    TI-86: Inputing Vectors in Polar form

    I need to input and store vectors in polar form (with a magnitude and angle). I know how to input vectors in rectangular form and convert to polar form, but for some reason, I can't seem to figure out how to put them in in polar form. Any help? Thanks.

    The only possibility I know is:

    Mode - Graph - choose Polar

    Now you are able to put in vectors in polar form at the y= - editor.

    ^Thanks for your help. It was really much easier than I made it out to be, though. I didn't realize this, but you can actually input vectors such as [2
