Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

For example, when I type square root 3, it shows square root 3 as an answer instead of 1.73... is there a way to change the setting so that it would be answered in decimal?

You should feel happy that your calculator can perform some exact calculations. If you do not want the exact values you can press the SD key. You can also press SHIFT EXE rather than EXE alone.

If, for example, you're getting the square root of 3 as the square root of 3, press the S-D button (just above the DEL) button to convert the symbolic result to a decimal result.

If you want all results to come up in decimal, press SHIFT SETUP 2 to select the LineIO mode.

Press SHIFT [SETUP] 1 to set the MthIO mode.

Try calculating the square root of 8 (press sqrt 8 =). Do you get 2sqrt2?

Sorry, but the fx-115ES can only display square roots in radical form. Cube roots are beyond its symbolic capabilities and will always be in decimal form.

This calculator can show the results in radical form if it involves square roots. The 4th root of 243 is 3 times the fourth root of 3, which unfortunately is beyond the calculator's capabilities to display in radical form. Try taking the fourth root of 3 (or equivalently, the square root of the square root of 3) and you'll see the calculator display the result in decimal.

You can use the square-root function for any number, whether it's a perfect square or not. For example, to calculate the square root of 2, press SHIFT [square-root] 2 EXE .

[square-root] is on the x^2 key, just to the right of the ALPHA key.

The capability of these calculators to handle irrational numbers in radical form is limited to square roots. Roots of index other than 2 are always displayed in their decimal representation.

If the calculator IO mode is set to MathIO, square roots will be displayed with the radical symbol. More complicated expressions with square roots might not be preserved and will be given as decimal numbers.

It can handle square root but if result requires too much display space it will be displayed as a decimal.As to higher order roots such as cube , 4th and higher they are displayed as decimal. Sorry, there is nothing you can do about it.

You cannot. The calculator does not have the Natural Display (math display) feature. I have heard that you can flash it with the OS of an FX-9860GII. At your own risk.

You use the power root function key accessible with the key sequence [SHIFT][X ^]. I am inserting a screen capture from the manual to show you the sequence.

On the third line of the capture (power root) is the key you must press. In the small rectangle to the left of the radical sign you enter the order of the root: 2 for square root, 3 for cube root, 4 for 4th root and son on.

To calculate the decimal log you use the [LOG] key as shown on capture. For natural log (ln), use the [LN] key. The argument (2/3) in your example should be enclosed inside the parentheses.
