Question about Texas Instruments TI-30 XIIS Calculator

# My Texas Instruments Calculator (TI-30X IIS) keeps giving me "Syntax Error"

I am trying to perform this function: (6.4 x 10^-8)(0.0625) When I write the entire function above into my calculator, "Syntax Error" is my result. Please help as I am writing a quiz tomorrow with these types of problems (Equilibrium Problems) and It's important that I practice before then. This is the only calculator I have to use. The solution SHOULD be 4.0 x 10^-8 All answers are appreciated! Thanks so much.

The calculator doesn't handle implied multiplication, so you must explicitly enter the multiplication operator.

6 . 4 2nd EE (-) 8 * . 0 6 2 5 =

if you want to use your calc for this you would have to put it in as the operations to change the mixed to improper fraction i.e. input exactly as "((8*3)+6)*((3*7)+1)="  remember?  take denominator times whole number plus numerator and put over denominator to convert from mixed to improper... hope this helps

You must enter 100+10%100 or 100+10%(100). This will give you the correct answer of 110.

Press the key that is marked with a small circle, an apostrophe, and a double quotation mark. That is the DMS key. You can use it to convert from Decimal degress to DMS and back.

### I get syntax error on every function - no matter what i do...any ideas? is the calculator just broken?

If it can complain about your syntax, then it is still working properly.
For certain functions you enter the number, press the function key and you get the answer.
For other functions, you press the function key, then the number, and after that the equal sign to get the result.
