HP Prime and TI-84 Plus CE: Drawing Angles

HP Prime and TI-84 Plus CE:  Drawing Angles

Introduction

The program DRAWANG draws an angle.  You give the starting line from coordinates (0,0) to (A,B).  The origin is given automatically.  The calculator will then a draw a line that results from the given angle θ from the origin to a calculated point. 

The calculator will work in the angle mode your calculator mode is currently set.

For clockwise angles, enter θ as negative.

For counterclockwise angles, enter θ as positive.

HP Prime Program DRAWANG

EXPORT DRAWANG()
BEGIN
// 2019-04-04 EWS
STARTAPP(“Function”);
Xmin:=−11; Xmax:=11;
Ymin:=−11; Ymax:=11;
LOCAL A,B,C,D,R,θ,Z;
INPUT({A,B,θ},”Begin Point (A,B)
; Angle θ”,{“A:”,”B:”,”θ:”},
{“−10≤A≤10″,”−10≤B≤10″,”Angle”});
R:=√(A^2+B^2);
Z:=θ+ARG(A+B*i);
C:=R*COS(Z); D:=R*SIN(Z);
RECT();
// Axes
LINE(−11,0,11,0,#D0D0D0h);
LINE(0,−11,0,11,#D0D0D0h);

// Angle
LINE(0,0,A,B,#FF0000h);
LINE(0,0,C,D,#0000FFh);
TEXTOUT(“Angle: “+STRING(θ),
−11,11,3,#006000h);
WAIT(0);
END;

(Alternatively, with HComplex set to 1  (allow complex numbers from real input, and display them as a+bi):

EXPORT DRAWANG()
BEGIN
// 2019-04-04 EWS
HComplex:=1;
STARTAPP(“Function”);
Xmin:=−11; Xmax:=11;
Ymin:=−11; Ymax:=11;
LOCAL A,B,C,D,R,θ,Z;
INPUT({A,B,θ},”Begin Point (A,B)
; Angle θ”,{“A:”,”B:”,”θ:”},
{“−10≤A≤10″,”−10≤B≤10″,”Angle”});
R:=√(A^2+B^2);
Z:=θ+ARG(A+B*√(-1));
C:=R*COS(Z); D:=R*SIN(Z);
RECT();
// Axes
LINE(−11,0,11,0,#D0D0D0h);
LINE(0,−11,0,11,#D0D0D0h);

// Angle
LINE(0,0,A,B,#FF0000h);
LINE(0,0,C,D,#0000FFh);
TEXTOUT(“Angle: “+STRING(θ),
−11,11,3,#006000h);
WAIT(0);
END;

The latter program can be copied straight from the blog as text.  The former will be needed to type in manually.
