You can use the units menu (2nd > 3) to place a unit after some number you want to qualify as being an unit, or you can just type them in like 5_ft + 6_in. Note that you need to add on each part if you are doing mixed measurements; there is no _ft_in combination. So just add each manually - in your case you would do (5_ft + 6_in) - (2_ft + 8_in)

post is rather exhaustive as regards the matrix capabilities of the
calculator. So if the post recalls things you already know, please skip
them. Matrix multiplication is at the end. As to division of matrices, I do not believe that this operation exits.
Let me explain how to create matrices. (If you know how to do it, skip to the operations on matrices, at the end.)
First you must set Matrix calculation
[MODE][6:Matrix]. Then By entering one of the numbers [1:MatA] or [2:Matb] or [3:MatC] you get to choose the dimensions of the matrix
(mxn]. Once finished entering the matrix you clear the screen.
The operations on matrices are available by pressing [Shift][Matrix]
[1:Dim] to change the dimension of a matrix (in fact redefining the matrix)
[2: D A T A] enter values in a matrix
[3:MatA] access Matrix A
[4:Matb] access Matrix B
[5:MatC] access matrix C
[6:MatAns] access the Answer Matrix (the last matrix calculated)
[7:det] Calculate the determinant of a matrix already defined
[8:Trn] The transpose of a matrix already defined
To add matrices MatA+MatB (MUST have identical dimensions same m and same n, m and n do not have to be the same)
To subtract MatA-MatB. (MUST have identical dimensions, see above)
To multiply MatAxMatB (See below for conditions on dimensions)
To raise a matrix to a power 2 [x2], cube [x3]
To obtain inverse of a SQUARE MatA already defined MatA[x^-1]. The key [x^-1] is the x to the power -1 key. If the determinant of a matrix is zero, the matrix is singular and its inverse does not exit.
Dimensions of matrices involved in operations must match. Here is a short summary
The multiplication of structured mathematical entities (vectors, complex numbers, matrices, etc.) is different from the multiplication of unstructured (scalar) mathematical entities (regular numbers). As you well know matrix multiplication is not commutative> This has to do with the dimensions.
An mXn matrix has m rows and n columns. To perform multiplication of an kXl matrix by an mXn matrix you multiply each element in one row of the first matrix by a specific element in a column of the second matrix. This imposes a condition, namely that the number of columns of the first matrix be equal to the number of rows of the second.
Thus, to be able to multiply a kXl matrix by am mXn matrix, the number of columns of the first (l) must be equal to the number of rows of the second (m).
So MatA(kXl) * MatB(mXn) is possible only if l=m
MatA(kX3) * Mat(3Xn) is possible and meaningful, but
Mat(kX3) * Mat(nX3) may not be possible.
To get back to your calculation, make sure that the number of columns of the first matrix is equal to the number of rows of the second. If this condition is not satisfied, the calculator returns a dimension error. The order of the matrices in the multiplication is, shall we say, vital.

SOURCE: I have an Casio fx-300ES,
All you need to know is how to enter a number in scientific notation. As to the operations you do them the usual way: For example, to multiply you enter a number (in any notation) press the multiplication key then enter the second number (in any notation) and press the = sign to get the result.
The problem is that the result may not be in scientific notation format. But for that you can configure the calculator to always show results in scientific format. Here is how to force that. Press [SHIFT][MODE] to enter (SetUp). In the screen that displays enter the number for the option SCI. You will then be prompted to specify the number of decimal digits. You will enter a number between 0 and 9. If you select 0 you will not have decimals in the result, and if you enter 9 you will have 9 decimals. What is the appropriate number of decimal place to keep in the FINAL result will depend on the number of significant digits in the measuremnets.
To enter a number in scientific notation (ex: 6.25x10^(-4))
You enter the so-called mantissa 6.25
You press the key at the bottom of keypad that is marked as [X10^x]
You enter the change sign (-) followed by the exponent 4
If your calculator is in MathIO you will be able to verify that what was entered is exactly what was neant. In MathIO, you move cursor up or down using the Up or Down arrow. When you finish entering the exponent you use the right arrow to bring cursor to the main level.
