Would you set your calculator in radians or degrees and why ?

Thank you very much!

I think it depends what the real part of the equation is given in. You could always try the root mean square on |z|

Surely it will depend on whether the answer has to be given in radians or degrees.

4. To work with geometry I would use degrees.
To work with functions I would use radians.
