Calculator Tangent
Does someone know how to use the test's calculator?
I'm trying to solve this equation from the practice test and in the calculator is a different answer. It's showing a negative number instead of a positive but it's close to 20.

I think you’re in luck: NCARB no longer requires trigonometry in any calculations. See here:
(I can confirm that I didn’t need trig for any of the exams when I took them last month).

In the Calculator I found you need to input 24, then select TAN. That will give you the equivalent of Tan(24). (So in the calculator 24TAN= TAN(24)) Doing that gives you .44522.
Then I did 9/.44522 to get 20.21, and round to 20. I tried this out on a few different Calculators to check the math. It's an interesting process. But good to red above that the skill might not be needed.
