Question about Sharp EL-738 Scientific Calculator

How do you raise to a power?

Ad

I don't know about this specific calculator, but there is probably a button on your calculator that has a "y" with an "x" as a superscript (exponent). Or is could be reversed. But you wanted 2^8, you would push the 2 first, then the exponent button, then the 8, and there's your answer.

Good luck.

There is a y^x key on the EL-738. It is a second function so you press the base number then second function key and then the DEPR key (which has y^x above it in orange) and then you push the correct number for your exponent
