Question about Casio FX991MS Scientific Calculator
The following was written for the Casio FX-991 ES. If matrix calculations are available on your calculator you will perform them as described below. ( I have no time to verify that the FX-991ms can perform matrix calculations).
Let me explain how to create matrices. (If you know how to do it, skip to the operations on matricies, at the end.)
First you must set Matrix calculation
[MODE][6:Matrix]. Then By entering one of the numbers [1:MatA] or [2:Matb] or [3:MatC] you get to choose the dimensions of the matrix
(mxn]. Once finished entering the matrix you clear the screen.
The operations on matrices are available by pressing [Shift][Matrix]
[1:Dim] to change the dimension of a matrix (in fact redefining the matrix)
[2:Data] enter values in a matrix
[3:MatA] access Matrix A
[4:Matb] access Matrix B
[5:MatC] access matrix C
[6:MatAns] access the Answer Matrix (the last matrix calculated)
[7:det] Calculate the determinant of a matrix already defined
[8:Trn] The transpose of a matrix already defined
To add matrices MatA+MatB
To subtract MatA-MatB
To multiply MatAxMatB
To raise a matrixe to a power 2 [x2], cube [x3]
To obtain inverse of MatA already defined MatA[x-1] [x-1] is the x to the power -1 key
Dimensions of matrices involved in operations must match.
Here is a short summary
The multiplication of structured mathematical entities (vectors, complex numbers, matrices, etc.) is different from the multiplication of unstructured (scalar) mathematical entities (regular umbers). As you well know matrix multiplication is not commutative> This has to do with the dimensions.
An mXn matrix has m rows and n columns. To perform multiplication of an kXl matrice by an mXn matrix you multiply each element in one row of the first matrix by a specific element in a column of the second matrix. This imposes a condition, namely that the number of columns of the first matrix be equal to the number of rows of the second.
Thus, to be able to multiply a kXl matrix by am mXn matrix, the number of columns of the first (l) must be equal to the number of rows of the second (m).
So MatA(kXl) * MatB(mXn) is possible only if l=m
MatA(kX3) * Mat(3Xn) is possible and meaningful, but
Mat(kX3) * Mat(nX3) may not be possible.
To get back to your calculation, make sure that the number of columns of the first matrix is equal to the number of rows of the second. If this condition is not satisfied, the calculator returns a dimension error. The order of the matrices in the multiplication is, shall we say, vital.

Here is the solution for th FX-991ES.
The error may be due to the key you used to signifie inverse. It says in the manual that you should use the key x^-1 not the one used to input general powers.
Here is screen capture from the Appendix to the manual. The picture shows the sequence of keys to press to obtain the inverse of a 2x2 matrix. It is taken from page 41 of Appendix
The matrix used in the exemple is
a_11=2 a_12=1 a_21=1 a_22=2
Here is the link to download the manual and the appendix
The link is for FX991ES. Look there foe you manual.
Hope it helps

SOURCE: m mod n in Casio fx991MS
there is one button ab/c beneath CALC... if u want to calculate 7 mod 4 then... u should press 7 then ab/c 4 and equal to
1, 3 ,4 which is 4*1=4 and 7-4=3 remainder...

I am only looking for a plausible cause of the error, because I do not believe your calculator can make such a mistake. I think you accidentally activated the Exponential display format and did not pay attention to the small, raised -03 that came at the end of the number displayed. It is a common mistake for those not very familiar with Scientific or exponential notation.
Let us try to reset your calculator to the normal (floating point) format.
Press the [MODE] key a number of times until you reach a screen that has FIX, SCI, NORM and under each one a number (FIX 1, SCI 2), Norm 3). To have the number of decimal place you gave in your result (4 decimal digits), you press 1 to select Fix then 4.
Be aware that scientific calculators usually stop displaying results in floating point format ( 0.0000045 ) if the number is smaller then 0.001. So basically, 0.00099 will be displayed as 9.90-04, -04 being raised above the level, and in smaller size.
Hope it helps.

Testimonial: "Thanks so much, its working now:) I thought I was going to have to buy a new calculator!"
If you want to get an answer like 1/2X for d/dx(X^2), you will have to
purchase a CAS calculator like Casio's Algebra FX-2 or Classpad. TI series calculators also have CAS.
However, you can calculate the numerical values of derivatives and integrals only.
To calculate the value of a proper integral:
To calculate derivative at a point:
SHIFT+∫dx key X^2,3)
Display looks like this: d/dx(X^2,3).
