The Casio fxMS is an affordable scientific calculator with many powerful features. Some of these can greatly reduce the effort to solve problems, while others can be abused in interesting and fun ways.
Being able to use these features can also be helpful on tests and exams where scientific calculators are allowed but more powerful graphing calculators are not. On this page, I will show you some advanced and clever tricks that you can do with the calculator. Although the article is for the Casio fxMS calculator and all the tricks mentioned here are guaranteed to work on itthe calculator features and underlying mathematical principles for the tricks are quite general and can be applied to many other calculators as well.
This article assumes that you know the basics of how to use the calculator. If not, please read the user manuals and review how to use the features on the calculator. The official Casio manuals are available in PDF format here:. These tricks are just built-in features of the calculator that are not entirely obvious, because the previous generation of scientific calculators did not have these features.
To solve a quadratic or cubic polynomial equation:. To solve a system of linear equations in 2 or 3 variables:. Enter the number of variables, which is also the number of equations 2 or 3.
Polynomials equations and linear systems are frequently occurring problems in mathematics and sciences, which makes this calculator feature one of the most useful ones. Trjcks an initial guess for the variable and press the equals button.

Try to give a value near an actual solution, or else solving will be slow or will fail. However if the equation is linear, then any initial trickd works. The algorithm can easily hang, fail, or give a wrong answer, so beware — it is not an automatic solver for all equations. Although linear equations are simple to solve in theory, letting trocks calculator solve it for you can still save you some algebraic manipulation.
The 3 angles in a triangle are ABand C. B is twice of A. C is triple of B. Find the value of B. For example, this makes it much easier to use the rational root theorem to factor or solve polynomials. It takes on a random value for each instance in a formula and for each evaluation of a formula.
This can be useful answering multiple-choice questions, e. Go left or right? We inherited the sexagesimal base number system from the Babylonians.
While it makes some division problems easier for mental arithmetic, generally speaking decimal fractions are far easier to work with in practice. But for those times when you do need to work in sexagesimal or convert between it and decimal, this calculator comes to the rescue.
It supports number input in degree-minute-second format, and can convert to and from decimal format. Obviously, this feature is useful for doing calculations with angles expressed in DMS notation. These subdivisions are the same as the DMS scheme.
To illustrate how DMS features can be used to solve time-related problems, I present some example exercises:. This means 8 hours, 42 minutes, and 15 seconds. You start driving at At what time will you reach your destination? If the amount of partitioning is nthen the number of partitions is tridks n.
To exit the test at any time, press ON. Pressing ticks is not necessary on some older versions of this calculator. The first phase is the display test. The last display test shows To complete the test, press every key except ON in order from left to right, top to bottom.

The number on the screen increments every time you correctly hit the next key in the sequence. A major difference between this calculator and older scientific casoi is that this calculator does not evaluate the expression while you input it. The most recent expression evaluated can be re-evaluated simply by pressing the equals key. The result of each evaluation is always saved in the answer variable Ans. For single-statement iterations, it is most convenient to use Ans as the iterated variable.
When evaluating, press the equals key once per statement, and the calculator evaluates them in sequence. When all the statements in the line have been evaluated, pressing the equals key will go back to evaluating the first statement. After a number of iterations, the result should converge to 1.
Iterating cos Ansthe answer converges to 0. This is based on the original Euclidean algorithmwhich uses repeated subtraction rather than the modulus remainder operation. Set the mode to complex numbers MODE 2. This is needed in order to use the absolute value function. This is due to the finite precision and rounding. The calculator contains a palette of symbols, which can be used to spell out words and phrases in l33tsp34k. The complete Latin alphabet cannot be spelled out, but this can make trickss exercise more fun.
The letters that cannot be represented are J, Q, V, W. Discovering the punctuation that can be entered is left as an exercise for the cassio. In the SD mode, you can store a sequence of up to 80 numbers, which persist even after a power cycle. In theory, any information can be stored as numbers. Modern digital computers are built completely on this fact.
For example, if you want to store text on the calculator, just devise a coding scheme that maps between letters and numbers. Xasio that with the precision available, each number on this calculator can hold up to about It would be nice if the Casio fxMS had these features. Gamma function real-valued factorialother special functions. Fully implemented complex number functions e. Casio fxMS tips and tricks l33tsp34k. Overview of Project Nayuki software licenses.
