Question about Texas Instruments TI-36 X Solar Calculator

It may be that you have somehow changed to a 'mode' that only shows integer values.

Try pressing the green button, then 5, then 9. Then try the calculation again.

If this fails, you can use Google as a calculator - search Google for sqrt(0.4053) and see what happens.. :-)

If, for example, you're getting the square root of 3 as the square root of 3, press the S-D button (just above the DEL) button to convert the symbolic result to a decimal result.

If you want all results to come up in decimal, press SHIFT SETUP 2 to select the LineIO mode.

In general you cannot. If the square root happens to be an integer (ex: SQRT (4)=2) or a rational number (SQRT(16/9)=4/3) you can convert from one form to the other, but that is the same as converting from a decimal to a fraction.

However you can never convert 1.414213562 (the first 10 digits of SQRT(2)) into the radical SQRT(2). The reason is that root here is an irrational number: its decimal representation is endless and not periodic (non repeating).

The square root button is the button to the left of the division button and to the right of the square button. So enter the number first, then press the square root to find your answer.

The square root of a negative number is an imaginary number, and the TI-30XA does not deal with imaginary numbers.

However, the square root of -x is equal to i times the square root of x. So, to calculate the square root of -4, for example, press 4 square_root = and read 2. Thus the square root of -4 is 2i.

Are we discussing squares or square roots?

The square root is the 2nd function of the multiply key.

There is no square function on the keyboard. Instead, simply raise the number to the second power using the ^ key just above the divide.

Power 1/2 is the same as square root: You can use the square root key to the left of the square key.

Similarly power 1/3 is the cube root. You use the [SHIFT][Square root] key sequence.

Power 2/3 is the square of the cube root, or the cube root of the square.

More generally, you can use the universal power key, marked with X with a raised white rectangle. It is between X square and log.

Ex: Calculate 15^(2/3)

15 [X with raised rectangle] 2 [/] 3 [)] [=]; the result is 6.082

The last parenthesis closes the left parenthesis introduced by the calculator.

Alternatively you can use the cube root and the x-root selections available under the MATH menu.(selections 4 and 5)

Hi shiny_diamon

Here is a picture of the powers and root functions of your calculator.

1.To calculate the cubic root of a number you use the key combination shown on line 5

Ex: Cubic root of 27

27 [2nd] [3 root x] [EXE]; Should get 3

2. You can use the general root key on line 7 [2nd][x Root y]

Ex: Cubic root of 125

125 [2nd][ x Root y] 3 [EXE] Should get 5

(-125) [2nd][x Root y] 3 [EXE]; Should get -5

3. You can also yse the general power key on line 6: [Y to x], but the degree of the root is entered as a fraction 1/3

Ex: cubic root of -125.

(-125) [Y to x]( 1/3) [EXE]; You should get -5

**4. The [Y to x[ key is the one you use to obtain all other roots fourth, fift, tenth, n-th.**

Ex: Fourth root of 256

256 [Y to x] (1/4) [EXE]: You should get 4

5. To extract the squqre root of a number you can use the key on the 3rd line [root x] or the general power key on line 6 with exponent 1/2

Exemple square root of 256

256 [Root x] [EXE] should give you 16

256 [Y to x] (1/2) [EXE] should give you 16 also

Hope that helps.

if there is a square root symbol on one button than use that.

punch in your numeber en then that button to derive result.

On a Casio you have to invoke the function call first because they have shared buttons.
