Does the E code look like 10.8372487489E12?

If so, the calculator is either set to scientific notation mode OR the result was an answer that was too big to display on the calculator, so it converted it to scientific notation. To convert from scientific notation back to regular notation, move the decimal to the right by the number of times after the E. In this case, the number after the E is 12, so we have to move the decimal to the right 12 times. In this case, I get the final answer as 10 837 248 748 900.

Good luck.

Any questions, let me know.

You can write it in different manners. But there are two special ways scientific notation and engineering notation.

**Scientific Notation** (d stands for digit, any digit), D is any digit except 0

D.dddd....d*10^(exponent) . The first digit, before the decimal mark is 1,2,3,4,5,6, 7,8 or 9

You case

567346.=5.67346*10^5

**Engineering notation**

The exponent must be a multiple (positive or negative of 3)

Your case

567,346=0.567346*10^(6). The first digit can be 0.

The number of decimal digits retained depends on the number of so-called significant digits.

All calculator use scientific notation if the result is too small or too large. Some, like the Casio FX9750G II, offer you two Normal displays, Norm1 and Norm2 that have different limits when numbers are converted to scientific notations.

Here is how to set one or the other.

In Run>Mat press SHIFT MODE (Setup). Scroll down or up to reach the display line. Press F3 to select Norm1 or Norm2.

You need to select the number of decimal places you would like, or if you would like the calculator to behave as normal. Press SET UP and select FSE (press 1) . You now have 5 options.

0: FIX means you can choose a fixed number of decimal places for every calculation.

1: SCI means scientific notation and choose the number of significant values you would like to deal with.

2: ENG means engineering and the power goes up in multiples of 3.

3: NORM1 and 4: NORM2 are the usual or normal settings on the calculator. Most school calculations will use NORM1 mode.

Engineering notation ALWAYS puts the exponent as a multiple of three (kilo, mega, giga, etc). If you want the exponent as it is, use scientific notation. You can put the fx-115EX into scientific notation by pressing SHIFT MODE 7 and then entering the number of digits you want after the radix mark. Unfortunately there is no way to have the calculator adjust both the mantissa and exponent by anything other than three.

This is indicating that the calculator is set to a fixed decimal notation. You can change the notation to scientific or engineering, but in those cases you'll see either "SCI" or "ENG" on the display in place of the "FIX".

You can also specify a floating notation by pressing 2nd [FLO], in which case none of the annunciators light up.

You've got the display set to fixed decimal notation. To change it, press SHIFT MODE 7 to switch to a scientific notation or SHIFT MODE 8 and then 1 or 2 to switch to one of the norm display modes.

norm1 switches to scientific notation if the magnitude of the number is less than 0.01 .

norm2 switches to scientific notation if the magnitude of the number is less than 0.000000001 .

norm1 switches to scientific notation if the magnitude of the number is less than 0.01 .

norm2 switches to scientific notation if the magnitude of the number is less than 0.000000001 .

Press SHIFT MODE. You can select either 6 for Fixed-decimal notation or 8 for Normal notation.

Unfortunately, you don't. For numbers whose magnitudes differ too greatly from 1, the calculator automatically switches to scientific (or engineering) notation. You can press MODE and change the display settings, but there is no setting that will force the calculator to show this number without an exponent.

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.
