How to calculate 1.025^4

How to Use a TI-30XA
The TI-30XA is a scientific calculator with many functions. You can calculate problems with fractions and decimals, as well as solve problems of probability and functions. A scientific calculator computes the number sentence you type in using the order of operations: parentheses first, then roots and exponents, then division and multiplication and, finally, addition and subtraction.

  1. How to Use a TI-30XA
    • 1

      Press the [ON/C] key to turn on the calculator. Press the [OFF] key to turn it off. To use the calculator in solar mode, put the solar panel in the light and then press the [ON/C] key. To turn it off when in solar mode, slide the calculator cover back on and it will automatically shut off.

    • 2

      Replace the batteries by first removing the cover and placing it face down. Use a Phillips-head screwdriver to unscrew the back panel. Remove the back panel and change the batteries. Screw the back panel back on. Press [OFF] [ON/C] and [ON/C].

  • Use the basic operation keys for addition [+], subtraction [-], multiplication [x] and division [/]. To change the signs of your values from positive to negative or vice versa, press the [+ -] key before the numbers you enter. Use the parentheses, [(] and [)], to command the calculator to solve what is inside the parentheses first. Press the [=] to solve the number sentence you entered into the calculator.

  • 4

    Find percents of a number by first typing in the number, then [x], then the percent number, [2nd], [%] and, finally, [=]. The [2nd] key allows you to use the commands that are written above each key. For example, to find 20% of 100, type in 100 [x] 20 [2nd] [%] [=] and the display will show the answer, 20.

  • 5

    Turn decimals into fractions by entering the decimal value, then pressing the [2nd] and [F D] keys, then [=]. Turn the fraction back into a decimal by pressing [2nd] and [F D] again. For example, to turn 0.5 into a fraction, type in 0.5 [2nd] [F D] [=].

  • 6

    Turn mixed numbers into improper fractions by entering the mixed number first. Type in the whole number, then the [a b/c] key, then the numerator, the [a b/c] key again and the denominator. Next, press [2nd] [d/c] [=], and the calculator will convert your mixed number into an improper fraction. Press [2nd] [d/c] again to turn it back into a mixed number. For example, to turn 1 1/2 into an improper fraction type in 1 [a b/c] 1 [a b/c] 2 [2nd] [d/c] [=], and the display will show the answer 3/2.

  • 7

    Switch the notation setting of the calculator between engineering, scientific and floating. To select scientific notation, press the [2nd] and [SCI] keys; this will display your answers in scientific notation as a number between 1 and 10 to a power of 10. Press [2nd] [ENG] to switch to the engineering setting; this setting displays values as a number with an exponent that is a multiple of 3. Press [2nd] [FLO] to switch to the floating setting. This is considered standard notation and will display the answer as a standard number.

  • 8

    Use the left arrow key to go back and delete numbers to the right of the cursor that you typed into the display. This must be done before you press [=]. To clear the screen, values and operations, press [ON/C] and [ON/C] again in battery mode, or [CE/C] and [CE/C] again in solar mode.

  • Hope it helps your problem. Thanks!

    How do i get rid of the CE blinking on my printer?

    The CE error code could either be due to a communication problem between one of your cartridges and the printer or a short in one of the cartridges. Please follow the steps below to fix the problem:

    1. Make sure the printer is on.

    2. Open the printer cover. The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position, unless the All-in-One is busy.

    3. Remove both cartridges from the carrier.

    4. Close the printer cover.

    5. Rebrick (pull out power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds).

    6. When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first.

    7. Close the printer cover and check for any errors.

    8. If no error appears, reinsert the other cartridge. Close the printer cover.

    9. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear with a new cartridge.

    If problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

    Sharp EL- M332 caluclator- have a 'O' along top line- can't seem to get rid of it- must have accidentally selected something. It is not showing any decimals.

    Hold (C.CE) then whilst holding it press (M+) for approximately a second and it will move one place along in the three settings (F, 2 and 0) F shows full decimals, 2 shows 2 decimal places and 0 as yours is set to now round to the nearest whole number. I have just been sat at my desk trying to work this out as my calculator was too set to '0'. Took me reading the 'DEC DET' text with lines pointing at 'M+' and 'C.CE' to finally crack it!

    Hope this helps.

    Tape will not turn

    The more detailed the description of the problem, the better for diagnosing the root cause. Thanks.

    It sounds like you have a couple of problems. I'll address them as you have them numbered above.

    1. Decks typically have belts to drive the various 'reel' mechanisms. Therefore, they can slip without breaking anything inside the machine or the tape. Your first symptom leads me in that direction.

    2. That it migrated is mysterious, unless Sony is using a common motor to handle both decks' reel duties.

    3. This symptom may have something to do with the root cause of both sides jamming...

    Do the cassette well doors come off, say, for cleaning? Could they be dislodge? If so, they may have something to do with the jamming problems in # 1 and #2 as the doors play a part in positioning the cassette and holding it in place against the reel motor cogs. How do the doors operate with NO tape inserted?

    Does it take excessive force to close the door only WITH a tape? make sure the tape is fully seated before closing the door. The capstans (directly below each reel cog) have to engage through the small holes at the lower edge of the cassette. They should be straight and clean. Any dirt or oxide on them will cause problems as these are what move the tape at the precise speed necessary for good playback or recording.

    My hipshot recommendation, otherwise, is to look around inside the cassette wells very carefully for any foreign matter, debris, dust bunnies.

    Do you maintain the deck as recommended?

    No blue colors projected on screen

    Only a few causes for this problem. "Splotches" are usually caused by dust in the light engine which can sometimes be blown out using compressed air. Pink picture is caused by either data or burnt lcd card. Procedure for data is: put tv to ch. 3 and turn power off. simultaneously press input and power on set for three seconds to access service menu. Be very careful not to change settings other than what needs changed. These adjustments are changed using directional arrows. Navigate to "memory init" then hold (r) arrow button for 5 seconds. You will know if it worked. Then exit and/or turn set off. Please let me know if this is successful as I have additional info you may need. Good luck, Russmann.

    Toshiba TV turns itself off

    I unscrewed the back of the CRT and vacuumed off the components (tv unplugged of course, and wait a while for capacitors to loose their charge). This seemed to fix the problem. In addition to that, it got rid of the faint red hourglass lines that I had noticed when the screen was supposed to be black.
