Question about Texas Instruments TI-84 Plus Calculator

When i try to raise a number to a power nothing happens. Any ideas?

You are lucky. Calculate the number by which you want to divide (divisor), then press the reciprocal key (1/X) or raise it to the -1 power.

You are not using it correctly. To calculate the exponential of a number you use the key sequence [SHIFT][LN] to access the exponential function. Then type it the exponent (positive or negative) and close the parenthesis.

You do not use the power key (^)

The exponential function is not affected by the angle unit when you are using real values.

If you are using an HP 12c or have the button on the calculator "yx" you first enter the number you wish to raise (y) then enter then the power (x). For instance to find 230 (2 to the power of 30) you input the number 2 then hit the enter key on the calculator, then input 30 and hit the yx button.

If you have another model of calculator the procedure may be similar or the buttons. Play around with it. By the way the solution to 2 raised to the 30th power is 1,073,741,824.

You have two buttons to calculate powers: The [x^2] calculates the square of a number while the [caret ^] key allows you to calculate any power, be it with integer, fraction or negative exponent.

Both keys are next to one another, one below OPTN and the other below the VARS key.

To calculate roots, you have the square root [SHIFT][x^2] the xroot key [SHIFT] [caret ^] , the CUBE root [SHIFT] [(] , and the inverse key [SHIFT][).

To raise a value to another value, use the ^ key above and left of the 7 key. For example, to raise 2 to the 3rd power, press 2 ^ 3 ENTER and see 8.

To raise 10 to a power, use 10^x (the 2nd function of the LOG key). To raise e to a power, use e^x (the 2nd function of the LN key). To raise a number to another, use y^x (the key just above the divide key).

Type in the number you want to raise to the 3rd power. Then press the button that looks like a rooftop (4 buttons above the on button). Then type 3 then type enter/=.

On the TI-36X there is no rooftop key, there is a yx key. This key is two keys below the on button. To use it, put the number in, press the yx key, put the exponent in, press the equal button.

You use the ^ (caret) button, which is on the left hand-side to the left and up one from the 7 button.

Press 9 then ^ button then 23 and the equal button.

Press 9 then ^ button then 23 and the equal button.

ok so when you're typing it into your calc. like that don't type it in without parenthesis.

example:

2^3=8

to find the cube root of 8, you type in 8^(1/3)

DONT type 8^1/3 because that means that you raising the 8 by a one and then dividing that answer by 3
