operations use parentheses as in the exemple
[SIN] [(] 90/2 -180/3 [)] [EXE].
You proceed the same way for cosine, or tangent.

Hope it helps.

### Inverse Functions on Casio fx-270W PLUS don't seem to work

because cotangent, cosecant, and secant are all inverse trig functions, just type in 1 / |shift| trig function and the number if you are finding the angles. It might not be a dedicated button, but its an extra push, and it will give you the same result. *note that I put the shift press only because that is how you get the inverse tan to get an angle from a tan ratio.*
