SOURCE: No decimal display on TI BA-II calculator

Your BA II PLUS stores numeric values internally to an accuracy of 13 digits. However, the numbers it displays depends on the number of decimal places to which you have it set (choice of 0–9 or floating decimal). To set the number of decimal places displayed to three: hit [2ND][FORMAT][3][ENTER]This setting also continues indefinitely (even though the calculator is turned off and on) until it is changed.

SOURCE: where is the exponent key on the ba-ii plus

If you mean exponentiation (natural antilogarithm): 2nd e^x (e^x is just to the left of the 7 key).

If you want general powers: y^x (just above the 9 key).

If you want 10^x (common antilogarithm) or simply an [enter exponent] key, there are no keys for those. You'll just have to raise 10 to the desired exponent.

SOURCE: How to use negative exponents on a calculator?

Uh yes it will allow you to enter a negative exponent.... press the numbers you want then hit EXP button, then hit the +/- button and then the exponent. 60 % of the time, it works...... everytime.

If you do not have the Enter Exponent key (EE) you can use the general power key marked [Y^x], the one above the [9] key. Use parentheses to enclose the (10^23) and (10^28).

Frankly, if you have to do many calculations of this kind, better buy yourself a scientific calculator.

As an example, to calculate 2 raised to the 3rd power, press 2 y^x 3 =

Make sure you use the +/- key (located just right of the decimal point key) to enter a negative number. For example, to raise 3 to the -2 power, press 3 y^x 2 +/- =

The same way you raise a number to a non-fractional power, using the y^x button. For your example, press

3 y^x ( 1 / 1 2 ) =

or

3 y^x 1 2 1/x =

3 y^x ( 1 / 1 2 ) =

or

3 y^x 1 2 1/x =

The same way you type in a negative number. Use the +/- key to the right of the decimal point.

To raise a value to a power, use the y^x key located just above the 9 key. For example, to raise 2 to the third power, press 2 y^x 3 =

Unlike most calculators, there is no dedicated key for decimal exponents. You will have to use the above procedure to raise 10 to an exponent.

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.

To extract the roots of orders higher than 2, you can use the universal power key labeled as [Y to x]. if the exponent is an integer 3, 4, 5, 6 etc.

it gives the cube the 4th power, 5th, 6th, etc.

If the exponent is 1/3, 1/4, 1/5, 1/6 you calculate the cubic root, the 4th root and so on.

When you use it to calculate the roots, the radicand (the number the root of which you are calculating) must be positive, otherwise you may get the result as a complex number.

The syntax of the command is value [Y to x] (1/ order of root)

Ex: cube root of 27 is entered as 27 [Y to x] (1/3)

it gives the cube the 4th power, 5th, 6th, etc.
