Hi,
The source of errors is most certainly due to the wrong schoice of angle unit (degree or radian). If the default angle unit set in your calculator is the degree, any value fed to the trigonometric functions (sin, cos, tan) is considered to be expressed in degrees. Consequently, if you calculate the arctangent ( tan^-1) of a value, the angle returend by that inverse trigonometric function is expressed implicitly in degrees.

Similarly if radian is the default angle unit in your calculator, any angle returned by an inverse trigonometric function (arcos, arcsin, arctan) is in radian.

Set the default angle unit as the one required by your problem at hand. This way, the angles returned will be in the right unit and you will not have a problem of interpretation.

Hope it helps.

### How do i enter an exponent on the

It depends on the base of the power function.
For exponential function use [SHIFT][LN] (e^x) followed by the exponent value. If exponent is negative use the change sign +/- key before exponent.
For a general power, type in the base (number), then press the [Y^x] key followed by the exponent.
For a power of 10, use the [Exp] key. Careful here. For example to enter 1.6x10^(-19), type in 1.6, press the [Exp] key, then the change sign key +/- and the exponent. Press [=]
1 . 6 [Exp] +/- 19 [=]

### How do i do exponent 4

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.

### 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.
