(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); (SOLVED) Calculator Entry ErrorAngles of Reflection of Light

A ray of light strikes a flat 2.00 cm thick block of fused quartz (n = 1.458) at an angle of θ = 27.0° with the normal (Fig. P22.18). Trace the light beam through the fused quartz and find the angles of incidence and refraction at each surface.

Snell's Law=n1sintheta1=n2sintheta2

Since the ray of light began in air, I used 1*sin(27)=1.458*sin(x) and solved but my TI-89 gave me 360*@n6+.449605 which makes no sense to me. Could I get some guidance please?

I have to find the angles as it enters and leaves the quartz
