The notation for minute is a single quotation, ' . To access this symbol, press the 2nd key, then the Angle key. The single quotation mark is the second option on the menu that comes up after pressing 2nd+Angle.

### Sin 43 degrees 30'

Press SIN 4 3 2ND [ANGLE] 1 3 0 2ND [ANGLE] 2 ENTER

2ND [ANGLE] 1 gives you the degrees symbol, 2ND [ANGLE] 2 gives you the minutes symbol. If you need seconds, use ALPHA ["] (on the + key).

Note that this usually won't give you an EXACT value, but only a ten-digit approximation.

### I have a TI-84 calculator. I can't figure out the exact buttons to press to find the sec of -1.2. It is supposed to be an answer in degrees.

First, check if the calculator is in degrees. Do this by pressing mode and selecting degrees (it should be about the third option down)

The TI-84 doesn't have a dedicated button for secant so you will just have to enter it as 1/cos(-1.2) or cos(-1.2)^-1

### Ti 84 mode a+bi you can not add 5 at 90 degrees to 5 at -90 degrees. You need to switch to exponential mode e^ and enter as 5 e^(pi/2i) this is ok for 180 degrees. however what do you do when...

You can add angle measures by hitting 2nd angle and choosing the degree option. Put this after a value (e.g. 90(degrees symbol)) and add you can add angles that way. Be sure that you are in degree mode when doing this (you can use the radian symbol for adding radians too). Still, this is a very tedious process and I recommend just adding angles as regular values (e.g. 90 + 200 = 290) and correcting for degrees manually.

### How do you put degrees mins & secs in a ti 84 plus

The DMS symbols are available under the ANGLE menu
Press [2nd][APPS] (ANGLE)
Under that menu you find the degree and minute symbol. To enter the seconds unit you use the key sequence [ALPHA][+] (")
To enter 1deg 15 minutes and 37 seconds
1 [2nd][APPS] [1:deg] 15[2nd][Apps][2:'] 37 [ALPHA] [+]

To enter a number in decimal degrees (eg 15.37)
1. If angle unit is the degree just enter 15.37
2. If angle unit is the radian , you must specify the angle unit as degrees: To enter 15.37 degrees you type 15.37 [2nd][Apps][1: degree] [ENTER].
To convert from DMS to DD and from DD to DMS, you use the sequence [2nd][Apps][4:|=>DMS].

Your calculator is set in radians. Press mode key. Arrow down to 3rd line. Highlight degree and press enter. Your calculator is now in degrees, not radians. To get out of the mode screen and back to home screen, press 2nd and then mode.
