I'm a TI-8x neophyte and I may never need to know anything more about the machine than this.

Is there is a way to convert a complex number in polar form having an angle in degrees, to rectangular form, that is is easy to do as the inverse operation is?

So far the simplest (!) approach I've found is to enter the complex number in exponential form with an inline conversion from degrees to radian measure in the imaginary exponent. Even speaking that sentence to the student I'm trying to assist is going to blow his head off.
