My calculator (fx-991EX) gives me a decimal number and not the surd form when I write in qualities like cos(30) and it’s in degrees. My maths teachers haven’t been able to figure it out. Any help?

You should check that the input/output option (Shift Menu 1) is set to Math I / Math O (option 1 on the list).

I’ve tried that, it doesn’t work unfortunately. It should come up with the surd first

Hi, I had the same issue with mine! Turns out the calculator was counterfeit so I’d suggest returning and getting a new one!

Casio has their own authentication test that you can find online to determine whether this is the case. There are loads of fake calculators around on the market 🙄

Thank you, just found out it’s a fake! However I bought it on amazon for around £30 in September..

Oh damn, I got mine off eBay! And then bought one off Amazon which worked fine. Must have been a dodgy seller, hope you get a refund!
