Check the understanding of the problem you are dealing with. The result is much too be for any practical application. result is greater than 10^500.

I don't have this calculator, but let's give this a shot and see if it gives us the correct answer.

Let's try 10 to the exponent -2. The rule for negative exponents is to put 1 on the top and the term with a positive exponent on the bottom. In this case, it would be 1 on the top and 10 to the exponent 2 on the bottom, or 1 / 100 or 0.01.

In the calculator, enter 10, hit the x to the power of y key, left bracket (, the negative key (-), 2, the right bracket ), and finally the = key. You might not have to enter the left and right brackets, but I like to enter them to understand what I enter in brackets is the exponent.

Let me know if it works and if you have any other questions.

Good luck.

Exponents of 10 are entered by pressing [2nd][X^-1] (EE).

For powers of any base, enter the base, press the [^] (below PI) then enter exponent. Use the (-) white key if exponent is negative.

Press the (-) key located just to the right of the decimal point key before entering the exponent. Don't use the - key to the right of the 6 and 9 keys, this is to subtract one number from another. The (-) key is for negating numbers.

To enter exponents (1, 2, 3, -3..) use the general power key marked with Y^x or X^y or ^. Enter the base press the general power key then the exponent. If exponent is negative try enclosing it in parentheses. use the change sign key (-) to enter the negative sign before the exponent.

To enter power of 10, you can use the shortcut key marked Exp (the 10 must not appear when the Exp is used to enter exponents for power of 10).

Use the EE key (just above the 7 key) to enter an exponent. For a negative exponent, use the +- key (just to the right of the decimal point key) to enter the negative sign.

For example, to enter 1.2 x 10^-21, press 1 . 2 EE +- 2 1

To switch the display mode to scientific notation, press 2nd [SCI] (the 5 key).

The same way you'd work with positive exponents. The only difference is that a negative exponent has a negative sign, entered with the (-) key just to the right of the decimal point.

The (-) is used to enter negative numbers, not just exponents. The - key is used to subract one value from another.

Type in the mantissa, then the EE key (for Enter Exponent) above the 7 key, then the exponent. If it's a negative exponent, press the (-) key to the right of the decimal point before entering the exponent.

Use the EE (enter exponent) key (2nd-shift of the key just above the 7) to enter the exponent. Use the (-) key just to the right of the decimal point to enter a negative number.

The - key subtracts one number from another. The (-) key enters a negative number.

Hi,

You have a key labeled [Y to the x], use it for all the powers or roots that do not have a dedicated key or key sequence. Let the key be [^]

Ex: 13.675 to the power 1.33 is entered as 13.675 [^] (1.33) [=].

The result is 32.41778634

Ex: (-64)[^](2/3) [=] gives 16 as result. The (-) is the change sign key

Ex: (2.87655)^(-6.778) is entered as 2.87655 [^] ( (-) 6.778 ) [=] 0.0007758

The (-) is the change sign (or the negative of), not the regular minus. When you have a negative exponent or a complicated exponent, it is safer to enclose the whole exponent inside parentheses.

Hope it helps.

You can download the guidebook for this calculator from TI here.

From page 16:

To enter a number in scientific notation:

1) Enter up to 10 digits for the base (mantissa). If negative, press the +/- key. (The key has two curvy arrows between the + and - but I can't do that on my keyboard.)

2) Press the EE key.

3) Enter a 1 or 2-digit exponent. If negative, press +/- either before or after entering exponent.

They give the example 1.2345 +/- EE +/- 65 which would display -1.2345 -65.
