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

Hi there,

To switch the EL-738 off, press the 2nd Function button and then press the ON key.

That will switch off your calculator.

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.

It's marked "y-superscript-x" and is the shifted function of the DEPR key.

To calculate this you press ALPHA (the green key) and 5 or 6 depending on if you want sample variance (ALPHA 5) and for population variance (ALPHA 6).

Hi, use the y^x, the 2ndF of the DEPR button. Try 1.02, then 2ndF, then DEPR, then 24.

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.

For integral powers of ten, use the EE key, just above the 7 key. For example, to enter 1.3 time ten to the fourth, press 1 . 3 EE 4

To raise e to a power, use the e^x function (the shifted function of the LN key on the top row). For example, to calculate e raised to the 1.2 power, press 1 . 2 2nd [e^x] =

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 =
