Question about Casio FX-115ES Scientific Calculator

Ad

Hello,

Times are achanging. The powers of 10 used to be represented by EXP or even EE. But cheer up, it seems that Casio came to its senses and now they represent it as x10X (multiply by 10 to the Xth power) It is the middle key on the lowest row.

After you press the key, enter the exponent.

Sorry but you are using the word EQUATION incorrectly. All you have is two numbers you want to divide one by the other.

Enter the numerator 1EE (-) 14, press the division key / then enter the 5 EE (-) 12. Press the = sign.

Note: to enter the negative sign in the exponents, use the change sign key marked**(-), (+/-) or [+/-] **. Do not use the regular MINUS sign.

When you use the EE key, you must not enter the 10. It is understood because EE is a shortcut for***10^**.

No EE button (on Texas Instruments). Use the x*10^x

The EXP button, just above the 7 button.

If it is a **scientific calculator,** it has a key marked **EE** or** Exp **or **x10^X. **

To enter a number in scientific notation, you enter the decimal part, then you press the power of 10 key (EE, Exp, or x10^X) followed by the exponent.

The EXP key is what's marked EE on most calculators and adds a decimal exponent. 2 EXP 3 means 2*10^3 which is 2000 as you've discovered.

You need to use the x^y key (just above DEL) instead.

Hello,

If you have the [EE] key (sometimes labeled [Exp], or [times 10 to the x], you enter your expression as 1[EE](-9). If you do not have that key you can use the general power key [X to the y] or [Y to the x] or [^] depending on calculator 10[^](-9) = 0.000000001 or equivalently 1.0000x10^(-9)

EE or EXP are shortcuts for times 10 to the power.

Hope it helps.

Hello,

The [EE] or [Exp] shortcut is the source of much grief to the students.

When you press the [Exp] 0 you are in fact entering 1.00 so

**[EE] (-)1 [=] gives 0.1**

**[EE] (-)2 [=] gives 0.01**

Thus

**10[EE](-)2 is 10[x][EE](-)2 or 10[x]0.01 = 0.1**

The new generation of calculators does not have the [Exp] or [EE] key. It is replaced by a key with a more explicit label**[times 10 to the X]**

Hope it helps.

the EXP button is the one that says 'x10' next to the 'Ans' key at the bottom.

Hello,

I dont think you got a lemon.

You acn always enter the powers of 10 as 10, [y^x], but is is less efficient than the EE key

This EE representation is a shortcut.

If you want 10 to the 5th power you just enter [2nd] [EE] 5 and the calculator displays 100000. Of course if you need any other number multiplying the power of ten you enter the following e.g. 2.677[x][2nd][EE]5.

You will not get any error with a positive exponent. But if your exponent is negative you should use the change signe key to the left of ENTER and symbolized by (-)

To avoid all errors I would use parentheses to enclose my exponent.

Here is how to explain the seemingly erroneous result

10 [EE] 5 ) (-) is interpreted by your calculator as 10x(10^(-5)) which evaluates correctly to 0.0001 because [EE] by itself stands for 10^ .

Hope it clarifies this point for you.

By the way some new calculators (Casio) don't have this EE key. Instead you find a key labeled x10^X .

x10 to the power of x is the EXP button, just press this and then the number it is to the power of!
