What does the ' mean by the numbers and can these be solved by a calculator?
It tells me to use a calculator to evaluate the value of the following trig functions but I don't know how to put the ' in a calculator.
7. sec 54° 23’
8. cos 36° 10’
9. cot 35° 21’ 45’’
You could probably simplify that stuff... I don't know. Googling it may help.
sec 54° 23’
Most calculators have a way of putting in minutes and seconds.
BUT you have to change it to 1 / 54° 23’
The web 2 calc has the 'sec' function (trig) so you don't need to worry about that but it has no seconds(angle) function.
So you have to put it in like this
sec(54+23/60) = -1.7853120273505811
What kind of calc are you using?
