When i try to do sin(53.1) it gives me .302 wich i know is inaccurate. when i plug that answer into sin^(-1)(.302) it gives me .307. i dont know what is wrong with it but it should be giving me 53.1 when i plug that back in not to mention that the sign of 53.1 is about .8 not .302

It seems you're working with radians on whatever product or software you're using. sin(53.1rad)=0.302... while sin(53.1degrees)=0.799... which is what you said you expected. Make sure you set degrees as your mode and you'll get your expected results. Thanks for using Fixya!

Do you enter sin 30 to get answer or 30 sin

Set the angle unit to degrees.
Try sin (30)=, and 30 sin
Usually if pressing the sin key display sin( then you should use sin(angle) =.

Hi How do i do sin inverse on my calculator. I have tried shift then sin (which is sin inverse) and then the sum but it gives the wrong answer?

You may be working in degrees when you need to be in radians, or vice versa.

Press the MODE button until it offers you the choice D R G (Degrees, radians, grads) and select the corresponding number. Then try again.

How would you do a =14sin85/sin53

Input the following key combination:
• 14
• [*]
• [sin]
• 85
• [ ) ]
• [ ÷ ]
• [sin]
• 53
• [ ) ]
• [ = ]
You should get something that looks like 14*SIN(85)÷SIN(53)

Any sin, cos, or tan function problem always gives the incorrect answer. I can use my TI 55 that is 30 years old and get the correct answer, but my son's TI84 plus silver edition is incapable of giving the...

Make sure you have the proper angular mode set. The TI-84 can work with degrees or radians.

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.

If this doesn't do it, please reply to this post giving an example of a calculation and the answer you're getting from the calculator.

TI89 is giving wrong answer for the integral of sec(x). Please help. It gives the answer as: ln[ |cos(x) / (sin(x)-1)| ] when it should be ln[ |(sin(x)-1) / cos(x)| ]. Why is it giving the wrong...

Hi danagasta,

If my last instructions did not work then you need to reset your RAM. You are missing the negative sign and, I have no idea where you got the absolute value inside the brackets.
Yes, the absolute value are used in books and, on integral tables but, I can asure you that the Ti 89 should not have produce them in this answer.

I'll stand behind that In( -cos(x) / (sin(x)-1)) is the correct answer. You can go ahead and simplify after the calculation to get the answer you want but, that is the good answer that Ti 89 is going to give you for the integral of sec(x).

Errors that do not match the suspected, I am pretty sure that Texas Instruments would have you clear the RAM. I do not like resetting the RAM but, I could not find the cause to why you got the answer you did. And so far no other expert has produced a solution to convince me otherwise.

I was not able to come up with any of the 3 answers MiB8888 did on my Ti 89. I am not saying that they are not good answers, they are book and integral tables answers. You are not going to get them on the Ti 89.

Wrong answer produced in sin / cos problems?

5sin(x)+1 = 0 is the equation you want to solve?
so
5sin(x) = -1
sin(x) = -(1/5)
arcsin( sin(x) ) = arcsin( -(1/5) )
x = -11.5369 (degrees)

Ti-89 titanium SIN!!!!!

The answer that you have received in actuality is correct. However, it is in exact form when the answer that you were looking for was an approximation (decimal form) answer. To achieve this all you have to do is hit the alpha button (the yellow button with a diamond in the center) and then enter which will give you your desired answer :-)
