CPT does stand for COMPUTE, on other calculators this is the COMP button, same thing, different name.

    CPT does mean compute, which is shortened down to COMP on the Sharp calculator.


    To solve (or compute) your question, press COMP --> PV

I have the same problem and I have been searching for a answer and it seems there is not one out there. By deductive reasoning I have come up with a theory. I think the CPT button stands for compute on Texas Instruments calculators. All other ones I have found do not have this button. I have an HP and it does not have this button either, but you do not need it. Just leave out the CPT and you should get the answer. The CPT is just an extra button to compute on Texas Instruments, I think. Try entering in everything in the same order, just leave out the CPT. Hope this helps :)

If you are talking about the multiplication sign, look for a key marked with a cross. It should be in the same column as the other operations, between the subtraction (-) and the division keys.

How do you raise to a power on a Sharp el-738 business calculato?


I don't know about this specific calculator, but there is probably a button on your calculator that has a "y" with an "x" as a superscript (exponent). Or is could be reversed. But you wanted 2^8, you would push the 2 first, then the exponent button, then the 8, and there's your answer.

Good luck.
