Hi have a problem, i must work out cot 78 and the answer is 0.213, but i get the wong answer everytime. my calculator is set to degrees but i cant seem to get that answer, can anyone help me please?

I don't have a Cot button but Cot x = 1/Tan x so enter

1/Tan 78 = 0.212556 etc if you have a fraction button you can write it that way too:

1 frac button Tan 78 = 0.212556 etc

Your right you should be in degree mode. However, my guess is you are somehow entering in cot wrong in your calc. Recall cot = 1/tan! In your graphing calculator enter: 35(1/tan(61) = 19.4.

Hope this helped!

I will not try to guess what that diameter represents, so I will give you all mensuration formulas for the area of a regular polygon.

**s** is the measure of the side,** r** the radius of the inscribed circle, **R** the radius of the circumscribed circle, and **n** the number of sides.

If the angle unit in your calculator is the degree, use 180 instead of Pi. Use the formulas with PI if angle unit is set to radians.

In the formulas on the last line of the display screen (the formulas with sine functions) the radius r should be R (circumscribed circle radius). cot is the reciprocal of the tangent function**(cot(x)=1/tan(x) )**

SEC, CSC & COT are the INVERSE of COS, SIN & TAN and are usually require hitting the "2nd F" or "Func" key of the calc to make:

SIN button work as COSEC,

COS button work as SEC

TAN button work as COT

Formulas are below:

sec x = __1 __

cos x

cosec x = __ 1
__

sin x

cot x = __ 1 __ = __cos x__

tan x sin x

Good luck!

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).

Well it depends. If the hexagon is irregular (sides are not equal) there is no formula to calculate the sides as they can have arbitrary values. You must measure them.

If the hexagon is regular you may be able to relate the measure of a side to the radius of the circle in which it is inscribed. If you have the radius of the circle, the side is equal to the radius. If you have the value of perimeter you divide that value by 6.

There is also a formula that relates the area of the hexagon to the measure of the side s. The formula is Area=(6/4)(s^2)cot(PI/6), where cot is the cotangent function, its angle is in radian. In degrees Pi/6 is 30 degrees.

To enter powers of trigonometric functions you must enclose the functions in parentheses and then apply the exponent to the whole. For example X1t =(sin T)^3 , Y1t=(cos T)^3 will give you a shape similar to a rhombus with concave sides. The symbol ^syands for the operation of raising to a power. The key is the one with the caret symbol ^ , and it is wedged between the xsqure and EXIT keys (third row of keys).

As regards the cotangent, use the equivalent definition cot(X)=1/tan(X).

well there is no cot function on this calculator so you have to use the identity. Cot is 1/tan so the inverse cot is 1/inverse tan which is on this calculator so = 1/arctan(-4)

Press the relevant function key [SIN],[COS],[TAN] followed by the angle value.

For inverse trigonometric functions [SIN^-1], COS^-1], or [TAN^-1], Press [SHIFT][SIN], [SHIFT][COS], or [SHIFT][TAN].

For other functions

sec(x)=1/cos(x)

csc(x)=1/sin(x)

cot(x)=1/tan(x)

When calculating trigonometric functions one must make sure that the angle unit the calculator is using is the correct one.

If you remember that by definition cot(theta)=1/tan(theta) your expression can be calculated as 28/tan(30). Use parentheses if necessary to enclose the whole tan(30) factor.

Before calculating any trigonometric function make sure that the angle unit is set correctly. In your case I presume that 30 means 30 degrees. Use the [DRG] key to cycle through the angle units.

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).
