Ok there is not a problem. the "E" is the calculators way of scientific notation. So if u were to see 1.70 e3 it would really mean 1.70 x 10^3 which is 1700. If these are small numbers and you are getting these "e" ur calculator is in scientific notation mode. Press "mode" then at the top highlight the word "normal" and hit enter. You will be back in normal calculator mode.

I'm using a Ti-84 plus and when I try simple division it gives incorrect answers. For example, when I enter 5/2 it answers 3. When I entered 50/100 it answers 1.


You apparently have your calculator set to display no digits to the right of the decimal point. 5/2 is 2.5, which rounds to 3, and 50/100 is 0.5, which rounds to 1.

To change the display setting, press MODE, highlight the desired settings on the first two lines, then press ENTER followed by 2ND QUIT. Try setting "NORMAL" and "FLOAT" and see what results you get now.

Not sure what the problem is; sometimes it will give me right answers, sometimes not. Don&#39;t want to turn off rounding as I&#39;m afraid that may ruin my answers, and already have it in the...


When calculating trigonometric functions you should pay attention to the angle unit used. The TI84 PLUS/SE can use two units: the radian and the degree, As to rounding I do not see why it would ruin your answers which are approximate anyway. Just choose float whithout specifying the number of decimal digits, then when a result is displayed round it yourself to the desired accuracy.

To set the angle unit press MODE, then use down arrow to move highlight to the line RADIAN DEGREE and select the one you want.

How to turn on diagnostic on casio fx cg 10


You got yourself a prizm, learn to use it and forget about the TI84 Plus. The DiagnosticsON is a command of the TI8 84 plus. You can activate it for statistics or deactivate it. For the Casios, the determination coefficient or the correlation factors are always displayed. If the regression model you are using has a correlation coefficient it will be displayed on the same screen the statistical values are displayed.
Please read your manual, it will help you a lot.

Ti-nspire with 84 keypad problems


It seems to me that you get the loading bar when you switch keypads. I just switched keypads, and when I reinserted the TI84 Plus keypad back again I found my last TI84 Plus screen contents still displayed.
As to the RAM cleared message, it probably is related to the batteries being depleted.
To verify battery charge level, you may use TI connect.

My TI-30XIIS calculator displays an arrow,an DEG, and a K always on my screen whenever i try to do simple multiplication. it says Syntax error and will not compute an answer.............


I had this problem also and just fixed it. I hit 2nd key...don't hold it, (it should say 2nd in the lower left corner across from the DEG) then click the K button (also the divide key). The arrow and DEG will remain, but do not affect simple math calculations. Hope this helps!

Getting Decimal Answers by Disabling WriteViewelw516.gif on the Sharp EL-W516 Calculator

The Sharp EL-W516's WriteView display uses multiple lines to display mathematics as it is seen on a page. Fractions are shown as fractions, exponents as exponents, integrals as integrals, and so on. This makes entering calculations easier, and reduces the chance of errors.

At the same time, calculation results are displayed as fractions (or with roots or pi) whenever possible. Pressing the CHANGE button repeatedly will change these to decimal answers.
If you prefer to always get decimal results you need to disable the WriteView display mode. Doing this will make the calculator display like the Sharp EL-546W when in NORMAL mode. Answers will be given as decimals, but fractions will no longer look like fractions. In general, you will still need to follow the EL-W516 instructions.
Disabling WriteView

Press 2ndF and MATH to enter SET UP. Now press 2 for EDITOR.

There are now two options: 0: W-VIEW, and 1: LINE

Press 1 for Linear display mode to disable the WriteView display, and to get decimals as your answers.

To return to the WriteView display, go through the steps above but press 0 for W-VIEW.

NOTE: It is not possible to have decimals as the default answer form when in WriteView mode.

Make sure you have the proper angular mode set. The TI-84 can work with degrees or radians.

Press MODE to bring up the mode screen. Use the arrow keys to highlight either "Radian" or "Degree" on the third line and press ENTER. Press 2ND [QUIT] to exit the mode screen.

If this doesn't do it, please reply to this post giving an example of a calculation and the answer you're getting from the calculator.

When I type a problem into the TI84 it will give me the answer with an Error. Example, I type in 2+2 and get 4E0. This happens with everything I enter into the calculator. How to I fix this?


Sorry, but it takes sometime to be well familiar with the calculator. The E in the result is a short-hand notation for times 10 to a power. What you got is 4x10^(0) which is just 4.
Your calculator is doing that because it is configured to display result in SCIENTIFIC format.
To revert to the format you may be more accustomed to,
  1. Press the [MODE] key
  2. The first line of the displayed screen will show NORMAL SCI ENG and the cursor blinking on SCI or ENG.
  3. Use the left arrow to highlight NORMAL and press ENTER.
  4. Press [2nd][MODE] to (QUIT) and go to main calculator screen.
