Question about SoftMath Algebrator - Algebra Homework Solver (689076614429)

I don't know how to enter the exponents that are low not high

Ad

Hi Loringh,

see, high exponents are +ve powers, while low exponents are -ve powers.

e.g. for 1200000=1.2X10^6=1.2E+6 (high exponents)

for 0.0000000012=1.2X10^-9=1.2E-9 (low exponents)

I think so easy ?

Thanks

I don't have this calculator, but let's give this a shot and see if it gives us the correct answer.

Let's try 10 to the exponent -2. The rule for negative exponents is to put 1 on the top and the term with a positive exponent on the bottom. In this case, it would be 1 on the top and 10 to the exponent 2 on the bottom, or 1 / 100 or 0.01.

In the calculator, enter 10, hit the x to the power of y key, left bracket (, the negative key (-), 2, the right bracket ), and finally the = key. You might not have to enter the left and right brackets, but I like to enter them to understand what I enter in brackets is the exponent.

Let me know if it works and if you have any other questions.

Good luck.

The key you are looking for looks like y raised to the exponent x. It is below the "hyp" key. To determine an exponent, enter you base, hit the y to the x key and enter the exponent.

For example, 3 to the power of 4, enter 3, hit the y to the x key, and enter 4 and hit the = key.

Good luck.

Exponents of 10 are entered by pressing [2nd][X^-1] (EE).

For powers of any base, enter the base, press the [^] (below PI) then enter exponent. Use the (-) white key if exponent is negative.

To enter exponents (1, 2, 3, -3..) use the general power key marked with Y^x or X^y or ^. Enter the base press the general power key then the exponent. If exponent is negative try enclosing it in parentheses. use the change sign key (-) to enter the negative sign before the exponent.

To enter power of 10, you can use the shortcut key marked Exp (the 10 must not appear when the Exp is used to enter exponents for power of 10).

Look for a key that is marked EE, or Exp, or x10^x. To enter a number in
scientific notation, you enter the decimal part, then press the Enter
Exponent key, followed by the exponent. If exponent is negative, you
precede it with a press of the change sign key (-).

Once a number is entered there is no special treatment: multiply it divide, or add it.

For negative numbers (not just exponents), make sure you use the (-) key just to the right of the decimal point key, not the - key for subtraction.

For what follows I'm going to assume you have at least version 2.53 of the operating system for the 84Plus. If you have an older version, I STRONGLY recommend you update it:

http://education.ti.com/educationportal/sites/US/productDetail/us_os_84plus.html

You can use the "n/d" command in the MATH/NUM menu to enter the division bar. For example, to enter 1/2, press 1 MATH right-arrow ALPHA [D] 2 ENTER. If you just want the number, you can also enter it as 1 / 2.

You can convert a decimal number to a fraction using the >Frac command in the MATH menu. For example, to convert 0.2 to a fraction, press . 2 MATH 1 ENTER.

Use the EE (enter exponent) key (2nd-shift of the key just above the 7) to enter the exponent. Use the (-) key just to the right of the decimal point to enter a negative number.

The - key subtracts one number from another. The (-) key enters a negative number.

There's a key marked "EE" (for Enter Exponent) just above the "7" key. This key is used to enter decimal exponents. To enter 1x10^23, press 1 EE 2 3

For exponents to other bases, use the y^x key just above the divide key.

Press [2nd][,] to activate (EE) which appears on screen as a lower case E, enter the change sign (-) right of the [dot] on the bottom row of keys, enter the value of the exponent.

Ex: Enter Avogadro's number of Generalk Chemistry fame

6.02[SHIFT][,] (EE) (-)23

Here is screen capture of what it will look like.

Key sequence is:

2.5

X

8

2nd

10 to the power x

/

2.25

X

5

2nd

10 to the power x

=

Unless you mean (2.5x10 (exponent 8))/(2.25 x10 (exponent5)), in which case you need to change the last "X" in the sequence to "/", or stick the appropriate brackets into the sequence.

Note that exponents are like trig functions, enter value first, then the operator, so 10 (exponent 8) is entered as "8", "2nd", "10 to power x", just like sin 60 is entered "60", "SIN"
