With **modes** you can give AlgebraKiT more information about the problem.

##### Examples

AlgebraKiT will interpret \sin{30} by default as the sine of 30 *radians*. To use degrees, you can set mode **gonio_degrees**.

To force AlgebraKiT (and the student) to write the fraction \frac{10}{8} into the mixed fraction 1¼, set mode **nf_rational**.

AlgebraKiT will solve the equation x^2+5x+6=0 by default by factoring. To force use of the Quadratic Formula (‘abc-formula’), set mode **solve_quadratic_abc**.

You can find the list of modes and a short summary about their behavior in the Reference Guide in the Help Center (choose menu **Help Center + > Reference Guide > Modes** or click here).

In the near future this list will be available on this page.
