    However, for those of you who require more advanced calculator functions, you can simply take your Samsung Galaxy S5, and you can turn it on its side
    .
    Once you've turned it on its side, you'll note that I now have cosign functions, and much higher level math functions that most people don't know how to use. However, since you are looking for a scientific calculator, you will probably know how they function. In order to use these functions, simply enter numbers as you normally would, and then you can proceed through performing more advanced mathematical functions.

    And you still have your more advanced functions; in the event that you are wanting to perform just briefly more advanced calculations, then you can just switch back to the main calculator
    .
    The main screen is particularly useful if you have poor eyesight and you need something larger. As always, you can use the back button, and simply delete what you put in if you are not happy with it.

Where is the 2nd button on a Galaxy core prime calculator?

I have a Samsung Galaxy core prime phone, and I am trying to do inverse sine, cosine, and tagine. However, I have no clue what to do. None of the topics discussed answered my question. I just want to know how to find inverse sin cosine and tangent. I have tried: I mean I pressed some buttons but none of them are for inverses. My teacher said some phones have a 2nd button that you press and it will inverse but I don't think I have a second button. I think it was caused by: There's nothing wrong with the calculator. I just don't know what to do. All the keys work fine. I wish I had a 2nd button.
