### Arithmetic Puzzle: Broken Calculator

**Source:**Quantnet Forum

**Problem:**

There is a calculator in which all digits(0-9) and the basic arithmetic operators(+,-,*,/) are disabled. However other scientific functions are operational like exp, log, sin, cos, arctan, etc. The calculator currently displays a 0. Convert this first to 2 and then to 3.
