Question about Texas Instruments TI-30XA Calculator

1 Answer

Basic Q's I've read the user manual and the tips and tricks paper that came with the calculator but I still can't seem to understand how to do these 2 things. 1. display things like 9 to the 16th power or 3 to the 12th power I can only do like 10 to the 9th power, 10 to the 7th power, etc... 2. store and recall a constant is it possible to store a value and then instead of having to continually retype in the value just press something to bring the value up again (for adding long strings of numbers...) Thanks!

The LOG and LN keys do what you have done.

To get 9 to the 16th power, enter 9, "y to the power x" (under the OFF key) then 16, then =

3 to the 12th power is the same, enter 3, y to the power x, 12, =, result 531,441

The inverse key sequence: value 1, 2nd, y to the power x, value 2, returns the xth root of y, e.g. 531,441, 2nd, y to the power x, 12, =, gives you 3 back

How do you load paper into the printing calculator?

Cut paper at a 45 degree angle and load into back slot with angle (apex) of paper to the right of machine when facing it. Be sure to push it thru when loading. You should see tip next to calculator number wheel. Hit the additon sign several times to advance. You may need tweezers to pull paper thru if it doesn't advance by itself.

Load new reel of paper

Assuming that you know where the paper gets feed in, I usually use this trick to start a new roll of paper.
First, tear off the end of the new roll so that there isn't any glue stuck on the paper.
Then, fold the tip of the paper like an arrow. > (Fold one side to the middle and the other side to the middle so both sides meet in the middle.
Then, place the paper into the slot where the paper feeds in.. (Usually goes under the printer assembly) and then hit the PAPER FEED button at the same time. If the paper is in the correct slot, the paper should start feeding the paper all the way through.
Hope this helps.
Have a good day.

Loading paper

Hi, I had the same problem...but I fixed it. Here's how: At the very back of the calculater under the paper roller there is a very thin horizontal slot. Insert the tip of the paper roll into the slot, then press the paper advance button located on the top left hand sidw of the calculator until you see the paper. Guide the paper through the top slot and voila.
