Polar coordinates are entered using R∠Angle, where ∠ is Shift-x (multiply). | Polar coordinates are entered using R∠Angle, where ∠ is Shift-x (multiply). | ||

Rectangular coordinates are entered using complex values as in a+b*i (where i is Shift-2). Also useful is the π symbol (shift-3). | Rectangular coordinates are entered using complex values as in a+b*i (where i is Shift-2). Also useful is the π symbol (shift-3). | ||

+ | You can convert angles between radians and degrees by using the Shift-Units menus. From the tools menu, the CONVERT function does the conversion. Then you can select (rad) or (deg) from the Units-Angle menu. So, use CONVERT(1.5_(rad),1_(deg)) to convert 1.5 radians to degrees. You do have to enter the 1 in 1_(deg). Note that other angle formats are also available in Units-Angle. | ||

To enter a point this way in the geometry app, you cannot enter point(1∠30_deg), but you can enter 1∠30 on the home view and hit enter to convert to radians. Then, in the geometry app, you can enter point() and select menu-copy_from_home and select the radian version to put it in the point call. You can alternatively enter point(EXPR("1∠30_deg")). | To enter a point this way in the geometry app, you cannot enter point(1∠30_deg), but you can enter 1∠30 on the home view and hit enter to convert to radians.
