50g vector or complex arguments in exact form? Message #1 Posted by Hal Bitton in Boise on 29 Jan 2008, 7:06 p.m.
Hi everybody.
I hope the new year is treating you all well.
On my 50G, is there any way to enter vector or complex arguments in exact form? With the calculator in exact mode, whenever I try to put an irrational value (in exact form) into a complex number or vector, I get a "bad argument type" error. When working with polar coordinates (or vectors) in radian mode, it would seem completely logical to enter the angle in terms of pi, but alas, I can't do it. It seems I must first evaluate any irrationals to thier decimal approximations before using them.
The ability to accept arguments in exact form would seem to be a logical extension of the "exact mode" functionality of the 49g/50g series.
Am I missing a setting, or is there a tecnique that would let me do this?
Thanks and best regards, Hal
