How would you do this problem on this calculator? I can't seem to figure out how to put in the second half since it has a negative exponent.
Do I used parenthesis??

(2x3^2) divided by (2x3^-2)

Ad

(2x3^2) divided by (2x3^(-2))

just make sure to use double parenthesis around the negative exponent so that you get the right answer

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 integer powers of 10 you can use the EE shortcut. [2nd][,] displays E.

For non-integer values of the exponent (such as -5.34) you must use the key sequence [2nd][LOG] (10^x) then enter your negative non-integer exponent.

If you mean an exponent of ten, use the EE function (the shifted function of the "," key, located just above the "7" key. For example, to enter 1.2 times ten to the negative 3, press 1 . 2 2ND [EE] (-) 3

To raise a number to an exponent, use the ^ key located just above the divide key. For example, to calculate 3 raised to the 4th, press 3 ^ 4 ENTER

To enter a power of 10 use the key EE

For 9.1x10^(-31): type 9.1 [EE] [(-)] 31. Here [(-)] is the change sign key.

4 ^ (-) 2

The ^ key is just above the divide key, the (-) key is just to the right of the decimal point key.

To enter an exponent, positive or negative, use the EE (Enter Exponent) key (the shifted function of the , key just above the 7 key). Do 5 2ND [EE] (-) 1 0 / 5 2ND [EE] (-) 1 0 ENTER and you'll see 1.

What I think you're doing (I can't be sure without seeing your keystrokes) is calculating

5*10^-10/5*10^-10 which is interpreted as (5*10^-10/5)*10^-10, which indeed is 10^-20.

To raise e to the xth power, use e^x, which is the second function of the LN key to the left of the 4 key.

To enter a decimal exponent, use EE, which is the second function of the , key above the 7 key.

To raise a value to another value, use the ^ key, above the divide key.

Also, don't forget to use (-) instead of - when entering a negative exponent (or any other negative value).

The same way you would divide by any other number. Just use the EE key (just above the 7) to enter the exponent. If the exponent is negative, use the +<>- key (just to the left of the =) to enter the negative sign.

You entered it correctly. Although you can leave out the parentheses if you want. The calculator will do exponents before it does multiplication or division just like it does multiplication and division before it does addition and subtraction. It has a built in order for hierarchy of operations. You only need to use parentheses if you want to do something that is different from this order. FYI, dividing by a negative exponent is the same as multiplying by a positive exponent. You could enter it in either way. .825/10^-3 = .825*10^3 = 825. I hope this helps you out.
