Whenever I enter the ( sign it always finishes something else, one time i put something in parentheses and now every time i try to make a frown face, on the qwerty keyboard not the outside, it writes everything that i did have in parentheses. is there anyway to delete that?

The solution to this faulty autocomplete is to turn text entry mode from "Word" to either "Abc" or "ABC"

Here's how to change this problem.

1. Flip open your phone and hit the left soft key to go to "Message"

2. Hit the left soft key again to go to "Settings"

3. Hit "1" or click "OK" to specify "All Msg"

4. Hit "5" to specify "Entry Mode"

5. Choose "Abc" or "ABC" and hit "OK"

This is great if you use your Qwerty all the time, but if you need to be discrete and not flip open your phone and use the front keypad and "Word" text function, you'll be "ABC"ing your message like a noob.

LG needs to fix this software glitch, because if the phone is flipped open, it is supposed to default to "abc". There needs to be a text entry specifaction setting for both "front" and "main" or "flipped open".

Sounds like a software issue, good luck with that, if its warrantied, take it in.

Make sure you diidnt hit the Symbol key twice in a row, that tends to lock it in place, allthough if that was the case then you would be getting symble all the time.

It sounds like an update did not install correctly. I'd suggest performing a Soft Reset on your device by pressing and holding the Power button and the Volume Down button for approximately 10 seconds, until the phone vibrates. Once it vibrates, release both buttons.

Sorry to be frank about it, but your sentence ..**I dont want to have to read something that looks like it was typed in a forien language!!** is not flawless English.

Be it as it may, here is how you solve**most,** if not all, **high school algebraic equations.**

The secret is in the use of the mnemonic known as PEDMAS, or BEMDAS, which lists the priority of operations. USE IT BACKWARDS, and recursively (look up this word in an English dictionary).

*Basically one tries to use PEDMAS in reverse, identifying each operation and doing the inverse of it. If you have an addition, do a subtraction. If you have a multiplication, do a division. If you have a power, extract the root, and if you have a root raise to the corresponding power. *

When the factor to the left of parentheses is +1**(if nothing appears it is +1) **you can safely discard the parentheses.

After opening parentheses start again A/S then D/M, then Exponent/roots, parentheses, etc...**until the unknown sits by itself on one side of the equal sign.**

I hope that my English does not sound too much like a foreign language to you**. **I did my best because English is my third language.

Be it as it may, here is how you solve

The secret is in the use of the mnemonic known as PEDMAS, or BEMDAS, which lists the priority of operations. USE IT BACKWARDS, and recursively (look up this word in an English dictionary).

- Starting from the end of the mnemonic (A or S) look for a minus sign or a plus sign. Here you have 4-12, the result is -8.
- Your expression is equivalent to -8 -(X+3)=10
- To get rid of the -8 term on the left ADD +8 to BOTH sides of the equation and simplify. -8+8-(X+3)=10+8=18 or simpler still -(X+3)=18
- A minus sign in front of the parenthesis is in fact a multiplication by -1. Get rid of this factor : It is safer to get rid of the - sign in front of the parenthesis by multiplying BOTH sides of the equation by (-1). This gives you (X+3)=-18.
**MINUS signs are always signs of DANGER, to be handled with care.**

- Now you can safely open the parentheses: X+3=-18
- You have an addition in the left member. To isolate X, perform the operation that is inverse of addition, namely subtraction. Subtract 3 from both sides of the equation: X+3-3=-18-3, or
**X=-21** - X is isolated, and your equation is solved.

You use parentheses to enclose an expression. By doing so, you force the calculator to evaluate what is enclosed before moving on to the other parts of the calculation. You press the left parenthesis, you enter the expression to be enclosed, and you press the right parenthesis when you finish.

To enter exponents (1, 2, 3, -3..) use the general power key marked with Y^x or X^y or ^. Enter the base press the general power key then the exponent. If exponent is negative try enclosing it in parentheses. use the change sign key (-) to enter the negative sign before the exponent.

To enter power of 10, you can use the shortcut key marked Exp (the 10 must not appear when the Exp is used to enter exponents for power of 10).

Most likely you're having troubles with the negative sign, not the parenthesis.

Press 2 - ( 2 +/ ) =

The "+/-" key is the key just to the left of the "=" key, used to enter negative numbers.

For this problem you don't need parenthesis. You can simply press

2 - 2 +/- =

Press 2 - ( 2 +/ ) =

The "+/-" key is the key just to the left of the "=" key, used to enter negative numbers.

To do fractions on the TI-83, you must use parentheses.

The parentheses buttons (there are two of them, facing either way) are near the upper right corner of the buttons on the calculator.

To write a fraction, you must enclose it in parentheses, using the divide button (the slash) as the fraction sign (the line between the numerator and the denominator)

For example, this would be one half:

(1/2)

And this would be one third:

(1/3)

As long as the numbers are confined between parentheses, with no other numbers in there besides the fraction, they will act as a single group.

Don't ever be afraid to use plenty of parentheses, either!

For example, if you wanted to add one half to one third, and then multiply it all by three, the following would definitely be acceptable:

((1/2)+(1/3))*3

To Enter a basic fraction just enter the first number, then a division sign, then the second number. So two thirds would look like "2/3" (Without quotes). For more complicated fractions you may need to put parentheses for the left and/or right of the division sign like in the fraction (5+2^4)/(2-8). To get the calculator to show it as a fraction you would enter the fraction, then press (Math) then (1:Frac). So the input on your screen should look something like this "2/3>>Frac" (Without Quotes, and >> being a filled triangle pointing at the word Frac). From your post it sounds like you were putting the fraction last when it should have gone first.

Hello,

Here is a screen capture of the integral.

The dummy variable x may contain some previously defined value. Clear old values . In Home folder [2nd][F6: Clean Up][ 1:Clear a-z] [ENTER][ENTER] or [2:NewProb][ENTER][ENTER]

Make sure you insert the multiplication sign. And do not forget to put the argument x of the function inside parentheses.

Hope it helps.

Hello,

Use the small (-) sign sometimes labelled [(-)] or [+/-] and put the whole exponent netween parentheses 18 [y to the x] [(] [(-)] 3 [)] . On some calculators you enter the small - signe after the value of exponent,

18 [y t x] 3 (-) [Enter] should give you 1.7146E-4

In summary the small minus sign; the whole negative exponent between parentheses.

Hope it helps.

Hello,

You should know that you cannot enter something like sin^2(x) as you would by hand. So you must use parentheses:**( sin(x) )^2. **If you do that there is no ambiguity. The calculator evaluates the sine because parentheses are evaluated first, then it takes the square.

So 4[x]**[(]** [SIN]*[(] *60 *[)]* **[)] **[Xto the 2] [=] result is 3/

Since you do not say what model you use, what I entered may not be appropriate: the parentheses inside the sine function may not be needed. In the new Casio the first parenthesis inside the sine is supplied by calculator, but the closing one must be entered by the user.

Hope it helps
