Question about Texas Instruments TI-83 Plus Calculator
Whenever i press sin, cos, or tan, put in a number, and press enter, a wrong answer always comes up. when i do it another calculator, the correct answer comes up. how can i fix this problem? i know there is a way to do this.
Here are the steps in changing it from radian to degrees
1. turn on your TI-83 plus
2. press the MODE button near the top of your calculator
3.go down to options and move the highlight from radian to degree, press enter and clear
you're good to go

I love you so much! thank you thank you thank you!
Thank you so much!!! THANKS THANKS THANKS!!! OMG THANKS
It's still not working for me and my answer are couple decimals off

Just change the mode... from "rad" to "deg"
Posted on Mar 17, 2007
To extract an angular degree from a sin, cos, or tan (reciprocal), use [2nd][TAN], [SIN], or [COS]. For example ... To get the angular degree for tan .5760, cycle [DRG] to set the entry mode to "DEG", then enter [.5760][2nd][TAN]. This calls the yellow function above the [TAN] key, TAN^-1^ and returns the decimal result 29.94. To change the display mode to show degrees, minutes, and seconds (DMS) with [2nd][=]. To change the display back to decimal use [2nd][+]. Note that to use degrees in calculations they must be in decimal mode. To convert the result between deg, rad, or grad, cycle [2nd][DRG].

Umm, isnt that where you press MODE and change it from radian to degrees?

For the TI-30Xa ... set entery mode to "deg" with [DRG], then input number and press [SIN], [COS], OR [TAN]. Most functions on that model require the pattern number, function. Here's a link to the TI-30Xa user manual in PDF format ... http://www.usm.maine.edu/math/120D/TI30xa.pdf

CONVERSELY ...
To extract the angular degree from a sin, cos, or tan, use [2nd][SIN], [COS], or [TAN], respectively. For example ...
To get the angular degree for tan .5760, cycle [DRG] to set the entry mode to "DEG", then enter [.5760][2nd][TAN]. This calls the yellow function above the [TAN] key, TAN^-1^ and returns the angle as a decimal ... 29.94.
To change the display mode to show degrees, minutes, and seconds (DMS), use [2nd][=]. To change the display back to decimal, use [2nd][+]. Note: to use degree values in calculations they must be in decimal display mode.
To convert the result between deg, rad, or grad, cycle [2nd][DRG].

I'm not too sure what the actual problem is.
If the problem has nothing to deal with your mode not being in deg then I think it might be your input method.
Maybe you can provide an example?
Such as... sin 90.
So what you said is, you enter...
1)sin
2)number (in this case 90)
3)enter [=]
This will appear to be 90 on your F-502, which is obviously incorrect. For some strange reason, it operates different and you have to enter it in the different order.
Instead, try this:
1)number (in this case 90)
2)sin
This should give you an answer, without having to press enter [=], of 1, which is in fact correct.

On your calculator, check to make sure it is on degrees instead of radian. maybe that's why. hope i helped.

CHECK YOUR MODE TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE IN DEGREES OR IN RADIANS

To solve this problem locate the mode button on your TI83 calculator , press this and come down to where you see radian. once here use the right arrow to move to degree then press enter and clear.

Whats the diff between radians and degrees, like will it effect regular calculations?

Make sure it's in the right mode, i.e. radians, degress. check it under set up

Make sure your Ti-30xs is in deg. mode you can check this by looking at the top left of your screen it will show you what mode it is in. if it is in deg. mode sorry idk...

Input the number first.
Press the trig function next.
That's it.
For example:
Press '3' and '0'.
Press 'SIN'
The display shows the answer: 0.500

From the description it's not a mode problem, it's a PBCAK - Problem Between Chair and Keyboard. This is a Reverse Polish Notation calculator. The correct way to get the sin of something is NOT "press sin, cos, or tan, put in a number, and press enter" it is "put in number and press sin, cos, or tan". Data first, then function. If you need to input more than one datum, use the ENTER key: "2 ENTER 2 +"

go to:
mode
select DEGREE rather than RADIAN three lines down.

To put it in Scientific mode, press MODE then use your right arrow to move your cursor one spot to SCI. Press ENTER then press CLEAR.

Most likely you do have the calculator in radians (or if you are working in radians, you have it in degrees). Press the mode button, move cruser down to "radians degrees" highlight degrees. and press "2nd quit". things sould be better!

whenever i press sin, cos, or tan, put in a number, and press enter, a wrong answer always comes up. when i do it another calculator, the correct answer comes up.
automatically rounding all of my answers how do i turn the rounding off?????????
The exact same thing happens for me. I have SATs tomorrow with a calculater that doesn`t do SIN COS or TAN right.
oh no.
I don't know the sequence of keys to punch to get angles from sines, cosines and tangents, and vice versa.
I am having the same problem as angelsmiley. Can you help?
I have the same problem! HELP ME!!!
Same problem!
How can I change the settings on my TI-83 so that I am entering degrees with solving for tan,cos,sin instead of another unit?
good So just do something in the meanwhile it downloads, showbox download Utilize your left hand if you wish to puzzle on your own nice.
