So THAT'S what the button is for. I never quite knew what it was for.

good luck using that in uni unless ur going to be an engineer. Guessing you'll be going to art school or something dull like that.

On those calculators, you press the S to D function button. I use that one since it's the cheapest one in most stores in the UK.

Get yourself the Casio fx-991ES that calculator is a beast, and it is allowed in all maths-based exams. It will gain you at least a grade across all your exams, and it isn't expensive really (I picked mine up for £15).
User avatar #120 to #93 - sciencexplain (05/19/2014) [-]
What about it is different? It looks just like the one I used and currently use. Different functions and features?
#121 to #120 - catephant (05/19/2014) [-]
The fx-991ES PLUS (I missed the PLUS out in my last comment, and it does make a bit of a difference I guess) has several features not found on the fx-83ES and fx-85GT calculators. They allow for numerical integration, differentiation, summation can solve quite a few forms of equation (quadratics, cubics etc.). It also has the option to calculate in several base-n number systems (namely binary, hexadecimal, decimal (no **** ) and octal. It also has complex number, vector and matrix modes in addition to the standard stat mode. It also has most of (nearly all) the fundamental consants and 40 unit conversions which are damned useful (especially if you study physics, like me!).
User avatar #122 to #121 - sciencexplain (05/19/2014) [-]
Huh. I guess it would have been beneficial, but I've done my exams and am doing Forensic lab work now.
#123 to #122 - catephant (05/19/2014) [-]
Nice, and yeah, in my Further Pure exams it has saved my life more than once by allowing me to get the definite answer - while it doesn't give the method, it at least means the answer is a known value in nearly all cases.
User avatar #124 to #123 - sciencexplain (05/19/2014) [-]
If marks are awarded for method, you still get marks for the answer, which is ALWAYS important. If I could, I would take two calculators in. One for the graphs and complexities, and the other for more basic calculations and in case the battery runs out and they give you one that can't do the work that the upper class calculators do.
#125 to #124 - catephant (05/19/2014) [-]
Yeah, unfortunately the exam boards have realised that even if students don't know what they're doing, they can get the right answer via their calculator, and it's meant that (at least, it seems to be the case) they are looking more often for exact answers than numerical ones now (the 991ES PLUS can't provide exact answers for things like integrations, so you can only use it for checking).

As for graphs and the like, I haven't needed to mess about with calculators that fancy yet, and the closest I have gotten was a friend's calculator which you could program games on, which was kinda insane, but also definitely banned in the exams I have yet to sit.
User avatar #126 to #125 - sciencexplain (05/19/2014) [-]
I know it's possible to modify and reprogram calculators to play games, but if they know you've got it, instant 0. It's cool, but the most it can do is pokémon. (Which I'm more than happy with.)
#127 to #126 - catephant (05/19/2014) [-]
Haha, while they may only be capable of games as complex as Pokemon, think about what calculators used to be capable of and it suddenly seems insane how powerful even calculators have become, price vs (absolute) performance of computers is reaching a point where they're just everywhere. One day we'll even be able to speak to our calculators!
User avatar #128 to #127 - sciencexplain (05/19/2014) [-]
I speak to my calculator. It's called Android Voice Recognition. ( **** Apple. I don't support them. Android master race.) It utilizes scientific calculator apps that are linked in, but it's certainly going to become the future. However, voice recognition would never be allowed, because nobody can talk in exams.
#129 to #128 - catephant (05/19/2014) [-]
By the time it's in, I wouldn't have to worry about that! Unless it is working solidly in the next 4 years, I shouldn't have to sit another exam again (I really hope). What app do you use? I have a Nexus 5 so I should be down with that sorta thing, but when looking on the app store, the most powerful scientific calculators supported seemed oddly none-functional compared to actual calculators.
User avatar #130 to #129 - sciencexplain (05/19/2014) [-]
It's a homebrew program that a friend put on my phone. I don't know how he does it, but it's pretty shaky atm and is hard to operate at times because there are holes in the coding. If he releases it onto the app store, I'll tell you which one it is.
#131 to #130 - catephant (05/19/2014) [-]
That would be awesome!

Hey bitch, I have that calculator, and it's ability to display numbers as fractions is a ******* god send. Press the S<=>D button, and try not to **** your pants when you get a question that asks for an exact answer.

You can change that to get a decimal answer in the "SETUP" menu...

That happened to me before and I didn't know how to switch it. I don't think most people don't know math knows how to switch it on a calculator.

it let you know that 3900 and 473 are mutually prime.
still useful, I'll say.
#21 to #2 - Rascal (05/18/2014) [-]
3900 is not prime. Its even, so divisible by 2. Also, it ends in 0, so its divisible by multiples of ten. Also, divisible by 5. also 3, and 6. Just to name a few.
#24 to #21 - ClicheUsername (05/18/2014) [-]
Mutually prime...as in they dont share any common factors.

User avatar #43 - datargumme (05/18/2014) [-]
The reason it shows the fraction as an answer, is because that is the most precise answer you can get since the result in irrational, if you have it read up the decimal answer, it will never be completely correct, unless your calculator can show and calculate an infinite ammount of digits.
#50 to #43 - Rascal (05/18/2014) [-]
Yes, the answer is irrational. This is why the calculator is displaying it as the ratio of two numbers. This makes perfect sense.
