Question about Texas Instruments TI-86 Calculator
If there is no special key reserved for that operation, you can use the raise to an arbitrary power key. This key is represented as [^] ( a caret or accent circonflexe) or [X to the y] or [Y to the x ]. I have just verified : it is primary key accessible directly.
If you want the cube of a number; 2 [^]3 =2x2x2=8.
In your algebra course they must have taught you that the roots of a number (square, cube, fourth, fifth, nth) are equivalents to raising that number to a fractionary power (a power whose exponent is a fraction of the form 1/2 ,1/3, 1/4, 1/5, 1/n etc.)
27[^] (1/3) = cube root of 23 = 3
Hope it helps.
