Use the (-) key to the right of the decimal point. Use this key for entering any negative number.

How do i enter an exponent for ti-30xiis


Exponents of 10 are entered by pressing [2nd][X^-1] (EE).
For powers of any base, enter the base, press the [^] (below PI) then enter exponent. Use the (-) white key if exponent is negative.

Depending on your version of the TI-30, you will either find a button with a y to the exponent of x or a button that is the carot (^) sign. you would type (1.0075)^(-240), where ^ is the appropriate button (y^x or just ^).

I don't know how to type in negative exponents on my TI 30XIIS


The same way you type in a negative number. Make sure you use the (-) key just to the right of the decimal point key to enter a negative sign, not the - key you use for subtraction.

HOW CAN I GET AN EXPONENT FROM TI-84 EX: B


You cannot use a letter as an exponent, unless you stored a numerical value in memory B (EX: 3 [STO>] [ALPHA] B stores value 3 in B)
For any numerical value of exponent ( positive, negative, integer, fraction, what have you) you use the general power key, marked with a caret [^] under the [CLEAR] key.

Example: To enter 15 to power 5
Type in 15
Press [^] key
Type in the value of the exponent (5) and press [ENTER]
You get 759375 as result.

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)

How do you put in the number in scientific notation on the TI 34 II calculator?


Type in the mantissa, then the EE key (for Enter Exponent) above the 7 key, then the exponent. If it's a negative exponent, press the (-) key to the right of the decimal point before entering the exponent.

Please explain which buttons to push on TI-36x solar calculator to find the pKa of benzoic acid. the Ka for benzoic acid is 6.5 X 10 to the -5th ? (Sorry I don't know how to type the exponents for you)


You need the [EE] key to enter powers of 10 exponents.
You need the change sign key [+/-] key.
You need the [LOG] key.

pKa: 6.5 [EE] [+/-] 5 [LOG] [+/-]
There are two change sign: The first (either before or after the exponent 5), the last is entered after you press the log key , so as to negate (make negative if result is positive, and make positive is result is negative) the value.
The result should be 4.1870866 or 4.19

Decimals in the exponents for TI-30Xa


Hi,
You have a key labeled [Y to the x], use it for all the powers or roots that do not have a dedicated key or key sequence. Let the key be [^]

Ex: 13.675 to the power 1.33 is entered as 13.675 [^] (1.33) [=].
The result is 32.41778634
Ex: (-64)[^](2/3) [=] gives 16 as result. The (-) is the change sign key
Ex: (2.87655)^(-6.778) is entered as 2.87655 [^] ( (-) 6.778 ) [=] 0.0007758
The (-) is the change sign (or the negative of), not the regular minus. When you have a negative exponent or a complicated exponent, it is safer to enclose the whole exponent inside parentheses.

Hope it helps.
Thank you for using FixYa
