# How to get 3/√10?

#1
I got the 0.94868... through my calculator but if I needed to get 3/√10, then how can I get that instead? It's not showing on my calculator when I press S<=>D

You would need to use some trigonometric identities but don't bother for this question. When it's necessary, it's generally much more straightforward than this one.

You don't need to get 3/sqrt(10)
If it's not showing up on your calculator then your calculator just doesn't display it like that.

I know I don't need to but I'm just curious

Either use trigonometrical identities, as I suggested earlier or use the angle bisector theorem. (Not in the A-level syllabus).
