Whenever I type data into the calculator it changes from its original format to a smaller figure times 10 to the power of something.

eg. 12 becomes 1.2E1

please help!

Hi,

best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.

goodluck!

I am not sure what you mean. Even politicians use the term exponential so it has become blurry.

16=2^4 The power function is related to the exponential.

16=1.6*10^1 Scientific notation. Scientific notation is an exponential display format.

Take your pick.

45 700 = 45700.00..... Notice the decimal mark inserted after the second 0.

In scientific notation you must have ONE digit before the decimal mark: 4.7500 (it is not finished).

By moving the decimal mark from its original place after the second zero to its new place after the 4, you have divided the number by 10000 (one zero for each position change). To recover the original number you must multiply 4.57 by 10000. This is compacted as *10^4.

Thus 45700=4.57*10^4 or as the calculator displays it 4.57E04

If you are entering a number in scientific notation do not use *10^04, but press the [SHIFT][,] for a TI83Plus, followed by the exponent.

Scientific notation is a number format that has the following structure (d stands for digit)

one digit decimal mark several other digits [times] 10 raised to power of exponent

d [decimal mark] dddddd...[x] 10^ (-) dd

Here are two examples the last two results. The number of digits after the decimal mark is select by the user depending on the number of significant digits in the data. The exponent can be positive or negative.

In you case, to enter x10^ you press the [EE] key (no 10 is entered) the sign of the exponent and the value of exponent.

Hello,

The error comes from the lack of understanding of the meaning of the notation used by the calculator manufacturers.

The [EE] is a "shorthand" notation for**times 10 to the power of **.

To convince you of it try entering

**1[EE]0 [=] this is 1*10^0=1*1=1**

1[EE]1 [=] this is 1*10^1=1*10=10

1[EE]2 [=] this is 1*10^2=1*100=100

When you enter 7.82x10[EE]10

you are calculating

7.82*10*1*10^10=7.82x10^11.

Hope it helps.

Hello,

Press [SHIFT][MODE][6:Fix] and press a numbetr between (0--9). The number you select will be the number of decimal places your results have. However if a result is smaller than 0.001 it will be in scientific notation.

Hope it helps.

Comments: Oct 10, 2009 - Your question is not clear. What is regular math equation? When you talk about scientific and engineering notation, the reader assumes you have a problem with these and shows you how to recover the "regular" display format , the "normal" format.

Since that is not what ails the calculator, I am going to assume you want to go back to the MathIO input format that allows you manipulate fractions and radicals and logs in bases other than 10 and e. To get that mode

Press [SHIFT][MODE][1:MathIO]

If on the other hand, you want the input format that is prevalent in the previous generation of scientific calculators, namely the LineIO, then you restore it by pressing

[SHIFT][MODE[2:LineIO].

If that does not answer your question, then what is your question?

One solution that you might try is to put the scientific numbers in parentheses. For instance open parenthesis, type in the first scientific notation then close parenthesis, next hit the divide key and then open parenthesis and type in the 2nd number in scientific that you are dividing by and then close parenthesis. Hit enter or =. I'm not sure if this will fix your problem, but it is worth a try.

If you mean using the "EE" key it's straightforward.

To enter scientific numbers, enter the number, then press EE, then the exponent value. The TI-30XA will stay in scientific display until you "clear" or turn it off. It will also switch to scientific notation if you multiply big numbers that exceed the display.

E.g. Input 3, EE, 10, X, 3, EE, 10, =, gives you the answer 9 times 10 to the power 20. Press the "square root" key and you will get back 3 times 10 to the power 10.

You can mix entries too, e.g. 3, EE, 10, X, 2, =, gives you 6 times 10 the power 10....
