How to Use a TI-30XA
The TI-30XA is a scientific calculator with many functions. You can calculate problems with fractions and decimals, as well as solve problems of probability and functions. A scientific calculator computes the number sentence you type in using the order of operations: parentheses first, then roots and exponents, then division and multiplication and, finally, addition and subtraction.


  1. How to Use a TI-30XA
    • 1

      Press the [ON/C] key to turn on the calculator. Press the [OFF] key to turn it off. To use the calculator in solar mode, put the solar panel in the light and then press the [ON/C] key. To turn it off when in solar mode, slide the calculator cover back on and it will automatically shut off.

    • 2

      Replace the batteries by first removing the cover and placing it face down. Use a Phillips-head screwdriver to unscrew the back panel. Remove the back panel and change the batteries. Screw the back panel back on. Press [OFF] [ON/C] and [ON/C].

  • Use the basic operation keys for addition [+], subtraction [-], multiplication [x] and division [/]. To change the signs of your values from positive to negative or vice versa, press the [+ -] key before the numbers you enter. Use the parentheses, [(] and [)], to command the calculator to solve what is inside the parentheses first. Press the [=] to solve the number sentence you entered into the calculator.

    Find percents of a number by first typing in the number, then [x], then the percent number, [2nd], [%] and, finally, [=]. The [2nd] key allows you to use the commands that are written above each key. For example, to find 20% of 100, type in 100 [x] 20 [2nd] [%] [=] and the display will show the answer, 20.

  • 5

    Turn decimals into fractions by entering the decimal value, then pressing the [2nd] and [F D] keys, then [=]. Turn the fraction back into a decimal by pressing [2nd] and [F D] again. For example, to turn 0.5 into a fraction, type in 0.5 [2nd] [F D] [=].

  • 6

    Turn mixed numbers into improper fractions by entering the mixed number first. Type in the whole number, then the [a b/c] key, then the numerator, the [a b/c] key again and the denominator. Next, press [2nd] [d/c] [=], and the calculator will convert your mixed number into an improper fraction. Press [2nd] [d/c] again to turn it back into a mixed number. For example, to turn 1 1/2 into an improper fraction type in 1 [a b/c] 1 [a b/c] 2 [2nd] [d/c] [=], and the display will show the answer 3/2.

  • 7

    Switch the notation setting of the calculator between engineering, scientific and floating. To select scientific notation, press the [2nd] and [SCI] keys; this will display your answers in scientific notation as a number between 1 and 10 to a power of 10. Press [2nd] [ENG] to switch to the engineering setting; this setting displays values as a number with an exponent that is a multiple of 3. Press [2nd] [FLO] to switch to the floating setting. This is considered standard notation and will display the answer as a standard number.

  • 8

    Use the left arrow key to go back and delete numbers to the right of the cursor that you typed into the display. This must be done before you press [=]. To clear the screen, values and operations, press [ON/C] and [ON/C] again in battery mode, or [CE/C] and [CE/C] again in solar mode.

  • Hope it helps your problem. Thanks!

    A ship with a waterline area of 20000 square meter has vertical sides at the water line plane. In seawater with density of 1025kg/cubic meters, the draught of the ship is 3meter.I am confused,

    The weight of the ship is 20,000*3*1,025 = 61,500,000 kg; To have a 3m draught in fresh water, it would have to weigh 20,000*3*1000 = 60,000,000 kg; That means it needs to remove 1,500,000 kg (1,500 T) of cargo before sailing into fresh water.

    Where is the combination button on SHARP EL-501W calculator?

    There is no such key on this calculator. You can calculate it using factorials. To calculate nCr you can calculate n! / (r! * (n-r)!).

    How to calculate 17^23mod55 in casio scientific calculator fx-991MS?

    Using the Windows calculator in scientific view, we get:
    17^23 = 19,967,568,900,859,523,802,559,065,713
    which is 29 digits long, ie much longer than the capacity of most calculators.

    Because both 17 and 23 are prime numbers, it isn't possible to simplify this calculation, so you will need to use find a calculator that has sufficient capacity to be able to handle numbers of this length.

    The xnumbers add-in for Microsoft Excel can also be useful for this sort of calculation (do an internet search for it).

    Using the Windows calculator, MOD55 of the above number is 18.

    The [MODE] key can be used to select the modes described below.
    Important! The following is a general explanation of Scientific Calculator modes. Note that your calculator may not include all of the modes described here.
    1) Calculation Modes
    Before performing a calculation, you first need to select the appropriate calculation mode.
    COMP: Basic arithmetric calculations
    (arithmetic operations, trigonometric functions, etc.)
    COMPLEX: Complex number calculations
    SD: Single-variable statistical calculations
    (sample standard deviation, etc.)
    LR or REG: Paired-variable statistical calculations
    (linear regression statistical calculations, etc.)
    BASE or BASE-n: Binary, octal, decimal, hexadecimal number system calculations
    MAT: Matrix calculations (determinants, etc.)
    VCT: Vector calculations
    EQU: nth degree equations, simultaneous equations
    2) Display Settings
    Use these settings to control how calculation results are displayed.
    Note that changing the Fix and Sci settings does not affect internal calculation results.
    Norm: Exponential display format and cancels the currently configured Fix and Sci settings.
    Fix: Specifies a fixed number of digits to the right of the decimal place.
    Sci: Specifies a fixed number of significant digits.
    3) Angle Unit Setting
    (90°=?/2 radians=100 grads)
    Deg: Degrees
    Rad: Radians
    Gra: Grads
    4) Engineering Mode
    Use this mode when you want to input and perform calculations using engineering symbols.
