    Hi there,

    So I've been doing a few practice C2 papers, and one of the questions asked me to give my answers in exact form. Normally my calculator can do this when I press the S<->D button, however sometimes it won't convert and I need to go into the mark scheme, find it and divide the actual value to the "exact form" to see if I get 1.

    Is there a way to force the calculator to give me the value in surd format?

    Nope, do it using your head, pencil and paper.

    It was just some definite integral one, I got the right answer but just not in the exact form.
