Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

# Hello, I am trying to complete a problem within the CSC course and I can not get my staples calculator to calculate it properly. Here are the details: semi annual payments on a 9% 4-year bond with a par of \$100, discounted 10% number of compounding periods = 8 (I put in then selected N) discount rate = 5 (half of 10% for semi annual. I typed in 5 then selected 1/Y which i think may be the issue, but i don't know what other one to select. coupon payment = 4.5 (I selected PMT) then I need to solve for PV which the book says should be \$29.0845. any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks

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!

### How do i get sec csc and cot on my fx82ms calculator

Use the cosine, sine, and tangent buttons on your calculator and invert them with x ^ -1 key.

For example, csc = 1/sin. So for csc 30 degrees, so sin 30 degrees, then hit the x^-1 key.

Good luck.

### How do I find the csc of an angle

The cosecant of an angle is one divided by the sine of the angle. As an example, to calculate csc(2), press SIN 2 ) x^-1 or 1 / SIN 2 =

### TI-36X won't let me take the CSC(1.5). I keep getting

No calculator can have EVERY mathematical function. Very few calculators have the secondary trig functions like cosecant because they're so simple to calculate in other ways. By definition csc(x) is equal to 1/sin(x) and you can calculate it that way. Similarly, calculate sec(x) as 1/cos(x) and cot(x) as 1/tan(x).

### Find a calculator approximation for each circular function value. csc (-9.4946) The answer in the solutions manual is 14.3338 by imputing sin (-9.4946) = .0698 ans^-1 approx. 14.3338 ?

I am not sure if there really is a question here. The cosecant function is defined as the reciprocal of the sine function : csc(x)=1/sin(x)
You can calculate two ways. [ ] is a single key press, [(-)] is the change sign key.

csc(-9.4946)=1[/][sin] [(-)] 9.4946[)] [EXE]

The other way is to just calculate sin(-9.4946). the result will be stored in ANS memory. At this time, if you press the key [x^-1] you are calculating the reciprocal of the result stored in ANS.

Both methods yield the same result.

### How do i get my casio fx-115 ES to let me use sec csc cot

The calculator doesn't have those functions built-in. Use the relationships sec(x) = 1/cos(x), csc(x) = 1/sin(x), and cot(x) = 1/tan(x).

### Find csc(-330°) to the nearest hundredth

The cosecant function does not have a specific key on any calculator because it can be easily calculated as the reciprocal of sine.
Thus csc(-330°)=1/sin(-330°)=2
sin(-330°)=sin(360°-330°)=sin(30°)=0.5
csc(-330°)=1/0.5=2
If you do not want to be bothered with these facts, just calculate the sine of -330° and take the reciprocal of the result using the [x^-1] key. For the minus sign before 330, use the change sign key (-). Close the right parenthesis.

[SIN] [(-)] 330 [)] [x^-1]

### Csc, sec functions

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.
