#### Transcript Calculator Programs for the ACT

Calculator Programs for the ACT and how to use them Programs you will want: Cat Cube Cylla Dist F2k Line Log Math Midpoint Polyinfo Pyramid Pythagor Quadratic Radsimp Slope Slvsystm Trig yintslop Formula Programs: Cube, Cylla, Pyramid, Trig These programs do not actually do anything, they are used as references. Access them by going to “edit” for that program. Be sure to use “quit” to go back to your home screen, “clear” will erase lines of the program. Programs with their own Menus: F2k, Math These have several functions within a single program. You must choose from the menu which functions you wish to perform, then you must follow the directions correctly for each function F2k Menu 1: Area Quadratic Sysofequations endpoint distance slope area: Surface area Pythagorean Pythag2 Circle trapezoid parallelogram triangle regpolygon sysofequations: 2 variables 3 variables F2k Menu 2: Bfactor Factor Triangle Volume Radicalreducer English-Metric volume: cone cube cylinder pyramid rect. prism sphere trpzd prism tringlr prism english-metric inches to cm cm. to inches oF to oC oC to oF F2k Menu 3: asymptote boxnwisk piecewise ieangle sequence eqofacircle piecewise: 2 equations 3 equations 4 equations sequence: arithmetic (1. supersum 2. number of terms 3. sum of finite 4. infinite limit 5. A x B) geometric (1. sum of finite 2. sum of infinite 3. infinite limit 4. A x B) sigma Math: Area (list of formulas) Volume (list of formulas) Loan (calculates pmts & interest) Distance (calculates and gives formula) Midpoint (calculates and gives formula) Sales Tax (calculates tax and total price) triangle all tri (find area: 1. by length 2. by SAS) right tri (find length of: 1. hypotenuse 2. a leg) special tri (1. 30-60-90 2. 45-45-90) Dist finds the distance between two points gives the formula used tells the square root taken to find the distance in case the answer is needed in radical form Line gives the formula for point-slope form the user inputs a point and the slope the program writes an equation in slopeintercept form Log user inputs the “of” number (fatty) and the base program gives the answer Midpoint user gives two coordinates program gives the midpoint on two lines (x, y) Pythagor which side is missing program calculates the missing side when the other two are given Quadratic user inputs A, B and C the solution is given Radsimp simplifies roots other than square index is the root, radicand is the number under the radical Slope asks for two points gives the slope in the form rise/run Slvsystm ax + by = c dx + ey = f asks for a, b, c, d, e, f solves for x and y Yintslop asks for two points gives the slope and y-intercept
