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

If you are talking about the multiplication sign, look for a key marked with a cross. It should be in the same column as the other operations, between the subtraction (-) and the division keys.

How do I raise the power of 30 on calculator?


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.

To raise any number to any power, use the y^x key, just above the divide key. For example, to calculate 3 to the 5th power, press 3 y^x 5 =
