Unable to enter a formula correctly to get the right answer


I know the answer to this is 1.129 but the closest I get is 1.49965 by putting the formula in the calculator in pieces!

Many thanks.

The expression that gives you the result you were looking for is as in the screen capture.

It is to say the least a very clumsy way to write it and I am not surprised you made mistakes typing it. I would too.

At leats unclutter the expression by removing all those 1 before a parenthesis. If there is nothing explicitely written before a parenthesis it is always 1x the content of the parentheses.

That is what it looks like after removing the redundant 1x


You can still do better by computing the differences inside the varunable to enter a formula correctly to get the rig - 3704b12.jpgal parentheses. (1-0.3)=0.7
You can still arrange it further. And I leave it to you.
Having a calculator is not a sufficient reason to park the brain in idle gear.

    One final remark. The way you wrote your expression is ambiguous. A few extra parentheses would have helped. However if you use your Casio 300ES in MthIO you will be able to check if what you key in is exactly what you write on paper (provided you use the fraction bars.)

Is the calculator suppossed to have "DEG" in the bottom right hand corner? I am trying to enter the numbers for the compound interest formula and I keep getting "Syntax Error" Is it because of the...

The DEG indicator on the screen is a reminder to the user that the ANGLE unit is in degrees. You can change the angle unit to Radian or Grads. That does not have any incidence on other calculations. It only affects the computation of trigonometric functions : sine, cosine, tangent, arc cosine, arc sine and arctangent. So if you have syntax error in the calculation of the interest formula, I can assure you it has NOTHING to do with the angle unit.
I do not see the formula you are trying to use, so I cannot be sure what you are doing wrong.
  1. Possible wrong usage of the regular minus sign instead of the change sign (-) or (+/-)
  2. Missing right parenthesis
  3. A right parenthesis is inserted at the wrong place.
  4. Incorrect use of the power function
I suggest you write the correct formula on paper and enter it step by step. A step is defined by an operation: multiplication, division, power. Start with the content of parentheses and work toward the outside. The last result is always the one stored in Answer memory (Ans).

Make sure, when you entr a formula that you hit the ENTER key instead of just moving to tyour next cell. To have all numbers added or moved, use the"Special" application, or change the value. Such as -if you are working in text mode and you enter numbers, they are only numbers in text mode. They don't have a value. Correct the cells to reflect numbers. Right click, format cell - select what you want.

Need to take create a formula that takes a cell

Hi sug04
These are couple of solutions
First. Solution
  • Take away 20% means the answer is 80%
  • 20% means 0.2 of a number, 80% means 0.8 of a number
  • So If you have 200 in Cell B1
  • And you want 20% less in B2
  • Goto B1 type 200
  • Goto B2 type like this =B1*.8 and press ENTER
  • Now Cell B2 displays 160 which is the correct answer
Second Solution
  • Goto B1 type 200
  • Goto B2 type like this =B1-(B1*.2) and press ENTER
  • Now Cell B2 displays 160 which is the correct answer

Good luck, have a nice day
