Look up the logarithm of 1.02 in a log table, multiply it by 36, then do a reverse lookup in the log table. If you have a log-log slide rule, you can do the whole thing there. That's the way they used to do things before they invented electricity :-)

### How to solve an equation with negative exponent

You probably want to calculate the numerical value of some mathematical expression with numbers raised to negative exponents.
Just enter the expression as you would with positive exponents Except that before entering the value of an exponent press the change sign key, marked (-), or +/- or (+/-). Do not confuse the change sign with the usual minus sign, which is usually displayed bigger then the change sign. Make sure that the (-) is displayed before the value of the exponent. Use parentheses if necessary.

Which exponent function?
To enter an exponent of ten, use 2nd [EE].
To raise ten to an exponent, use 2nd [10^x].
To raise e to an exponent, use 2nd [e^x].
To raise an arbitrary number to an exponent, use ^.

### How to enter exponents

If you mean an exponent of ten, use the EE function (the shifted function of the "," key, located just above the "7" key. For example, to enter 1.2 times ten to the negative 3, press 1 . 2 2ND [EE] (-) 3

To raise a number to an exponent, use the ^ key located just above the divide key. For example, to calculate 3 raised to the 4th, press 3 ^ 4 ENTER

To enter powers of trigonometric functions you must enclose the functions in parentheses and then apply the exponent to the whole. For example X1t =(sin T)^3 , Y1t=(cos T)^3 will give you a shape similar to a rhombus with concave sides. The symbol ^syands for the operation of raising to a power. The key is the one with the caret symbol ^ , and it is wedged between the xsqure and EXIT keys (third row of keys).
As regards the cotangent, use the equivalent definition cot(X)=1/tan(X).

### What do I press to get the exponent 3 on BA II PLUS? Thanks

To raise a value to a power, use the y^x key located just above the 9 key. For example, to raise 2 to the third power, press 2 y^x 3 =

Unlike most calculators, there is no dedicated key for decimal exponents. You will have to use the above procedure to raise 10 to an exponent.

### Where is the exponent key on Casio fx-115es calculator?

To raise 10 to an exponent, use the 10^x function (SHIFT log). To raise e to an exponent, use the e^x function (SHIFT ln). To raise an arbitrary value to an exponent, use x^y (just above the sin key). To enter an exponent of ten, use the x10^x key to the right of the decimal point.

### Whenever I type in a negative number raised to an exponent, the calculator outputs a negative number! even for a question like -2^2. How do I fix this?

You're not raising a negative number to an exponent, you're negating a number raised to an exponent.

If you want to raise -2 to the second power, you need to enter it as
( (-) 2 ) ^ 2

Without the parens, what you're getting is the equivalent of -(2^x)

### Exponents

To enter decimal exponents, use the x10^x key below the 3, followed by the exponent. For example, to enter one million, press 1 x x10^x 6 and see 1000000 (actually, the leading one is optional: if you press x10^x without a value, the calculator will supply a 1).

To raise a value to a number, use the x^ key above the sin, followed by the exponent. For example, to calculate 2^3, press 2 x^ 3 = and see 8.
