Question about Sharp EL-531VB Calculator
I am trying to resolve math.question but I am stuck because do not know where on calculator is" antilog"
I am trying to find out where is "INV","shift" or 2nd +log.please help me.
Please read the following with patience.
If y is the log of x, then x is the antilog of y
Let's get back to you problem : To obtain the antilog you use the key marked with a 10^x.
Exemple1: What is the antilog of 3
Answer: Antilog(3) =10^3 =1000 because log(1000) =3.
Exemple 2: What is the antilog of 1.543765?
Antilog(1.543765) = 10^ (1.543765)= 34.97558603
Exemple3: What is the antilog of -0.37654?
Answer: Antilog (-0.37654) =10^(-0.37654) =0.4202038237
Look on the body of the calculator if there is key or a [Shift] key labeled with 10^x ( a 10 with a small raised x). If you are able to find it, use it. If not, you can always use the [raise to the power key] ( a caret ^, or Y to the x or X to the y.) For the last exemple, you type it as follows.
10 [^] (-) 0.37654 [=/ENTER]. The (-) is the change sign not the regular Minus.
Hope it helps.
