    I want to add a new breaker to my service and I want to know if the the service coming it will handle a new breaker. I would also like to know if in the future if I could add more breakers and at what amps.

    I'm not looking to wire it myself I just want to know if I have the availability to have a new breaker put in. Don't jump to conclusion before you ask all the right questions... I was not planing on wiring this myself just want to cut cost on getting a election to see that I don't have the right service...

You'll need what is known as a AC clamp-on meter,but, I'll warn you they are very expensive. What exactly are you trying to survey? Power usage by appliances and the such?

    Trust me when I say that, first of all it is illeagle to change your own wiring configuration unless, you are a licensed eletrician. Secondly, one small mistake can cost you your house or even possibly your life. I suggest you call in a proffesional electrician,Sorry!

How many watts does a old gibson 21.6 cu ft freezer use

Check the nametag on the fridge and take note of the total amperage draw of the unit. That that reading, and multiply it by 120 volts and the resultant answer will the the total wattage of the unit... If you want to get it precise, measure the applied voltage at the receptacle where it is plugged in. Your 120 volt circuit may really be supplying 125 volts or more and that will effect the calculation....though minimally.

How to calculate npv

Hi there,

To calculate present value you need to type in all the other missing values and then press COMP and PV.
For example: if the future value is R5000, the interest is 12% p.a. compounded monthly and it paid over 3 years.
Type in 5000 and press FV
type in 12 and I/Y
Press 2nd F and I/Y and make sure P/Y says 12 (for 12 payments per year).
Press ON
press 3 press 2nd F N and then press N again (for 36 payments in total). Make sure your screen says ANS -> N otherwise the calculation will not work.
Now if if your payments are 0 (in other words you are not making monthly payments) then press 0 and PMT,
Otherwise, if you are making monthly payments for e.g. R200 a month, type in +/- 200 PMT.
Now calculate your original amount by pressing COMP PV.
If you made no payments your original amount should be -3494.62
And if you chose to add payments your original amount should be
2 526.88.

TI-81 when turned on, screen is totally black, can perform calculations & barely see results on screen. is this a battery problem?

Adjust the screen contrast. Turn the calculator on. Press and release the 2nd key. Press and hold the down-arrow key to lighten the screen. If you go too far, use the 2nd and up-arrow keys to darken it.

How do I find what the percentage is . . . the amount is 4,117,484 out of a total amount of 163,715,657. I usually divide the amount by the total but when I use a calculator to check (by multiplication)...

100*4117484/163715657 gives me about 2.5%. Since you didn't specify the calculator your're using, I can't give you the exact keystroke sequence, but on a typical algebraic calculator it would be something like 1 0 0 * 4 1 1 7 4 8 4 / 1 6 3 7 1 5 6 5 7 =

On an RPN or RPL calculator, it would be
1 0 0 ENTER 4 1 1 7 4 8 4 * 1 6 3 7 1 5 6 5 7 /

I do not have the manual. If I want to add or subtract do I put the total amount in and than hit the plus or minus key ? i.e., $128,000 -10000. do I hit the minus before the amount or after? -1500....

You can download the manual from

128000 - 10000 then press = or chain the calculation by pressing + or - and the number you want to add or subtract.

How do I find the standard deviation?

Here is a detailed exemple. Hope it helps.

Some comments on the various variables (should the information be needed. If not need, please skip it.)

1.All you have to do is follow the instructions key stroke for key stoke, but enter your own data.
2. If a number is repeated 3 times like the number 55, you can enter it 3 times or use the shortcut in the exemple
55 [2nd][FREQ]3 [Sigma+].
3.If you make a mistake and enter the wrong number, use the [Sigma-] key to remove it. That is similar to what a cashier does when an item is entered twice: it is entered a third time but with minus sign.
4. Every time an item is entered, the display shows the total number of items so far. When it is finished the cashier press the key that sums up the prices to get the total. This is the role of the [2nd][Sigma X] key combination.
5. The average number of the data is obtained by the [2nd][x bar] combination. The last two key combinations display the two type of deviations.

Check the theory you have been taught and try again. If that is not the type of statistics you were supposed to do, then give more information.
