    1. I have two calculators. including the Texas inspire cx. I can't make either of them work reliably on trig questions. I have an exam sunday and i need to be sure how to use my inspire.



    2. Summation: [50][0.5] + [50][0.07cos35] + [100][0.1cos35] = 13.55



    3. Now i got this formula off my uni text book. However, i consistently get the wrong answer. The internet and the book that came with my inspire are useless.

    Anyone with an inspire or casio fx82au.. please help

    If you are using degrees in your trig formulas, make sure the calculator is set to degrees rather than radians.
